Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld dazzled the fashion world on Tuesday with a rare nighttime presentation of his fall-winter Haute Couture collection that conjured up all the magic of a walk through starlit Paris.

With his usual sense for high drama, the white-haired designer transformed the Grand Palais, a stately exhibition hall by the River Seine, into a fairytale version of Place Vendome -- a square known as the seat of Parisian luxury, says Reuters report.

Here are the pictures of the best collections from Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2011/2012 fashion show in Paris.
