Karl Lagerfeld sketched a “no smoking” sign but it’s not your typical sign. However, he was not making a statement about unhealthy habits, instead he was noting all the YSL references on many runways and he was stating that you would find a “smoking” – the french term for tuxedo – on his runway. Lagerfeld stated: “We don’t have to do smoking. Hedi Slimane really does it well.” WWD

Chanel “Bijoux de Diamants” 80th Anniversary NYC Dinner

CHANEL FINE JEWELRY celebrates its 80th anniversary of the “Bijoux de Diamants” collection created by Gabrielle Chanel

Nora Zehetner

Last night Chanel celebrated the 80th Anniversary of the “ Bijoux de Diamants” collection, originally created by Gabrielle Chanel in 1932 with the presentation of 80 new High-Jewelry pieces at a dinner reception in NYC. The guests included Michael Avedon, Jen Brill, Rose Byrne, Alexa Chung, Prince Pierre d’Arenberg, Linda Evangelista, Blake Lively, Anh Duong, Elle Fanning, Frederic Fekkai, Diane Kruger, Leigh Lezark, Nemo Librizzi, Caroline Sieber, Mario Sorrenti & Mary Frey and Lindsey Wixson.

Entitled “1932”, this exceptional collection clearly displays the full scope of the creativity and know-how of High Jewelry at CHANEL. These 80 pieces draw their inspiration from motifs and symbols that colored Mademoiselle Chanel’s imagination. Their magical constellations of white, yellow and black diamonds, blue and pink sapphires and pearls project us into the very heart of a cosmic fantasy within a dream-like and timeless universe.

Comets, stars, suns, fringes, fountains, ribbons and feathers all form the stylistic vocabulary of CHANEL FINE JEWELRY. Today, there’s a new addition, the lion – that great protector – Mademoiselle Chanel’s favorite animal and her star sign Leo – she was born on August 19th.

Inspired and visionary, in the same manner as the original “Bijoux de Diamants” collection created 80 years ago, these new jewelry pieces strongly express the unique creative spirit that characterizes High Jewelry at CHANEL. The excellence and mastery of technique that each piece demands, enables CHANEL FINE JEWELRY to advance and push forward its taste for perfection and ultimate luxury.

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.
