Kirsten Dunst Wears Chanel on Visit to Turkey

kirsten dunst chanel haute couture spring 2011

Kirsten Dunst is riding the Chanel wave from the Cannes Film Festival across the Mediterranean to Turkey where she’s been spotted wearing Chanel to two events.  Dunst wore Chanel Haute Couture from the Spring 2011 collection to a Courtney Love performance that she attended with Ryan McGinley. She seems to like this collection – because this is the second dress from this collection that she’s worn that features the sheer panels and intricate beading. The delicateness of the dresses complement the delicateness of the actresses features. She also looks really nice in the pale cream/pink/white colors that she’s been wearing.

I’m wondering if Kirsten Dunst wearing all this Chanel is a prelude to a campaign?  I suppose only time will tell…

Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Couture & Chanel Beauté

kirsten dunst in chanel couture cannes film festivalIt seems Kirsten Dunst was having a Chanel moment in Cannes from the Chanel couture gown she wore to the amfAR Gala to the Chanel couture gown she wore to accept the award for Best Actress for her role in Melancholia.  I love the dress that Dunst wore to the award ceremony, very feminine and detailed.  I’m sure upon closer inspection the amount of handwork that is in the bodice is baffling.  I also love the tiered flow-y bottom of the dress – there’s a hint of sheerness on the bottom but I don’t mind it because it starts so low.  Her makeup for the award ceremony and for the premiere of Melancholia was Chanel Beauté and she looked lovely. Details on how to get the looks are below.

Film Festival Awards:
To complement the award-winning actress’s CHANEL Haute Couture strapless dress, Sabrina created Kirsten’s gorgeous, glowing face using CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rosé Tendre and highlighting her cheeks with CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Écrin (available July 2011), Kirsten’s eyes were adorned with Illusion D’Ombre de Chanel Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Epatant (available July 2011) and her lashes were lengthened with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. Sabrina finished the look with CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Passion.

Melancholia Premiere:
For Kirsten’s first red carpet appearance at Cannes, Sabrina used CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rosé Tendre to highlight her complexion and CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Écrin (available July 2011) on the cheeks. Sabrina used Illusion D’Ombre de Chanel Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emerveillé (available July 2011) on the eyelids to create a neutral shimmer, and Precision Eye Definer in Khaki Platine (available July 2011) to define the eyes. To complete the look she used CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir on the eyelashes and applied CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Enthusiast to the lips.

Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Haute Couture at 2011 amfAR Gala

Kirsten Dunst in spring 2011 chanel haute couture at 2011 amfAR Gala

Kirsten Dunst wore a gown from the Spring 2011 Chanel Haute Couture collection to the amfAR Gala.  The dress looks the same as it did on the runway – with the exception of the waist.  On the runway, the dress had an empire waist, while on Kirsten the waist is lowered and a satin belt was added.  I think she wore it well and I think it suits her but I think I like the runway version better (and the shoes!!).  The detailing on the top is just gorgeous but I don’t love this dress.  I just don’t like the sheer bottom dresses that are so popular right now – not my cup of tea.  If the lining of the dress extended to the bottom then I would love this dress.  What do you think?

Karolina Kurkova and Uma Thurman in Chanel Haute Couture at the 2011 amfAR Gala

Uma Thurman and Karolina Kurkova wore Chanel Haute Couture to the 2011 amfAR Gala. Both dresses are lovely yet very different. Kurkova’s white mini dress is extravagantly adorned with strands of pearls giving it a look of opulence.  Thurman’s grey gown was a sleek, simple mermaid gown with flowers along the neckline.  Both dresses are gorgeous but I really love the simplicity and color of Thurman’s gown.  What do you think?

Uma Thurman in Chanel Couture at Cannes

Uma Thurman is a juror at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and she’s worn one gorgeous gown after another.  Her prettiest yet (ok, so I’m biased) is a white Chanel Couture gown she wore to the premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean On Strangers Tides.   She looks lovely in this gown – .  What do you think?

Karolina Kurkova also wore Chanel to the Pirates of the Caribbean On Strangers Tides premiere.  Her dress was short and black – quite the opposite of Uma’s gown – but still quite lovely!

Chanel on the Red Carpet at the 2011 Costume Institute Gala

There were many starlets that wore Chanel Beauté on the red carpet at the 2011 Costume Institute Gala – and there wore those that wore haute couture.  I’ve always wondered why more actresses didn’t wear Chanel couture on the red carpet and last night the ladies did not disappoint.  Chanel was worn by many including Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue and Chanel’s newest pretty young thing, Blake Lively.  I think my favorite Chanel ensembles were worn by Janelle Monae and Frida Pinto.  My lease favorite was worn by Kirsten Dunst.  I’m sure up close the dress is spectacular but it looked a little frumpy on Ms. Dunst.  What do you think? Which dress was your favorite?

Chanel Beauté at the 2011 Costume Institute Gala

The fashion event of the year – the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala was last night and many beauties walked the red carpet adorned by Chanel Beauté. Each of the lovelies had very different looks which goes to show how versatile Chanel Beauté can be. You can create any kind of look you want. Here’s a breakdown of who wore what…

BLAKE LIVELY / CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST VIVIAN BAKER

“Venus inspired, a sexy and naked look.”

How-To:
Vivian first used CHANEL Sublimage Essential Revitalizing Concentrate to prepare Blake’s skin. Next, she lightly swiped CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Désert across her face and added Guerlain Terracotta Concealer 02.

On the apples of her cheeks, Vivian used Stila Petunia Blush and lightly brushed CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Terre Ambre over her nose, forehead and jawline. She then layered Becca Mermaid Shimmering Eyeshadow and the gold shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Spices on the eye and finished with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. The look was completed with CHANEL Rouge Allure Gloss in Genie and CHANEL Glossimer in Pensée.

Saoirse Ronan Wears Chanel to Hanna NYC Premiere

saoirse ronan in chanel hanna nyc premiere
Saoirse Ronan, the star of Hanna, wore a dress from the Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2011 Paris-Byzance collection to the NYC premiere of her film. I think she wore it well. She seems really young though and I think the dress may be a bit old for her. It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong, I just would have loved to see her in something else. What do you think?

Michelle Williams Wears Chanel Couture to the Oscars


Last night at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams wore a pale grey Chanel Haute Couture gown. From afar the gown looked very simple and chic (and very on point on the minimalism trend) but upon closer examination you could see the exquisite details of the beading on her gown. Finally, someone wore Chanel Haute Couture on the red carpet! It was a lovely dress and she should definitely top a best dressed list.

I went through the runway images and couldn’t find this exact dress – it is of course couture and made for her – so it seems that Karl Lagerfeld may have tweaked an existing design. Of course I always have something to say and if I were choosing an Oscar gown I probably would have gone with a different look but it was definitely a step up from her daisys at the Golden Globes!

Chanel at the Indpendent Spirt Awards


Eva Mendes and Naomi Watts walked the grey carpet at the Independent Spirit Awards in Chanel dresses. A much lower-key event than the Oscars, the ladies opted for more casual looks but still looked lovely.
