Versailles de CHANEL Cruise 2012/13 Makeup Collection Preview

Versailles de Chanel makeup collection

Images have started surfacing online of the lovely compact Chanel has produced for the Versailles de Chanel Cruise 2012/13 makeup collection. The compact features an embossed relief of an architectural detail from the Château de Versailles. Based on a post I did back in May, I was able to find some of the other products used to create the runway look that are already part of Chanel’s makeup collection namely Chanel Le Vernis in Tendresse, Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Pétale and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Evasion. A limited edition eye color was created for the collection but as far as I can tell, no images have been released – though we can tell that it will be a rose color. For the full list of products used by Peter Philips to achieve the runway look visit my previous post – Chanel Cruise 2012/13 Show Beauté.

Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg Update & Predictions

mary queen of scots coco chanel

The internet is abuzz with rumor of who is going to be at the upcoming Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg on December 4th. We know Karl’s muses and Les Fidèles de Chanel will probably be in attendance but most people are wondering whether Chanel’s latest brand ambassador – Brad Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie – will be in attendance. I have no word but we can only guess at this point.

What we do know is that Chanel has posted up twelve tents outside Linlithgow Palace. I’m thinking this area is the backstage/production areas as Chanel has stated that the show will take place within the walls of the palace. Some have surmised the show would take place in the Palace’s courtyard – in much the same way that the Cruise 2013 show was show in the gardens at Versailles. Scotland can be chilly this time of year and Chanel has been rumored to have commissioned a glass roof for the Palace courtyard.

And since we’re on the topic of rumor and speculation, I thought I would throw out some ideas of what we may see on December 4th. Coco Chanel’s connection to Scotland is through the Duke of Westminster with whom she had an affair in the 1920′s. She often borrowed from menswear and always found inspiration in her lovers’ closets. From the Duke of Westminster she found tweed, cashmere and bold jewels (in the form of lavish gifts). She also spent much of her time in Scotland outdoors and especially loved horseback riding and fishing. Based on Coco Chanel’s experiences in Scotland and the recent purchase of Barrie Knitwear, I presume we will see a lot of knitwear, as well as tweed and sporting influences accompanied by eye-catching jewelry and accessories we have to come to expect from a Chanel show.

Since the presentation will take place within the walls of Linlithgow Palace I think there is a chance that Karl Lagerfeld will be inspired by Mary Queen of Scots since the palace was her birthplace. As we saw in the Chanel Resort 2013 collection at Versailles, Karl Lagerfeld was influenced by the fashions of Marie Antoinette. I could see Karl Lagerfeld taking inspiration from Mary Queen of Scots – especially the large white collars she wore – as Coco Chanel herself was inspired by them. We’ll know for sure next week.

Chanel Cruise 2012-13 Ad Campaign With Cara & Saskia

Images of the Chanel Cruise 2012/13 ad campaign have surfaced and they bring to life the 18th century style re-imagined by Karl Lagerfeld as we saw earlier this year from his presentation in the gardens of Versailles. The campaign was shot by Karl Lagerfeld and features Saskia de Brauw and Cara Delevingne and the gilded backdrop, apparel and accessories bring to mind the decadence of Marie Antoinette.

More News on Chanel Coco Noir

gabrielle chanel quotes

Yesterday I posted about a new fragrance Chanel is releasing called Coco Noir, a flanker to Coco. I just received official word from Chanel and I’m excited to share this news with you!

For Coco Noir, Jacques Polge wanted to distinguish it from the florals and instead was inspired by what he calls “CHANEL Coromandel culture, what you see and feel in her apartment. The night vision of the ‘Orient that starts and ends in Venice’ imposed itself upon me and that is where I wanted to go.”

gabrielle chanel quotes

Chanel has created in Coco Noir what it calls a “nocturnal Baroque” – a celebration of Gabrielle Chanel’s use of black and Venice’s influence on her designs and her life. Chanel spent much time in Venice, most notably on her best friend’s honeymoon, where she went along to try to ease the sadness of mourning Boy Capel’s death. You may also remember that the Chanel Cruise 2009/10 collection was presented on Lido Beach in Venice.

Chanel so eloquently describes Coco Noir: “Coco Noir is the magnificent evocation of that woman in that city and all those women today who choose intensity over the bland norm; the detours of seduction over perfunctory exhibitionism, and true luxury over vulgarity.”

The notes of the fragrance are woody and musky at its base and are contrasted with bright, light notes up top. These complex contrasts create Coco Noir, “a distinctively CHANEL olfactory signature of desire and modesty, mystery and brilliance, in which baroque audacity and classic demeanour mingle and blend.”

Emma Stone Wears Chanel for LA “Spider-Man” Premiere

emma stone chanel los angeles spider man premiere

Emma Stone looked stunning in Chanel for the Los Angeles premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man. She wore a white short dress with burgundy flowers, look 68 from the Cruise Versailles collection. I have to admit, when I saw this on the runway I thought it would be hard to pull off with the subtle pannier widening the hips but Emma Stone not only pulls it off but makes it look gorgeous. I think she even looks better than the runway model – I’m especially loving the shoes she paired the dress with. Starlets take note, if you’re going to wear Chanel on the red carpet, this is how to do it.

Emma Stone’s makeup was done by Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin – see below how to get Emma’s look:
