Karl Lagerfeld’s Wedding Dress Suggestion for Kate Middleton

WWD asked many designers to submit a sketch of what they think princess-to-be Kate Middleton should wear for her royal wedding to Prince William.  Karl Lagerfeld submitted a sketch for Chanel and he suggested a “Victorian wedding dress, with a twist — high boots and open in the front.”  Though she’s rumored to have already selected a British designer Bruce Oldfield, we won’t know until the actual day of the wedding.

Chanel Beauté at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Last night was the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards Ceremony and the Chanel office has shared some of the celebrity makeup tips – straight from the Chanel makeup artists. Check out details and info on products and how to get the look below.

ANNE HATHAWAY / Makeup Artist Kate Lee

Beauty Inspiration:
“Anne wore a nude rose sequin gown. The dress featured a strong shoulder, so I wanted to make sure the make up was approachable and feminine to allow the dress its full attention.”

Beauty Tip:
“I used CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate to add an intense boost of hydration to the skin. Next I used Nars Oil free pro prime to help the make up to stay put. The foundation was CHANEL Vitalumiere Fluid Makeup, I love its dewy finish. I used Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder in Medium to pop Annie’s cheekbones. On the eyes, I used CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Sand, which is like a toasty rose gold. In the socket I added depth by adding a little taupe shadow. I curled the lashes, applied one soft coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir, my go-to for all award shows! Her lips were prepped with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Lip Care, then blotted and given a coat of CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Mademoiselle, and then topped with CHANEL Coco Shine in Bel Ami which gave the rose a violet hue. (Available in April). I tucked the lip color plus the CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder compact inside her purse, and off she went!”

Chanel Ephemeral Boutique at “Chalet de Pierre” in Courchevel

Chanel says “ephemeral boutique”, we say “pop-up shop” – it sounds so much nicer the Chanel way, non?  In any case, the latest temporary Chanel outpost is in Courchevel, a ski resort in the French Alps.  The boutique takes cues from its alpine environment and is mixed in with Chanel signatures.  The minimalist design with industrial materials is the perfect backdrop to highlight the most recent Chanel collections.  I couldn’t think of anything I’d like to do more than visit this boutique Après-ski!

More images of the boutique on Chanel News.

Mila Kunis in Chanel Beauté

Mila Kunis is all grown up.  I remember thinking she was so pretty as Jackie on That ’70s Show and it’s nice to see her as a young woman with a great career ahead of her.  The Black Swan co-star was at the People’s Choice Awards in Chanel Beauté.

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin worked with Mila Kunis at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday, January 5th. Here’s how Rachel go Mila’s smoky, sophisticated red carpet look…

I wanted Mila’s makeup to be sophisticated and sultry like the soft lines and colour of her dress. I accentuated her incredible eyes with a very soft earth-tone smoky eye. I started by blending CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Winter Nights, and finishing it with CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Torrent, a khaki shimmer, on her upper eyelid. I blended a smoky quartz pencil along the inner bottom eye for a bit more intensity.  I kept the rest of her face very understated with soft peach cream blush, and a flesh toned gloss, CHANEL Rouge Allure Gloss in Insouciance.

I love the look of neutral lips and I think I may have to get Insouciance as my new go-to lipgloss.

Hello Kitty and Chanel Manicure

This manicure has taken two of my favorite things – Hello Kitty and Chanel – and put them on nails.  I saw these nails on Etsy.com and they’re created by Pui Lu, a manicurist in Malaysia, and she sells them on her Deco5444 Etsy Shop.  They are adorable.  If I still wore acrylics I think I this would be my signature manicure.

Window World by Karl Lagerfeld – The Short Film

After a controversial short film for the Paris-Shanghai collection, Karl Lagerfeld skipped doing a fashion film for the Paris-Byzance collection. I guess Lagerfeld couldn’t keep himself from shooting a short film though and what we have now is the release of Window World, Uncle Karl’s latest fashion film for Chanel.

Window World features Magdalena Frackowiak, Barbara Dvorakova and Baptiste Giabiconi as mannequins in a store window with music fit for a suspense movie in the background. If Mannequin and Psycho had a baby it would be Window World. Not Karl’s best work but entertaining nonetheless.

Green With Envy! Nicole Richie and her Vintage Chanel Bag Collection


Nicole Richie is Lucky Magazine‘s February cover girl which hits newsstands on January 11th.  In it she dishes about her vintage Chanel bags…when asked how many vintage bags she had she said:  “That’s not a fair question! Okay, 30, but I stole a lot of them from my mom!…I’m a huge collector of vintage Chanel bags. My mom has given me a lot of the ones she had in the ’70s.”

I’m so jealous!! I would love to see the whole collection!
