It’s a party with a gag­gle of Chanel-ified pretty young things: Lily-Rose Depp (looked on by her mother, Vanessa Par­adis), Sofia Richie, El­lie Bam­ber, Sis­tine Stal­lone, Bella Heath­cote, Rowan Blanchard and Wil­low Smith. We hear Phar­rell Williams and Anna Mouglalis took part in some karaoke at the Ritz bar, and Geral­dine Chap­lin was taught how to pre­pare choco­late mousse in the Ritz kitchen. A cer­tain bell­man, who has met both Gabrielle Chanel and Char­lie Chap­lin, mused of the night: “Hav­ing Geral­dine Chap­lin makes it feel like Made­moi­selle Chanel is still alive.”
