Margaret Qualley was pretty in pink as the “bride” at Chanel’s couture show on Tuesday.

The American actress and Chanel brand ambassador was selected by creative director Virginie Viard to close out the fall/winter 2021/22 event held at the Palais Galliera as part of Paris Couture Week.

Qualley sported a chic bridal ensemble comprised of a pale pink silk gown with long sleeves as well as a pillbox hat with pink bow and short sequinned veil. She carried a bouquet of flowers and stood smiling at the centre of the venue as white confetti fell from the ceiling while the guests – including actress Daisy Edgar-Jones and U.S Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour – applauded during the finale.

The 26-year-old also starred in a collection preview directed by Sofia Coppola and Roman Coppola.

Qualley follows in the footsteps of other fashion stars, such as Lily-Rose Depp, Kendall Jenner, Adut Akech, and Cara Delevingne, who have been tapped to sport bridal attire at previous Chanel shows.

Elsewhere in the spectacle, Viard presented a line influenced by the Impressionist movement and the work of artists such as Claude Monet and Edgar Degas.

“Inspired by movements of French painting, a multitude of fashion muses are brought to life by the magic of the haute couture ateliers, as colourful tweed suits echo Impressionist brushstrokes and dresses bloom with English garden flowers,” a representative commented.

Highlights of the collection included a tweed jacket worn with a flamingo-pink feather skirt, a navy boucle jacket with floral design, a magenta two-piece suit, and a canary yellow dress with crystal button details and ruffles on the skirt.
