Chanel's statement jacket is timeless, gender-neutral, and (obviously) a hit with celebrities, so it just seems right to immortalize the thing. For this month's Little Black Jacket exhibition in New York, Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld photographed more than 100 notables, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Joan Smalls, and Alexander Wang, all wearing the LBJ. Can't get to the Big Apple before June 15? Get clicking on the exhibit website for behind-the-scenes videos, photos of the shoot, the making of the jacket, and more. [Racked NY]
