I wish I were in Paris pretty much every day of the year, but I especially want to be there this week!  From now through the 10th, Colette and Chanel have teamed up to provide one of the coolest shopping experiences ever.  Fortunately, Susie Bubble of Style Bubble checked out the shop and took some nice photos so I will be living vicariously through her… sigh.  All images are from StyleBubble.com – Merci!

I want everything pictured below.  I’m so sad I’m not there.  For more descriptions of all the prettiness and to hear about it from someone who’s actually seen it, please visit Style Bubble!  Oh, and the last image is of a new Coco tee by Dear Dana that Colette recently added to their webstore – I like it but it’s a $100 t-shirt.  I’d rather put that money toward the Coco doll!!  If anyone knows if that doll is for sale, and if so for how much and how to get one please let me know!!

Will Blake Lively Attend the Chanel Show?

Word on the web is that Blake Lively thinks it’s tacky when celebs sit front row at fashion shows – even though she’s done it in the past.  The web is abuzz with rumors that she won’t be at the Chanel Fall/Winter 2011 show, but instead will be hosting a dinner in Paris since Lively is the face of the Chanel’s new Mademoiselle handbag line.  We’ll know for sure what happens on the 8th I suppose!

Chanel & Colette Pop Up Shop Update

For the next 10 days, Colette and Chanel teamed up to give consumers a unique shopping experience. A few of the special products that Colette commissioned are online in their web shop – but most sold out within hours of being put up. It doesn’t look like actual Chanel pieces will be online including a Colette blue Mademoiselle purse and camellias in black, white and Colette blue. I wish I could be there for this – if you can get to Paris then this is a must see!

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.

Natalie Portman for Miss Dior Cherie

I’ve been saying it for about three years now that I thought Natalie Portman SHOULD be the face of a Chanel fragrance.  She’s gorgeous, intelligent, talented and elegant – all things that embody Chanel.  I always thought she should have been selected over Keira Knightley – don’t get me wrong, Keira is gorgeous – I just don’t think she represents Chanel the way someone like Natalie Portman could.

Well, Chanel slept on Natalie Portman and Dior scooped her up as the new face of Miss Dior Cherie.  Directed by Sofia Coppola, the ad portrays Portman as an ingénue set to the tune of Je t’aime… moi non plus performed by Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg.

This isn’t Sofia Coppola’s first ad for Dior, she did the first Miss Dior Cherie ad a few years back. I think she’s a great choice for directing the ads because she always nails that feminine je ne sais quoi paired with a great soundtrack and great style.

Keira Knightley’s new ad for Coco Mademoiselle should be coming out soon – we saw images of the crew shooting it a few months back. I wonder how it will compare to the new Miss Dior Cherie ad since they are both targeting a younger audience…

Lindsay Lohan Wears Chanel to Court

I have to say that I find it totally annoying that Lindsay Lohan is in the news everyday for her missteps with the law and I usually don’t pay much attention – except when she’s wearing Chanel. When I saw footage of Lindsey stepping out in this outfit I loved it immediately. When I heard the pants and sweater were Chanel then it came as no surprise as the ensemble is so chic, yet very sexy. I would wear this, or a variation of this outfit everyday and be a very happy girl.  Lindsay paired the outfit with YSL pumps and a Lanvin clutch.
