Karl Lagerfeld blasts off into outer space for Chloe's fall/winter collection, giving new meaning to being spacey.

And if the sensuous and slinky gowns are anything to go by, any astronaut will definitely be driven to distraction.

The Marriott's ballroom was transformed into a galaxy complete with planets and stars for the occasion, with the tai-tais turning up in full force to nibble on the tangy Caesar salad, pan-fried Atlantic sole and chocolate mousse while they watched the show.

As the models sashayed around, comments could be heard from the ladies who lunch as to what they had bought for the upcoming season.

After the show, many went next door to try on items from the new collection.
