Rihanna Visits Chanel Apartment at 31 Rue Cambon

rihanna coco chanels apartment
Rihanna caused a bit of an internet sensation earlier this week when she posted images of herself in Coco Chanel’s apartment at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris on her Instagram account. From the looks of it, she got the full tour, sat where Coco Chanel sat and even got some Chanel gifts. Must be nice, huh? And yes, I’m totally jealous.

This trip has people speculating (AGAIN) that Rihanna will be featured in an upcoming Chanel campaign. No official word from Chanel so we’ll just have to wait and let the rumor mill run its course.

Chanel Resynchronizing Skincare

In an ideal world, your skin’s functions would perform in perfect balance. However, lack of sleep, travel, hectic schedules and the demands of daily life disrupt skin’s natural rhythms, causing signs of dullness, fatigue and stress. The complexion can appear tired, with an uneven texture.

To help restore skin to its optimal state, CHANEL created three products, designed to work together to resynchronize skin’s natural rhythms throughout the day, the night and the weekend. Achieve a perfectly balanced complexion—even-textured, smooth, supple and beautiful.

Back in April Chanel announced that Diane Kruger was the new face of Chanel Skincare – I wonder if she will be featured in the new Chanel Resynchronizing Skincare line ad campaign?

Here is a breakdown of each of the new products:

LE JOUR DE CHANEL Morning Reactivating Face Care Energizes skin so it can adapt to its environment throughout the day. Grasse Jasmine Extract invigorates the skin, while Salicylic Acid gently and gradually exfoliates to visibly minimize pores. Your complexion appears smooth and radiant, and ready to face the day.
Apply in the morning to the entire face and neck, before daily moisturizer. 1.7 oz. $85.00

LA NUIT DE CHANEL Evening Recharging Face Care Soothes and moisturizes skin to encourage nightly recovery. Frankincense Extract calms skin to prepare for the process of overnight repair, while Hyaluronic Acid helps restore skin’s plumpness and hydration. Your complexion appears supple upon awakening, with no signs of dullness. Apply in the evening. Follow with moisturizer, if needed. 1.7 oz. $85.00

LE WEEKEND DE CHANEL Weekly Renewing Face Care Enhances renewal and replenishes hydration to give skin a much-needed weekend break. Combined with relaxing Rose Water, a gentle Glycolic Acid Complex is gradually released for ideal exfoliation and lasting moisture. Skin is softer and more luminous for the week ahead.
During the weekend, apply morning and evening to the entire face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Use in place of your usual serum and moisturizer, and always follow with sun protection in the daytime. Apply two days in a row to intensify the benefits. 1.7 oz. $115.00

The Chanel Resynchronizing Skincare line is available now at select specialty stores and on Chanel.com.

Fashion Smurfs by AleXsandro Palombo

La La La La La La, La La La La La …

Sorry, everytime I think about the Smurfs that song pops into my head and I get carried away. My favorite fashion satirist AleXsandro Palombo has transformed Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld into Simpsons characters and now he’s in his blue period and transformed our favorite designers into Smurfs! Introducing Coco Chanel Smurf and Karl Lagerfeld Smurf…Karl Smurf has an uncanny resemblance to Papa Smurf, non?

If the Smurfs aren’t your thing then remember the time we saw Karl Lagerfeld My Little Pony, Coco Chanel Sponge Bob and Karl Lagerfeld Sponge Bob?

Video: LES VERNIS COULEURS CULTE DE CHANEL

Chanel has made a new Les Vernis video called Les Vernis Couleurs Culte de Chanel celebrating five timeless nail polish colors: Beige, Particuliére, Pirate, Rouge Noir and Black Satin. Chanel Le Vernis Rouge Noir is a limited edition color and all are now available on Chanel.com.

I love all these colors and have most of them – I’ll have to get Rouge Noir while it’s still in stock. What’s even better than seeing Chanel manicures is action is the soundtrack – New Order! After I saw the video I had the song stuck in my head and had to use all of my self-control to keep myself from dancing!

Video: Le Volume de Chanel

Ok, last video for today I promise! I have three months of links that I need to get through and get a giant link list up!

Chanel has released a video for Le Volume de Chanel mascara which offers instant volume and intense color. I’m so glad that it looks like they are just using her lashes – so many mascara commercials look like the models are wearing tons of fake eyelashes. Her eyes also remind me of fluttering butterflies – but that may be because I have the Chanel — on the brain.
