Karl Lagerfeld knows how to throw a party!

The Chanel honcho, posing alongside longtime supermodel Linda Evangelista, sported his traditional black and white attire at the label's Little Black Jacket event in New York.

Evangelista, 47, looked androgynous in a fitted black blazer, creme skirt and Chanel's ballerina flats.

The exhibition features 113 pictures of celebrities posing in Chanel black jackets ... and all the photos were taken by Lagerfeld. The Little Black Jacket expo will be open to the public on June 8 in NYC's SoHo district.
