The stage was set last night at Paris's Grand Palais for an extravagant show to unveil Sonia Rykiel's new boudoir-inspired line for H&M. Complete with a glittering Eiffel Tower, ferris wheel, swing set and cut-out trees strung with thousands of fairy lights, it was a magical night for the iconic designer and the Swedish retailer.

Leading the charge was Lily Cole, who held the reins of a giant moving horse head. While mannequins were dressed in Rykiel's knitwear (not due out until Spring) and rode the ferris wheel. Looking on were Kate Bosworth, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Philippe Starck and Eva Herzigova. Oh, how we *heart* Paris and Rykiel!
