PARIS (AFP) - Princess Sirivannavari of Thailand browsed breakfast cereals in a tiara, actress Keira Knightley lingered by the cheese counter and singer Rihanna looked glamorous over by biscuits and cakes.

Karl Lagerfeld, 80, took VIPs shopping on Tuesday at the "Chanel Supermarket", complete with fully stocked aisles, check-outs, trolleys, special offers and discount posters.

Always widely anticipated as one of "the events" of Paris fashion, he transformed the city's vast Grand Palais into a life-sized supermarket.

Actress Melanie Griffith, actress-singer Vanessa Paradis and photographer Mario Testino bolstered the front row while star models Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner, sister of reality TV star Kim Kardashian, were on the catwalk.
