Karl Lagerfeld receives highest honor at Chanel Fall 2017 Couture reveal in Paris

It's seemingly easy for Karl Lagerfeld to leave us speechless, but now, we get to return the love and recognize the designer for all of his hard work.

The 83-year-old fashion powerhouse and creative director of Chanel was presented with the highest honor, the Médaille Grand Vermeil de la Ville, by Paris' mayor Anne Hidalgo, after the presentation of his Fall 2017 Couture line on Tuesday. The medal recognizes Lagerfeld's dedication and service to the city of Paris.

"I am a foreigner and strangers see things through different eyes, with a detachment. Vive la France!" he said, according to Vogue. "And above all, Vive Paris."

"Your imagination is boundless, and your ability to transport us into a different universe. You are a universal person, but you are also someone who makes Paris more beautiful and more creative. You are a Parisian," said Hidalgo.

His prodigious July 4th presentation for his new line solidifies the renowned designer's love for the romantic City of Light. The set, which was built at the Grand Palais, featured a scale model of the most iconic image of Paris -- the Eiffel Tower itself. The landmark may have also been Lagerfeld's inspiration for his new collection. The designs followed the structure of the tower itself in different patterns and materials.

In mirroring the Eiffel Tower's triangular structure, the presentation contributed to the room's old Parisian aura. The new line featured Chanel's iconic coats in navy, gray and black and were decorated with pockets, buttons and asymmetrical cuts -- with matching skirts and occasionally bags. Reminiscent of old wartime fashion, models also paraded matching boat hats and angled dress suits. Following the procession of coats and suits, the house delved into evening gowns and full, bell-shaped skirts, frequently adorned with feathers and velvet.

The show closed with a jaw-dropping cream and voluminous long-sleeved wedding gown. Flowers adorned the lower hemline, while feathers and a bow brought to life the upper silhouette. And to top off the look, the model sported an equally elegant veil.

Famous faces such as Cara Delevingne, Julianne Moore, Katy Perry and Tilda Swinton sat front row to show their love for Lagerfeld and his designs.

"It's beyond, and there's something really beautiful about this show, this setting," said Swinton, according to WWD, about the breathtaking set.
