Chanel creative designer Karl Lagerfeld has some competition on his hands—someone else is steeling the spotlight—but it's all good, Karl wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hudson Kroenig, the designer's three-year-old godson, recently caused a frenzy of "ooh's" and "aah's" when he walked the runway at fashion house's Métier d'Arts 2013 show this week, clad in—what else—a full Chanel ensemble.

According to the Telegraph, he walked hand-in-hand down the runway with his dad, 32-year-old male model Brad Kroenig (this is where we melted, too). Hudson is also the godson of Karl Lagerfeld, who serves as Chanel's infamous creative director.

But the little guy is no amateur when it comes to the catwalk—the Telegraph says this wasn't his first time on the runway—apparently he has appeared in previous Chanel shows and has also been photographed for W magazine, German Vogue and is a part of Lagerfeld's 'Little Black Jacket' exhibition.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
