Chanel Cruise 2012/13 Show Beauté

Versailles de CHANEL Collection chanel cruise 2012 2013

Peter Philips created a lovely pink look that was “between girly and rebel” – very editorial and runway but not sure how it will translate as an everyday look. I will say that it was very pretty on the models and was the perfect compliment to the pastel rainbow of tweeds and chiffons that Karl Lagerfeld sent down the runway. The icing on the let-them-eat-cake look were the velvet double-C Chanel logo stickers that were placed high on the cheekbones and under the eyes of the models to mimic beauty marks made famous by Marie Antoinette.

As striking as the makeup was, I couldn’t take my eyes off of the hair by Sam McKnight. From the initial images, I thought that the models all were just wearing Dutch Boy bob wigs in pastel colors. When I saw close up images I saw that the hairstyles were actually much more complex. In a way, it was like an 18th century interpretation of a mullet – business in the front and party in the back. And by party, I mean long ponytails with big bows at the nape of the models’ necks.

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:

*The “Versailles de CHANEL” Collection will be available at specific point of sales in December 2012
**Chanel stated that these will not be sold in the press release but we reported yesterday that they would be sold based on other sources. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there will be a last minute decision to sell these!
