We’ve seen the Chanel cupcakes, cookies, french fries and lollipops but Tricia Clarke-Stone, the “glam foodie” of Sip, Chat, Chow is taking things to a whole new level. She brings couture to some of our favorite sweet treats. She tends to like Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Fendi in addition to Chanel, but as you know, my only concern is Chanel – check out these pics of couture cuisine!

In the film A Monster in Paris directed by Bibo Bergeron, Vanessa Paradis is the voice of Lucile. In the video for “La Seine”, a song from the original soundtrack, Vanessa Paradis wears a Chanel dress from the Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection. Check it out below…
Every season Chanel releases a sneaker and for Cruise 2011/12, Chanel has opted for a running sneaker silhouette. This particular silhouette looks like a model from the 1990s – Chanel seems to save its technological developments for its beauty and watch categories. It’s ok though because this sneaker is proof that putting double C’s on something automatically makes them better!
I took a much-needed few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving (and my birthday) but that didn’t stop Chanel or Karl Lagerfeld from making the news. Let’s play a little catch-up to see what happened in the Chanel world last week…
I’m not sure why everyone on the interweb is so surprised that Karl Lagerfeld makes a lot of money considering who he works for and the breadth of his projects – but he does, ok? WWD
Karl Lagerfeld will be donning a new hat - that of editor. In February 2012, “Lagerfeld will guest edit all Metro editions around the world. As part of the project, he will create a series of collectible sketches, illustrations and columns as well as choose the stories for the newspaper and give his notoriously provocative comments on the news of the day.” Metro
14 stars were chosen by 15 designers as their ‘muses’, and Chanel picked Yoon Seung Ah in Vogue magazine’s latest pictorial in the December issue. (Not sure which country’s edition of Vogue). AllKPop
Illustrator Megan Hess is exhibiting her work at the newly launched The Gallery in Victoria, Australia. Ragtrader
Back in July I posted about the pens and lighters that Karl Lagerfeld designed for S.T. Dupont – you can buy them now on the Colette webshop.
Blake Lively and Elizabeth Olsen looked gorgeous in Chanel makeup at the Chanel-sponsored MOMA Film Benefit in honor of Pedro Almodovar. Chanel celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin did Blake Lively’s makeup and Gita Bass did Elizabeth Olsen’s makeup.

I love Chanel Fine Jewelry – especially the pieces inspired by Coco Chanel’s favorite flower, the camellia. Chanel has dreamt up a sparkling, ethereal floral design that is a delicate embroidery of diamonds with gold that dresses the skin in a precious lace. Check out the video for the Chanel Fine Jewelry Camélia Brodé collection below…

Now through January 2, you can see “Gaga’s Workshop” – Barney’s New York has put its 5th floor and holiday windows in the hands of Lady Gaga. She stated: ““We tried to bridge the spirit of Madison Avenue with the spirit of downtown New York pop punk culture and create a space that had a range of prices — some very affordable gifts and some gifts that were more expensive.” On Monday night Lady Gaga wore a custom white Chanel gown designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The white tweed dress with black trim is accessorized with CHANEL pearls, camelias and bows. I LOVE this look – especially all of the camellias and pearls. Check out the pics below and Karl Lagerfeld’s sketch pictured above.

Chanel’s will reveal its upcoming Métiers d’Art collection on December 6, and word on the street is that the collection is inspired by India. The Paris-Bombay collection will be shown at the Galerie Courbe in the Grand Palais. I can’t wait to see this collection. The Métiers d’Art collections are always my favorite of the year because you see such lovely work from all of the maisons that Chanel purchased to keep the art of the crafts alive as part of Paraffection. The Métiers d’Art collections usually do a lovely job marrying influences. I’d be interested to see how the colors play out in this collection. Chanel is known for a very subdued palette and India is known for quite the opposite. Either way, I’m sure the collection will be heavily embellished and I’m especially interested in seeing the jewelry. Stay tuned!
I’m a relatively new mother and like all new mother’s I’m sleep deprived. That means that my old lifestyle of staying up late and going out or catching an episode of SNL is long-gone. So I will admit that I’m a few months late on this but it’s funny nonetheless. SNL did a parody of Chanel fragrance commercials with a perfume called “Red Flag”. It’s pretty funny – Chanel ads are lovely but you have to keep things in perspective and have a sense of humor about them, no?
When it comes to chocolate, I’m an equal opportunity chocolate lover. I have never been known to say “no” to chocolate – ever. So it’s only natural that I express my love and gratitude for friends in family with what I love – chocolate! Lindt Lindor Truffles are perfect for the holidays because they are each like individually wrapped little presents. They come in convenient gift size bags that are perfect for gifting – or hoarding. Here are top 5 ways to use Lindt Lindor Truffles during the holidays…
1. Stocking Stuffer – The Lindt Lindor Truffle is perfect as a stocking stuffer. It’s a sweet little surprise – you can either put some individual truffles in the stocking – or a whole bag!
2. Candy Dish -I like to color coordinate during the holidays – down to the candy in my candy dishes. Last year was black and white and this year I think I’m going with red. Lindt Lindor Truffles are perfect for color coordinating because of their vibrantly colored wrappers. You can go with a monochrome look or mix flavors. Oh, and chocolate in a candy dish is always a good thing in my book.
3. Thank You Gift -The holidays are a good time to thank all the people that help you out in your life like the mail man, school teacher, landscaper, etc. Nothing says “thank you” like chocolate! The Lindt Lindor Truffle bags are a perfect size and festive looking for gifting – all you need to do is add a bow.
4. Holiday Party Gift -During the holidays it’s inevitable you’ll be invited to a holiday party and it’s never ok to go to someone’s house without something. Sure, you could bring some booze but that’s boring and predictable. But chocolate? Always welcome!
5. For Moi! – By now this is obvious, but my favorite use for Lindt Lindor Truffles during the holidays if for my own pleasure!
Happy Holidays! May it be as sweet as chocolate truffles!
