Gorgeous Chanel Photos on Jak & Jil

One of my favorite fashion street style blogs is Jak & Jil and while I was perusing the site the other day I came across two photos that I absolutely love and had to share them with you.  Both images are taken by Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil.

Les Exclusifs de Chanel: Gardénia

chanel gardeniaOne of my favorite scents from Les Exclusifs de Chanel is Gardénia.  I’ve been waiting for the right moment to get it and I think that the light, fresh scent is perfect for spring and summer.  I tend to stay away from heavier scents once the weather gets warmer and Gardénia’s light floral scent is lovely in the hotter months.  Created by Master Perfumer Ernest Beaux in 1925 (also the creator of Chanel N°5), Chanel Gardénia is an ode to the camellia, Mademoiselle Chanel’s favorite flower. Gardénia is definitely on my shopping list this spring.

Ginnifer Goodwin and Her New Chanel Jacket

ginnifer goodwin chanel
Ginnifer Goodwin recently purchased a Chanel jacket and declared that she wants to marry it. She stated: ”It’s like a dream. I love it so much I might marry it! We’ve only been seeing each other for 24 hours, but it deserves a fabulous, fabulous celebration.”

How someone can have the salary of an film and television actress and only now purchase a Chanel jacket is beyond me. But that’s just my jealousy speaking because I badly want my own jacket to marry. One day…

Karl Lagerfeld is full of Karlisms but could you imagine hearing him give live commentary? On air?  Well, our wildest dreams are coming true because Karl Lagerfeld will be providing commentary for television station French 2 coverage of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th anniversary celebrations.  Lagerfeld stated, “[Commentary is] fun to do because I can make jokes, and jokes of the lowest kind are not against my mentality.”  Can’t wait to tune in!

First Look: Chanel Summer 2012 Makeup Collection

chanel summer 2012 makeup collectionSoon after posting about Chanel Le Vernis Holiday, I came across info online about the Chanel Summer 2012 makeup collection releasing in May 2012.  Inspired by sun and sand, the bronzey colors in the collection will match perfectly with your (faux) sun-kissed glows this summer.  The collection includes all the items you would need to complete a look including new shades for eyes, cheeks, lips and nails.  I’m most excited about the nail colors and the three new shades are called Island, Delight and Holiday.  As I learn more details about the collection I’ll be sure to share them.

First Look: Chanel “Holiday” Orange Nail Polish

Chanel Holiday applied by Chanel's new manicurist Gina Viviano

“Ornate or crazy manicures are impressive, but at the end of the day, I love the simplicity of a perfectly lacquered nail. It’s the ultimate accessory.” – Peter Philips

Chanel is adding it’s two cents to Pantone’s color of the year “Tangerine Tango” in the form of Le Vernis in Holiday. A vibrant orange, the citrus shade was inspired by an orange peel. Peter Philips created the color and stated: “Obviously, I didn’t invent orange … [b]ut I wanted to create a popping, intense orange — it couldn’t be pearly or opalescent. It wasn’t so easy.” No word on when this will be out but I did not see it on the Chanel website though I have seen people showing photos of it on Instagram – maybe it has already been released in other countries. When I find out more I’ll be sure to share. Until then, I can’t wait to get this color on my finger nails!

Behind the Scenes of the Linda Evangelista Chanel Campaign

Chanel posted images of the behind the scenes of the Spring 2012 Chanel Eyewear ad campaign featuring Linda Evangelista and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.  For a moment I thought Lagerfeld shot the campaign on his iPad but I saw a photo with an actual camera and realized perhaps he was taking personal photos on his iPad.  I don’t think the resolution of the photos taken with the iPad would be high enough for print ads.  Nevertheless, it’s great to see the team at work and I will say that I would love to have that Chanel logo backdrop as my wallpaper!
