So, Chanel had a fully functioning rocket ship at their A/W17 show


What's a massive, multi-million-euro fashion house to do when every fashion show concept has been done before?

Get a massive, smoke-emulating rocket ship to take off in the middle of fashion week, obviously.

Chanel just amazed show-goers with a giant replica of a spaceship at Paris Fashion Week, which blasted off surrounded by models rocking Karl Lagerfeld's latest looks.

The show was out of this world thanks to the intergalactic stunt, which saw the giant ship lift off, omitting billowing clouds of smoke.

The ten-second countdown created a tense atmosphere, as the Chanel logo-emblazoned rocket prepared to take off, making it the perfect backdrop for the astronomical clothes. 

Chanel ambassadors Pharrell Williams, Cara Delevingne and Lily-Rose Depp were all in attendance, and sat front row to take in the space-themed event. 

The collection itself also paid homage to all things intergalactic, with metallic boots, helmet-like necklines and embellished goggles hitting the catwalk.

Today is the last day of fashion week, and Chanel clearly wanted to end the festivities with a bang.

We're not sure anyone will be forgetting this fashion stunt for quite a while.
