Jennifer Lopez wanted her daughter to appreciate the "beautiful" Chanel show last week (02.10.12).

The 43-year-old singer has revealed she took four-year-old Emme to the Paris Fashion Week show at the Grand Palais because she thought her fashion-mad daughter would love the glamour and fantasy of Karl Lagerfeld's spring/summer 2013 collection.

Jennifer said: "I thought it would be a good idea. My daughter loves fashion - she's four years old, but she loves clothes and dressing up, like all little girls. And so I thought: 'Oh, wouldn't it be nice to take her to the beautiful Chanel show?'

"It's always so beautiful, kind of like of like a fantasy life. And I hadn't been to a fashion show in a long time, and when I got there, I forgot that the press can kind of just run up to you."

Emme donned a pink dress by the fashion house for the occasion, teamed with a white cardigan and pink shoes, and was estimated to be wearing £1,400-worth of Chanel accessories.

Speaking on German television show 'Wetten, Dass' this weekend, Jennifer added: "She wore [it] because I wanted her to have something Chanel on her. She had a little Chanel bag that they gave her, and a little Chanel pin that they lent us."

Creative director Karl joined the star on the show and was shocked to discover Emme had not been allowed to keep the items.

He raged: "Lent? They took it back? Oh, that's horrible!"
