Behind the Scenes: BLEU DE CHANEL Advertising Film Directed By Scorsese

Last week Chanel released the advertising film for Bleu de Chanel directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Gaspard Ulliel. The behind the scenes videos below are an interesting glimpse into the making of the short film and you get to see the genius of Scorsese at work. Chanel has done it again with another great advertising film. I’m looking forward to the next one!

Dee & Ricky Limited Edition Lego Chanel Lipstick

The infamous kidult twins Dee & Ricky just released their newest limited edition Lego piece – the Chanel lipstick.  These are not for wearing – not on your lips anyway.  The duo has found fame by making Lego accessories ranging from hearts, music notes, crosses and even cigarettes.  I must say this is my favorite by far!  Limited to only 50 pieces, you can get yours by emailing the twins at INFO@DEEANDRICKY.COM.

Chanel Unveils Scorsese-Directed BLEU DE CHANEL Advertising Film

Building on a tradition of partnerships with influential directors, CHANEL gave a free hand to Academy Award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese to direct the highly anticipated short advertising film for its new men’s fragrance BLEU DE CHANEL.

Entitled Bleu de Chanel, the film features celebrated French actor and rising international star Gaspard Ulliel playing the role of a young actor whose artistic talent, rebelliousness and luck have recently catapulted him into the public eye, but who refuses to conform to the lifestyle and expectations his newly found fame has forced upon him. As he struggles with new pressures and demands, he encounters his first love who for years supplied him with the passion and turmoil that fueled his work. Faced with a choice, he pushes aside convention to embody the bold character of BLEU DE CHANEL by daring to be unexpected.

A reflection of his deep history with the Rolling Stones, Scorsese chose the song She Said Yeah, a 1965 release from their album December’s Children (And Everybody’s), as the soundtrack for the film.

“Martin Scorsese is a director whom I’ve admired for a long time,” says Gaspard Ulliel. “I see him as one of the great masters of contemporary filmmaking. Throughout the five days of work, he overflowed with energy and enthusiasm and achieved something that truly stands out from other fragrance commercials.”

Created by CHANEL Master Perfumer Jacques Polge, BLEU DE CHANEL is a woody aromatic fragrance for today’s modern man. The provocative fragrance features notes of grapefruit, dry cedar and labdanum.

CHANEL J12 Marine Launch with Laird Hamilton

CHANEL J12 Marine Launch with Laird Hamilton

Over the weekend Chanel invited some fancy-pants people out to Montauk to celebrate the release of the lastest J12 Marine men’s watch.  Laird Hamilton, the new brand ambassador, is a professional surfer and married to professional volley ball player Gabrielle Reece.  “Like CHANEL’s newest brand ambassador, Laird Hamilton, CHANEL has allowed themselves to be swept away by the beauty of the waves, and has incorporated these elements into the design of the J12 Marine, the newest addition to CHANEL’s fine timepiece collection.”

The guests ““…dined on fresh seafood at wooden tables and then gathered around the fire pit for cocktails and smores.”  Can we say jealous?  And how about the surf boards?  I’ve always been to scared to try surfing but a Chanel surf board can easily sway me…

The event looks like it was awesome and though you may not think of Chanel when you think of surfing, Chanel always manages to have that magic touch that makes just about anything seem like it was meant to be paired with Chanel.  My only question is, where was my invitation to this? :)

Introducing Les Khakis de Chanel Nail Collection

Les Khakis de Chanel Nail Collection - Khaki Vert

I just got this in my inbox and almost jumped out of my chair.  Yes, I was once known to wear tips with airbrush designs and animal print nail art.  Now, I’m opting for neutral, short, natural nails and the new collection, Les Khakis de Chanel, is right up my alley.

The trio of Khakis was created by Chanel Global Creative Director of Makeup Peter Philips to celebrate Vogues’ Fashion’s Night Out.  Each Khaki has a hint of a color: Khaki Rose, Khaki Brun and Khaki Vert (rose, brown and green respectively). The colors can be worn alone or combined to create an urban camouflage.

I adore these colors and I cannot wait for them to release on September 10th.  I’ve been wanting an army green nail polish for quite some time and now I can finally have it – in fact, I will definitely be getting all 3! Les Khakis de Chanel nail collection retails for $25/bottle and will be available at Chanel boutiques, Chanel.com and select department stores (waiting to find out which ones -will update when I know!).
