The models emerged from a hidden trapdoor wearing high-heeled clogs, jaunty ginghams, tweed jackets, flirty lace insets and crocheted dresses – and carrying egg basket purses, quilted purses and sheaves of wheat.

Chanel ambassador Lily Allen had the celeb-studded front row crowing (Leigh Lezark, Claudia Schiffer, Irina Lazareanu, Sean Lennon, Kemp Muhl, Virginie Ledoyen, Rihanna and Prince) with her barnyard romp ‘Not Fair’.
