Keira Knightley in Chanel Beauté

Keira Knightley, star of the upcoming COCO MADEMOISELLE advertising campaign sequel directed by Joe Wright, wore CHANEL makeup at the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear Show in Paris on Tuesday, October 5th, 2010.

Keira looked gorgeous and I love her new bob. I wonder if it was inspired by Coco? Keira’s look was created using the following products – it won’t make us look like her but it will get us as close as we can:

Face: VITALUMIÈRE AQUA Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rosé – Tendre (available March 2011)
JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in Pink Explosion

Eyes: LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow in Tentation Cuivré
MASCARA INIMITABLE WATERPROOF in Noir

Lips: ROUGE COCO Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Chintz

Life Imitating Art: Chanel Heist!

Last year, Karl Lagerfeld created Vol de Jour, a short film starring Lara Stone and Baptiste Giabiconi going from Chanel boutique to Chanel boutique, and stealing from each shop. If you haven’t seen the video you can see it here…

Earlier this week, 45 bags were stolen from the Chanel Boutique in Boston on Newbury Street. The bags were valued at an approximate total of $100,000! I wonder if they were inspired by Vol de Jour! Probably not, but it’s interesting how life can imitate art – even when it’s not intentional…

Les Tentations De Chanel Holiday 2010 Makeup Collection


Chanel‘s holiday 2010 makeup collection created by Peter Philips, Les Tentations de Chanel, is hitting makeup counters this month. Meaning “the temptations” the collection will definitely entice you – and make you look enticing – just in time for the holiday season. Composed of rich browns and pinks, the collection is warm and universally flattering – think smoldering eyes and flushed lips and cheeks. The colors are all very pretty though I don’t foresee the new Le Vernis color, Pulsion, creating the stir that Jade and Paradoxal have in the past.

Read on for details on the collection from Chanel…

LES TENTATIONS DE CHANEL offers a sumptuous collection of tempting chocolates and fuchsias for the holiday season. Warm, vibrant tones punctuated with pops of festive color create effects that are at once charming and sensuous.

LES 4 OMBRES QUADRA EYE SHADOW

Tentation Cuivré, a special-edition shadow quartet from Europe, brings dramatic sparkle and new seduction to the eyes. Rich brown and copper shades are tempered with soft, flirty pink and tender beige tones. $56.00

OMBRES D’EAU FLUID IRIDESCENT EYESHADOW

Water-light fluid formula glides on for a long-lasting veil of shimmering color, now in Splash, a soft, smoky pewter. $32.00

LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES GLOSSIMER

Imbued with scintillating shimmer and intense shine, new holiday shades of LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES Glossimer — Charming, a delicate pink; Pleasing, a rich bronze; and Pink Pulsion, a dramatic fuchsia — lend warm, brilliant color to lips. $27.00

ROUGE COCO HYDRATING CRÈME LIP COLOUR

This instant modern classic lip color arrives in two new shades: Magnolia, a soft pink, and Patchouli, a subtle copper. $30.00

LES TISSAGES DE CHANEL BLUSH DUO TWEED EFFECT

Fuchsia has never looked so feminine, swept softly over cheeks. Complementing all skin tones: Tweed Fuchsia, the ideal finish to a holiday-perfect look. $45.00

LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR

Nails polished with LE VERNIS Nail Colour in new Pulsion, a brilliant shock of deep pink, echo the sumptuous tone of the holidays. $23.00

Les Exclusifs de Chanel Petits Flacons

One of my favorite Chanel scents (and the one that is my current daily scent) is Beige, part of Les Exclusifs de Chanel collection.  If you’ve seen this collection exclusively at Chanel Boutiques (hence the name) then you know the size of these bottle is no joke.  When I asked why the bottles were so big, the sales person noted that these scents were very light and made to be sprayed liberally – all over.

While the bottles are large enough to douse yourself lavishly with your favorite scent, they are not very practical to take with you on romantic getaways.  Well, the Chanel gods have answered my prayers!  Now four of Les Exclusifs – Beige, Sycamore, Eau de Cologne and Coromandel – are available in 2.5 fluid ounce petits flacons (the regular size is a whopping 6.8 fluid ounces).  The one catch is that you get less than half the scent for more than half the price.  It doesn’t make much economic sense but it is Chanel after all.  You can buy the petits flacons at Chanel boutiques and online at Chanel.com.

Chanel Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear Show Invite

In 2 short days Chanel will unveil its Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection and I can’t wait to see it!  Chanel unveiled an image of their show invitation (pictured above) and from the looks of it, maybe Chanel’s iconic Camellia is the inspiration for the collection.  Since it’s a spring collection, floral is always “on trend” so it’s a possibility.  From the looks of the invite, it seems that Uncle Karl is still liking the raw street art feel that imbued his Chanel Soho Boutique reopening.  All I can do is speculate – we’ll see in 2 days!
