The it-girls flew into Cannes this week to attend the Chanel Cruise 2012 show. The front row was teaming with some of the world's most fashionable young thangs including Alexa Chung, Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson and Vanessa Paradis.

While the Cannes Film Festival hasn't even started yet, that didn't stop the glitterati which also included Poppy Delevigne, Clémence Poésy, and Anna Mouglalis from perching themselves under a row of white parasols on the French Riviera. They were there to watch Karl Lagerfeld's latest Cruise collection for Chanel held at Hotel du Cap. Most of celebs savoured the summery vibe by wearing short skirts or mini shorts, except for Alexa and Vanessa who opted for longer looks from Chanel.
