Jenna Coleman was one of the stars who arrived for the Chanel Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday, after a week of unrest in the city.

The actress, 37, was joined by Phoebe Tonkin and Camilla Morrone in the front row.

Paris Fashion Haute Couture week started on Monday, but the city has been rocked by six nights of protests after Nahel M was shot dead in a Parisian suburb on Tuesday.
Celine canceled their menswear show – which was off the official calendar – on Sunday due to the chaos that saw shops looted, cars set on fire and fighting erupting in the streets.
Celine designer Hedi Slimane said it was “inconsiderate” to put on a fashion show while Paris was “sad and bruised.”
Thousands have been arrested since the protests began, and some 45,000 officers have been deployed across the country to quell the unrest.
The intensity of the protests eased somewhat on Sunday night, when the grandmother of teenage shooting victim Nahel M. called on citizens to demonstrate peacefully and to stop the violence.
