Once checked off the list and inside, you're instructed to pick up your gold membership card and have your official Chanel portrait taken for identification purposes.

There's also a fashion book library and other rooms filled with surprises like a numerologist ready to calculate your future. Who, naturally, I asked, "how many Chanel bags will I own in this lifetime?" to which she replied "too many to count."
