Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld have been touring their “Little Black Jacket”/”La Petite Veste Noire” book for about 6 months now with launches all around the world. They started in April, celebrating in Tokyo with a live set from Karl favorite Azealia Banks, then globe-trotted from New York to Hong Kong to London and a slew of other international fashion capitals to *drumrollll* last night’s Paris launch at the Grand Palais. More than just a book launch and exhibit, the night marked the ceremonious French homecoming for Karl and Carine’s Chanel project. And who had the honor of performing for the occasion? Frank Ocean, that’s who.

The R&B golden boy performed an intimate set to a star-studded crowd last night. Karl stood on couches (ZUT ALORS!) at the Parisian venue alongside model Anja Rubik and Theophilus London (both of whom appear in the book) while Frank crooned a live rendition of “Lost” from his Channel Orange album. It looks like Frank even got a little face time with Uncle Karl behind the scenes. Do we smell a new Lagerfeld muse?? We’ll just have to wait and see how this pans out.
