Making of the Chanel Cruise 2011/12 Press Kit

Making of the Chanel Cruise 2011/12 LookbookChanel News posted some images of the making of the Cruise 2011/12 look book.  I like how they’ve been doing their “behind the scenes” images in black and white – it’s so Chanel.  Looks like Karl Lagerfeld shot the campaign – I don’t know the name of the model – someone fill me in if you know.  The images below were shot at Studio 7L, Paris by Olivier Saillant.  The trio of artists are Sam Mc Knight (hair), Anny Errandonea (nails) and Peter Philips (makeup).  I’m drooling over the shoes, chains, brooches and camellias… and I spy a Chanel comet necklace used as an armhole of a sleeve!  Can’t wait to see the finished product!

Karl Lagerfeld asked Carine Roitfled, former Paris Vogue Editor in Chief, to style the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/2012 campaign. The shoot took place in Paris and featured Chanel it-girl Freja Beha Erichsen.  Karl Lagerfeld gushed, “The mix with Freja was genius.”  In addition to styling for Chanel, Roitfeld will be keeping herself busy as a guest editor and stylist at Barneys New York this coming Fall.

Keira Knightly Coco Mademoiselle Ads – First Look

A few months ago we showed some sneak peeks of the new Coco Mademoiselle campaign featuring Keira Knightley again.  We’ve got a few more looks – we’ll have to wait until March 23rd to see the full campaign roll out.  From what I can see, Knightley looks beautiful in the ad.  I can’t wait to see the film that accompanies the photos!

More Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 Ad Campaign Shots

Last week I posted the first images that had surfaced online of the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld and now more images are coming to light.  The complete spring 2011 campaign also includes Stella Tenant in addition to Baptiste Giabiconi and Freja Beha. The new images have the same relaxed, playful mood and garden backdrop – a beautiful canvas to showcase the lovely collection.

Blake Lively – The Face of Chanel Mademoiselle Bags

Last month, we heard rumors about Blake Lively taking on the role of brand ambassador for a Chanel handbag line.  We speculated that it may be for the Chanel Coco Cocoon collection with Blake following in the footsteps of Lily Allen and Vanessa Paradis.  Instead, WWD has just reported that Blake Lively is the face of a new line of Chanel handbags – the Mademoiselle bag.

First seen in the Chanel 2010/2011 Cruise show, the Mademoiselle bag is an oblong shaped bag featuring the brand’s signature quilting, chain strap and double-C logo.  Available in an array of colors and fabrics (cloth jersey, lambskin, calfskin, alligator, satin and shagreen), the bag retails for $2,000 – $3,300 for base ranges and over $30,000 for exotic skins.

Karl shot the campaign in Paris at the historic 31 Rue Cambon on the storied Chanel mirrored staircase that Mademoiselle herself would sit and watch her collection shows.  When asked why he chose Blake Lively, Karl stated:  “She’s full of life…She’s a kind of American dream girl…I think she will become a great actress.”

The ads for the new Chanel Mademoiselle bags will begin to surface in April 2011 magazines – I can’t wait to see the campaign!

Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 Ad Campaign

Images of Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign (as printed in the Elle UK Feb 2011 issue) have surfaced online and for the first two shots, Karl has gone with his favorite models of the moment – Baptiste Giabiconi and Freja Beha.  You may remember, the Spring/Summer 2011 collection was inspired by Last Year at Marienbad and the Grand Palais was transformed into a garden setting from the movie.  The ad campaign seems to be following a similar vein as they are photographed in a serene garden with lush foliage.

Blake Lively the New Face of Chanel Handbags


Word on the street is that Blake Lively just got back from Paris after shooting a new Chanel handbag ad campaign set to release in the Spring.  As usual, Karl Lagerfeld took the pictures and it’s no surprise that Blake is his “it” girl right now as she’s been spotted at Chanel events lately.  I wonder if it’s for the Coco Cocoon collection?  Only time will tell – we’ll see in a few months.

Vintage Chanel Advertisements

Two of my favorite things are Chanel and advertisements – when you put the two together, you can’t go wrong.  I especially love vintage Chanel No 5 perfume ads and ads featuring apparel and accessories in the early days of Karl Lagerfeld designing for Chanel.  When I was in Junior High School, I would rip out Chanel ads and paste them into my scrapbook.  Unfortunately, the scrap book is long gone, but Blogue has put together a nice collection of vintage Chanel ads – check them out on Blogue.com.

Elisa Sednaoui Featured in the New Chanel Eyewear Campaign

Chanel recently announced that Italian model Elisa Sednaoui is the face of the new Chanel eyewear campaign.  She’s been seen in dozens of European fashion magazines and earlier this year Karl Lagerfeld shot an editorial with Elisa for Numéro Magazine.  I wonder if that’s how he came to choose her for the eyewear campaign. Sednauoi is wearing the Jewel button sunglasses from the Cruise 2010/11 collection. We’ll probably start seeing these ads run in fashion magazines pretty soon.

My Two Cents: Natalie Portman For Chanel

natalie portman chanel
A while back I posted about how I thought Keira Knightley was not the right person for the Coco Mademoiselle ads. “Though stunningly beautiful, I didn’t think Ms. Knightly embodied the class, elegance and style of Mlle. Chanel.” I meant to add that I thought Natalie Portman would have been a better choice. I just saw this photo of Ms. Portman wearing Chanel recently and it made me think of that again. Chanel announced a while back that Audrey Tautou would be the new face of Chanel No. 5 so I guess that’s out of the question for now. We’ll have to see, but my vote for the next face of a Chanel fragrance is N.P.
