Lisa Eldridge shows us how to create an effortless evening look with Chanel’s Les Beiges. I’m especially loving the eye shadow and nail polish – they’re not new products but they look really pretty.

In Woody Allen’s latest film, Blue Jasmine, Cate Blanchett is in the title role. Lucky Magazine reports that the costume designer, Suzy Benzinger, stated: “I called up Karl Lagerfeld and, I have to tell you, I was astounded…I sent a note and in two days he shipped out two custom made jackets for Cate Blanchett with the most beautiful note. And I just thought, ‘Oh my god,’ and he just said ‘For Cate, I’d do anything’”.
I wish Karl would say, “For Gabriella, I do anything.” Sigh. I’m still looking forward to seeing Blue Jasmine though – I love Woody’s leading ladies.
WWD asked a group of designers to sketch a hypothetical gift fit for a little king — here’s Karl Lagerfeld’s sketch of a crown-themed pacifier.
Karl Lagerfeld is collaborating with Italia Independent, founded by Lapo Elkann, a man who is also often seen with statement glasses. An Italian industrialist and entrepreneur, Elkann has worked on many projects, including the Fiat x Gucci collaboration. One of the categories that he produces is eyewear, which he has perfected a velvet-like finish.
The two eyewear lovers, (I mean, when was the last time you saw Karl without glasses?), will create three pairs of optical glasses and sunglasses each, with two being unisex. When asked about the collaboration Lagerfeld stated: “I love velvet gloves on iron hands and velvet sunglasses on steel eyes.” (WWD).
We’ve seen many photo art projects depicting Chanel — from burgers, lollipops and ice cream cones. Artist and photographer Clara Hallencreutz is throwing her hat in the ring with a series of still life photographs of the infamous double C’s done up in food and flowers. You can buy her prints on her online store.

Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin created a look that was natural, yet glamorous, for Lake Bell at the 2013 Espy Awards. Read on to see how to get the look…
Inspiration: I wanted Lake’s ESPY Awards makeup to have a glamorous yet laid back feel to it.
Skin: First, I hydrated her skin with Le Jour de Chanel serum to give her a fresh glow.
Foundation: I wanted to allow her natural skin to come through, so I lightly applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to her skin.
Blush: I sculpted her cheekbones with CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in No. 30 for a healthy but natural looking glow.
Eye: To define her beautiful eyes, I lined the upper lid only with CHANEL Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Noir.
Mascara: Lashes were curled and coated with two coats of Le Volume De Chanel Mascara in Noir.
Brows: I filled in her brows with CHANEL Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Brun Cendre. Lips: I finished the look with Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Favorite a beautiful orange red.

Karl Lagerfeld has once again made a fashion film — “Women Only” — to launch the most recent collection soon to hit boutiques, the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 pre-collection. He cleverly uses his previous film “Once Upon a Time”, featuring Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel, as the backdrop for “Women Only”. Karl chose the obscurity of a Parisian cinema as the set and we see models stroll in – individually and in pairs – all wearing head to to Chanel.
I think “Women Only” is one of Karl’s best fashion films – it’s just another medium for us to see the gorgeous Chanel creations in a different light – rather than just staring at stills. “Women Only” does a beautiful job of highlighting the Chanel collection – I’m convinced, I want it all!
Label: Pop Noire

I love this video for the Chanel Fall 2013 Superstition makeup collection. I saw it on the Chanel website and was hoping it would be on YouTube. Chanel always does a wonderful job of paying tribute to the legacy and codes that Coco Chanel left us.
