For Kelsey Merritt, the best day of Paris Fashion Week was the last. Though each day before was likewise incredible, the last brought the Chanel fashion show—and the fabulous fall and winter womenswear styles that the brand debuted.

The American model represented the brand well, too. She showed up for the fashion show in Paris decked out in Chanel-branded fashion. To a white camisole with (which featured the Chanel logo in large black print), she added a red and black striped skirt with a side slit and a pair of black slingback flats. The 27-year-old carried a black and gold shoulder bag and sported gold earrings for the afternoon affair.

Her outfit was, of course, more than fit for the high fashion affair, which featured a runway show that put the best upcoming fall and winter fashion from the luxury brand on display. Merritt’s Instagram post from the occasion featured fabulous snaps of her own outfit as well as photos and clips of the beautiful styles on the runway.

“closing paris fashion week with @chanelofficial 🖤 loved the collection!” she wrote in the caption of her post. “definitely the highlight of my fashion week 🥰.”

It’s not hard to understand why the show was the best part of her trip to Paris—the fashion was just that good. Plus, Merritt proved she can rock a carefully curated Chanel look with ease herself (so much so that we think she should’ve taken to the runway, too).
