Lisa Eldridge Video: Printemps Précieux de CHANEL

lisa eldridge chanel spring 2013
Here’s the newest Lisa Eldridge video showing us how to apply Chanel’s Spring 2013 makeup collection Printemps Précieux de CHANEL. As always, she makes it looks so easy and effortless. What a pretty look. I would never think to pair the lip and nail color she chose but they really work well together. What do you think? What products from this collection are you buying?

New Culture Chanel Exhibit In Guangzhou, China

culture chanel exhibit

In 2011 Chanel opened a Culture Chanel exhibit in China at Shanghai’s MOCA. The exhibit took a biographical approach and looked at events in Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s life and how they influenced her life’s works. On Wednesday, Chanel is opening the second installment of the Culture Chanel exhibit at the Guangzhou Opera House.

GUANGZHOU opera house culture chanel

The Guangzhou Opera House was designed by Zaha Hadid, who if you remember, also designed the Chanel Mobile Art Pavillion. The decision of venue is an indication of the direction of the exhibit which Chanel explains as an exploration of “the behaviours and attitudes that set this style in motion and that the Chanel designers apply today, giving Chanel a timeless contemporary quality.”

Culture Chanel Exhibit

Coco Chanel’s fearlessness and independence “allowed women to breathe, move, love, dream, and invent their life as a woman.” As such, the exhibit is split up into these categories to delve into the world of Coco Chanel’s creative process, and her relationships with avant garde artists of the time including Jean Cocteau, Amadeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Raymond Radiguet, and Pierre Reverdy.

Culture Chanel Exhibit

Art Director Jean-Louis Froment, curator of the Culture Chanel exhibit stated: “It is a unique history that intertwines and may merge with history as a whole. It is the creation of a language that goes from Gabrielle Chanel’s timeline to the line of creations that the brand has to offer today.”

Culture Chanel Exhibit

Today Chanel released a video of the behind-the-scenes preview of the Culture Chanel exhibit. In the video, we see the hanging of “Le Train Bleu” by Pablo Picasso. “Le Train Bleu” was a ballet by the Ballets Russes where Pablo Picasso painted the backdrop and Coco Chanel designed the costumes. This was but one example of Coco Chanel’s collaboration with the leading thinkers and artists of her time.

Chanel Beauté at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Chanel not only was present at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards in the way of Haute Couture but Chanel Beauté cosmetics graced the lovely faces of Anne Hathaway, Sienna Miller, Jodie Foster, Naomi Watts, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer and Alicia Vikander. See the images below for beauty tips and how to get the looks from the Chanel celebrity makeup artists Rachel Goodwin, Vanessa Scali, Pati Dubroff, Jordan B. Long and Kate Lee.

Anne Hathaway Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee

INSPIRATION: Annie wore an ice-white beaded gown by CHANEL with CHANEL Fine Jewelry! The look was elegant, but still youthful and light. I felt that the makeup should mirror this, and wanted Annie to appear as if lit from within, so I concentrated on making the complexion as tactile as possible, and added a dash of blue pink to the lips as a focal point.
SKINCARE: CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum followed by CHANEL Base Lumière Illuminating Makeup Base.
FOUNDATION:    I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to keep the skin looking radiant. I added a small amount of CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long- Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 only where needed.
BLUSH: On the cheekbones, I used a light sweeping touch of Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder to illuminate the bone structure; I also followed this along the clavicle and over the shoulder blades. On the apple of the cheek, I used a pale peach blush to contrast the lip color.
EYES:    I defined Annie’s eye socket with CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Fauve which is a delicious grey/lilac shade. I ran the color along the base of the lower lashes to finish the look.
MASCARA: Lashes were curled and given a coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. I then added a selection of lashes for a customized shape.
LIPS: Lips were CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Sedusicante, the perfect pink for a perfect pout.

Anne Hathaway Nails by Celebrity Manicurist Alicia Torello

INSPIRATION: We started with one idea based off the dress and then it just kept evolving. Anne usually knows what she wants and has fantastic taste.

COLORS: CHANELLeVernisNailColourinPearlDrop.

RED CARPET NAIL TRICK: A great top coat for super shine. Lots of lotion and cuticle oil, hydration is the most important thing!

Sienna Miller Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff

INSPIRATION: I wanted the makeup to look very fresh, young and effortless. The dress has a very airy floral vibe so the makeup feels like a summer day.

SKINCARE: CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Texture Suprême and CHANEL Base Lumière Illuminating Makeup Base to give skin a luminous glow.

FOUNDATION: CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Beige 40. I used Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base to contour the cheekbones and to add a soft summer bronzy glow.

EYES: I first used a rich navy blue pencil, CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Marine, at the deepest base of lashes. I then smudged a shimmering shade, CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Graphite, along the lash line. To set the liner, I used CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Furtif. I then added a dash of CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Riviere, a soft shimmering seafoam green on the center of lid. Then a soft touch of CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme on the inner corner of eyes for a pop of shimmering white light.

MASCARA: I used a hefty dose of Le Volume de Chanel in Noir on the top lashes only.

LIPS: I created a soft and sweet petal pink using CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Gracile.

Naomi Watts Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff

Naomi Watts Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff

INSPIRATION: Naomi is one of those actresses who evoke a timeless, classic elegance. I kept thinking Carole Lombard and the polish of the 30′s screen sirens. She was sexy and sultry, and that is how I see Naomi.

SKINCARE: Skin was prepped with Le Blanc De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base.

FOUNDATION: CHANEL Vitalumière Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in 20 Clair and CHANEL Lift Lumière Smoothing and Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer in 20 Rose Lumière around the eye area.
BLUSH: A very soft swipe of CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Petale high on the apples of the cheeks for a very romantic feel. On the very tops of cheekbones, I applied a soft swipe of Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder to create a pearl-like finish.

EYES: I defined the upper and lower lashline and inner rims with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Gris. The eye socket and lash lines were contoured with the deep plum tone from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Raffinement. I left the center open to add a flash of pewter shine with CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadow in Epatant. I then added a bit more flash at the upper and lower center lash lines with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Rose Platine.

MASCARA: A coat of mascara upper lash with Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir and then a bordeaux coat of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir on the lower lashes.

LIPS: I applied CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Determinee, a plum tone with a lip brush and then pressed the color into the lip with my finger to make it look stained and softened.

Jodie Foster Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin

Jodie Foster Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin

INSPIRATION: Jodie’s Golden Globes make up was meant to be sultry and super glamorous. When I saw the incredible structure of her navy metallic gown I knew Gunmetal eyes and soft peach lips and cheeks would be the perfect compliment. She was receiving the prestigious Cecil B De Mille Life Time Achievement Award and I wanted her to feel as beautiful as possible for such a big moment.

SKINCARE: I began by prepping her skin with CHANEL Sublimage L’Essence Essential Revitalizing Concentrate and let it absorb in to the skin.

FOUNDATION: I applied a thin layer of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 with a foundation brush buffing off any excess. I sculpted her cheeks with Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing powder in Sable Beige.

EYES: I traced her lash line with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Marine, blending until there was a soft diffused line. I went over the navy liner with CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Black Star using an angled brush blending upward onto her crease and lids creating an intense smoky effect.

MASCARA: I coated her lashes with Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir and added a few individual lashes at the ends for even more amped up lashes.

LIPS: Her lips were a combination of CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Natural and CHANEL Rouge Allure Pure Shine Intense Colour Long Wear Lip Gloss in Mervielle.

Emily Mortimer Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin

Emily Mortimer Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin

INSPIRATION: I wanted Emily’s makeup to have a laid back, sexy feel. I was inspired by chic French girls like Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon who always seem to strike that perfect balance and never look too done.

FOUNDATION: I created soft matte skin with CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Beige 10.

EYES: The main focus of the look was her eyes so I began by lining her lash line with CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Noir- Ivoire using just the black shadow for a smoky effect. I softened the black by placing a white shimmering cream shadow on the inner eye and on to her eyelid creating a soft grey shimmer.

MASCARA: I used two coats of Le Volume de Chanel mascara in Noir on her lashes.

LIPS: On her lips, I used CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Fantasque, a soft nude that would add just enough color for her lips not to disappear and then finished by dabbing a bit on her cheeks.

Michelle Dockery Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Jordan B. Long

Michelle Dockery Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Jordan B. Long

INSPIRATION: Modern and sexy with Old Hollywood Glamour. Michelle is in period 60 percent of the time so to try something new we wanted to do a smoky eye, some high fashion and some tousled hair to highlight her new cut.

SKINCARE: I started with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum and followed with Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base all over the face with a foundation brush.

FOUNDATION: I lightly stippled CHANEL Vitalumière Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Michele’s skin is so flawless – so we love to let that show through.

BLUSH: After a light dusting of translucent powder, I applied CHANEL Powder Blush in Frivole to the apples o her cheeks. Michelle loves her skin to show through and I love to use highlighters and to keep her complexion dewy, so the Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder was perfect on her cheekbones, down her nose and above her lip and her chin for brightening.

EYES: We wanted to do a smoky eye. Michelle’s character in Downton Abbey wears next to nothing, so we decided early on to go for it. Since she’s wearing white and gold with burgundy shoes we wanted something warm. I used CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Raffinement. I applied the dark burgundy brown all over the lid. Then blending up towards the browbone, but leaving some space. I then added CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Apparence at the center, blending the colors together. I love burgundy and gold. Michelle has a lot of reddish tones in the color of her eyes so we wanted to highlight that. We finished with a very fine line on upper lash line of CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Noir Intense.

MASCARA: I used three coats of Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir. We also added extra coats on Michelle’s extra-long gorgeous lower lashes for extreme fluttery lashes.

LIPS: We wanted a very natural, nudish glossy lip. Michelle has a lot of pigment in her lips naturally, so against her pale gorgeous milky skin doing too nude doesn’t work, so we used a lipstick with a slight color: CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Sedusicante with no liner and then with a gold gloss, CHANEL Rouge Allure Pure Shine Intense Colour Long Wear Lip Gloss in Attirance.

Alicia Vikander Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Vanessa Scali

Alicia Vikander Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Vanessa Scali

INSPIRATION: Alicia wore a gorgeous CHANEL gown. I was inspired by her natural beauty and liked the contrast of an effortless, fresh face against her textured, intricate gown.

SKINCARE: CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum followed by CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid and CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Yeux. This combination prepares the skin with penetrating hydration and leaves a clean finish on the skin.

FOUNDATION: I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 sparingly. Alicia has gorgeous skin so there is no need to hide it under foundation.
BLUSH: CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Initiale concentrated on the apples of the cheeks blending outward and upward toward the cheekbones. For a touch of shimmer, I used Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder high on the cheekbones and brow bones.

EYES: Using CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Rives, I blended the pale gold shade from lash line to just past the natural crease. To lengthen and add depth, I used the mid-brown shade and concentrated on the outer corners of the eye and extended past the natural eye line. I blended a touch of CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme on the inner corner and into the middle of the lid. This pops a little light on this area and opens the eyes.

EYELINER: To define and elongate the lash line, I lined her eyes (upper lid only) with CHANEL Precision Eyeliner in Brun Intense. I used the tip of the CHANEL Contour Shadow Brush #14 to smudge it into the lash line. This gives you the definition in a soft, subtle way.

MASCARA: A few generous coats of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. LIPS: CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Bel-Ami gave her lips a beautiful, just-bitten look.

Anne Hathaway looked gorgeous in Chanel Haute Couture at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards Ceremony.  The beaded two-piece white ensemble was simple and chic in true Chanel form.  There are rumors that she is pregnant, and if she is, then the two piece set is very forgiving and hides a lot.  Definitely one of the best dressed of the night!

She wore a white beaded strapless dress, look 63, from the Spring Summer 2009 Haute Couture Collection.

Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Texas for Pre-Fall 2014!

wwd ceo summit karl lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfled was interviewed as part of the WWD CEO Summit – a definite must read, it’s a great interview about Karl Lagerfeld’s career and approach. Click the link to read: Karl Lagerfeld WWD CEO Summit interview.

coco chanel stanley marcus

Coco Chanel with Stanley Marcus in Texas.

In the interview he passingly mentions that this year he will be heading to Texas for Métiers d’Art Pre-Fall 2014 Chanel shows! From the way it reads I think it will be for the Métiers d’Art collection. He stated:

When you have a show with only a girl coming out of the door, crossing a runway, it’s OK for fashion freaks but the public get bored very quickly. There has to be some magical surrounding. That’s why I went to Scotland to this castle where Mary Stuart was born, and it was quite a magical moment. To do the opposite, next time, in a year, I will go to Dallas. You know why? First of all, I love Texas. I love Texans. There’s another reason. When Chanel reopened, the French press was beyond nasty. The only press that understood it immediately was the American press, and Neiman Marcus gave her the Oscar for her collection, so I think it’s a nice thing to go there.

coco chanel stanley marcus

Stanley Marcus presents Coco Chanel with the Neiman-Marcus fashion award for 1957.

Karl Lagerfeld mentions the hostility Coco Chanel’s re-launch collections were received with in the French press but the Americans loved her. Her popularity in the U.S. made it possible for her to continue her comeback – as well as pieces that we now consider signatures like the tweed suit, 2.55 bag and toe-cap shoes.

The Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Texas for Pre-Fall 2014 is going to be crazy – take the intricacy of a Métiers d’Art collection and combine that with the “bigger is better” attitude of Texas and we’ve got the makings of a grand ol’ collection y’all.

Chanel Spring 2013 Campaign

Chanel Spring 2013 Ad Campaign

Images of Chanel’s new spring 2013 ad campaign have surfaced online and I have them here for you to check out. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld and featuring models Stella Tennant, Ondria Hardin, Yumi Lambert the campaign has a bit of a Japanese minimalist influence suggested by the tatami mats on the floor and the furnishings, especially the low table. The campaign stirred a bit of controversy when it was first shot because of the employment of Ondria Hardin whose age is in question at the time the campaign was photographed (she was 15 or 16). To everyone’s surprise, the campaign also features another sixteen-year old, Yumi Lambert.

The campaign is nice and I think it’s a success because I can’t wait for this collection to come out!!

What do you think of the controversy surrounding the models’ age? It’s based on an industry guideline but her parents are ok with her working. What’s your opinion on this? Share your thoughts in the forum!!
