Vanessa Paradis stuns for Chanel

Vanessa Paradis treated guests to a performance of her songs during an exclusive Chanel party earlier this week.

The 41-year-old star graced the exclusive event at Paris' Trianon on Wednesday to sing some of her classic hits for a host of stylish guests. Fashion icon and the label's creative director Karl Lagerfeld was one person in the audience who listened to Vanessa perform tracks such as Divine Idylle and Joe le Taxi.

Vanessa, who dressed head to toe in Chanel, spoke out to the crowd during her act.

“We have travelled so much together, it’s a real pleasure to play for you tonight,” she smiled.

The brunette beauty dazzled in a sparking embroidered T-shirt and matching skirt from the fashion house's spring couture collection. However, when she took to the stage Vanessa wanted to make a statement so swapped her two-piece for a flowing gown. It featured cape-like layers to give an elegant and elusive feel.

“They are made for the stage,” Vanessa said of the dress, which she added she discovered at Chanel's cruise collection in Dubai earlier this year.

Vanessa's performance follows Chanel's Fall/Winter 14/15 Couture show in the French capital on Tuesday. Karl presented at The Grand Palais and showed off designs such as floor length white dresses and a gold and navy jacket.

Guests at the show included Kristen Stewart, Nina Dobrev and Jared Leto.

Kristen showed off a new cropped copper hair do, and explained her reasoning behind the dramatic chop.

“I’m ultimately going to go a little bit shorter for this next film that I’m going to do called Equals, but I figured, you know, before I went all the way - might as well just play around with something for the show,” she told WWD on the day.
