Karl Lagerfeld, Riccardo Tisci and ….. Kim Kardashian? Ugh. Yes, you read correctly. An eight-month pregnant Kim Kardashian had the honor of being photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for the upcoming issue of CR Fashion Book. Take a look at the video below for a sneak peek — epic music, and all…

Lisa Eldridge shows us how to apply the new Chanel Rouge Allure Moiré collection – as always, she looks fabulous and makes it look so easy.
“Inside Chanel”, the video series that gives us “inside” information about Chanel myths such as Chanel Nº5, Marilyn Monroe and Chanel Nº5, Coco and the brand, Chanel and the Diamond and the Chanel Jacket — now are bringing us a five part series on the ultimate Chanel myth — the myth of Coco Chanel. Inside Chanel will take us from Gabrielle Chanel’s days as a young orphan, to the present with Karl Lagerfeld executing her vision. As each video is uploaded, I will share with you. For now, here’s a teaser…
Today is Karl Lagerfeld’s birthday and we wish him a wonderful day, with many more birthdays to come!

In a matter of days, the Chanel Rouge Allure Moiré Collection will be released. The new collection features nail and lip colors inspired by the opulence of precious fabrics and ribbons, and is translated into an assortment of dazzling lip and nail shades. The “moiré” aspect refers to a mother-of-pearl effect that enhances luminosity — which may explain the pearl effects of Le Vernis.
Here are some details from the collection:
Rouge Allure (Luminous Intense Lip Colour) – $34.00
Indécise – Shimmering Pink Beige
Étonnante – Bright Pearly Peach
Surprenante – Sparkling Fuschia
Impulsive – Bright Shimmering Pink Red (Limited Edition)
Audacieuse – Shimmering Pink Red (Limited Edition)
Énigmatique – Shimmering Brown Red
Ambigüe – Pearlescent Berry
Farouche – Shimmering Chocolate Brown
Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (Pure Shine Intense Colour Long Wear Lip Gloss) – $34.00
Réflexion – Shimmering Pink
Controversy – Brown Plum
Le Crayon Lèvres (Precision Lip Definer) – $29.00
Rose Poudré – Muted Rose (Limited Edition)
Rose Ardent – Bright Pink (Limited Edition)
Aqua Crayon (Lip Colour Stick) – $26.00
Vivid Rose – Bright Pink
Red Brown – Red Brown
Le Vernis (Nail Colour) – $27.00
Rose Moiré – Light Pearly Rose
Rouge Moiré – Pearly Red
This looks like a lovely collection, and I’m especially curious to see how the deeper, richer shades will look. They’ll be the perfect accompaniment to Fall.
Chanel just released the video for its Rouge Allure Moiré Collection, which is inspired by the opulence of precious fabrics. Here we see a preview of the lip collection. I like the edgey feel to the video — it’s a bit different than what we’ve come to expect from Chanel so I find it refreshing.

In what is becoming an endless ring of museum exhibition surrounding the mystery that is Coco Chanel, the London College of Fashion is hosting Coco Chanel: A New Portrait by Marion Pike, Paris 1967-71, a new exhibition that explores the life stories, friendships of Californian artist Marion Pike met Coco Chanel.
Curated by London College of Fashion Professor, and Chanel biographer, Amy de la Haye, all of the pieces in the exhibit have been lent by Jeffie Pike Durham, who has become her mother’s archivist.
If you are in London, or close to London, this is a definite must see. I wish I had a budget to travel the world to visit Chanel exhibitions, but alas, I don’t. If you go to the exhibit and can manage any (non-flash, of course) shots, I would love to see them — and even post them.
Date: 5th September- 16th November
Location: Fashion Space Gallery, London College of Fashion, 20 John Princes Street, W1G 0BJ.
Sunday & Public Holidays: Closed
