Seeing what goes down the runway is very easy to access these days – but it’s a rare look we get into the inner workings of the backstage scene of an haute couture show in Paris. Chanel sent images by Benoit Peverelli to give us an inside look at the magic – enjoy!

Chanel 2012-13 Fall Winter Haute Couture Show Makeup by Peter Philips

Chanel 2012 2013 Fall Winter Haute Couture Show Makeup by Peter Philips

The makeup at the Chanel 2012 2013 Fall Winter Haute Couture Show was beautiful as always but the nail art stole the show.  The interweb is abuzz with Chanel’s foray into nail art.  The two colors featured are May (Spring 2012) and Silver – a limited edition color from Spring 2007.  Don’t fret, silver is a pretty easy color to come by these days so you can replicate the manicure pretty easily if you want to.

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

Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/13 Runway Collection Review

Chanel Haute Couture Fall Winter 2012 2013

Last week Chanel presented its Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/13 collection entitled “New Vintage.” The “New Vintage” invitation featured an illustration by Karl Lagerfeld of a young Coco Chanel. Based on the invitation I thought I would see references from the early designs of Coco Chanel. Instead, Karl gave us a collection of instant classics that took us through the decades.

The most obvious reference was the 1940s with all of the models sporting snoods in their hair. It was actually an interesting presentation because Coco Chanel actually didn’t design during the 1940s – she closed her atelier in 1939 at the beginning of WWII. In many ways, this collection was Karl Lagerfeld’s interpretation of what her designs may have looked like had she designed during that time.

Though the 1940s references were very prevalent in the shapes such as trousers and the Old Hollywood glamorous dresses, I also saw hints of the 1960s and 1970s. The boxy swing dresses and coats reminded me of the 1960s and the blouses, tunics and long skirts reminded me of the 1970s.

The collection was muted in black, ivory and grey with pops of mauve and pink to lighten things up. I liked the unexpected hit of pastel for fall/winter. The gowns were lovely with intricate floral details and I would love to see some of these dresses on a red carpet. Please view the collection for yourself below – more to come on accessories and beauty!

Chanel’s Peter Philips Presents: Mirror, Mirror

chanel miroir miroir peter philips rouge allure lipstick
Peter Philips has been creating some interesting short films like “Here Comes the Beauty Pack”, “Shade Parade“, “A Polished Look” and “Mani-Morphosis” that showcase the beauty products he creates for Chanel in unique ways.  His latest film Miroir, Miroir (Mirror, Mirror) highlights the new collection of Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick out in September 2012; the collection features sixteen new colors ranging from shades of orange, red and fuchsia.

Taking inspiration from a mirror-embellished coat Karl Lagerfeld designed for the Métiers d’Art Paris-Bombay pre-fall collection, Peter Philips painstakingly glued pieces of mirror on model Inguna Butane’s face for over three-hours. Peter Philips stated: “I’m a huge fan of visual communication…a sparkle is more than just one frozen moment. It’s a chain of images, because it moves, like a firework. And that’s something that you can only see in film or in real life.”

First Look: Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ad Campaign

First Look Chanel Fall-Winter 2012 2013 Ad CampaignWord on the interweb is that photos of the Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ad Campaign have been leaked.  The images, presumably shot by Karl Lagerfeld, feature models sporting sever bobs amidst a white backdrop and Chanel written across the bottom of the page.  The only way to see if the rumors are true is to wait until the magazines come out.

Chanails! Chanel Nails from the Fall-Winter 2012/13 Haute Couture Show

chanel nails haute couture fall winter 2012 2013 One of the things many people are excited to see during Chanel shows are a glimpse of the nails.  For the Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/13 show Chanel stepped it up and gave us some nail art instead of a one-color manicure.  The two colors look like silver and pink but on the runway the pink looked a bit like coral.  I’m not sure if it was a different color or the same color under different lighting.  I’ll let you know as soon as I have some more info but I thought I’d give you a first look. Enjoy!
