Chanel Beauté at the 2012 Academy Awards

Another awards show has come and gone and once more I am in awe at the lack of Chanel couture (or RTW for that matter) on the red carpet.   Chanel Beauté however was on the red carpet and Chanel celebrity makeup and nail artists were on hand to make the leading ladies shine.  Here’s a break down of the products and techniques used…

MICHELLE WILLIAMS ~ MAKEUP BY CHANEL CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST ANGELA LEVIN

INSPIRATION
My inspiration was a flower! When I saw Michelle in her stunning dress, it made me think of a beautiful rose I have in my garden. Like that flower, she looked so gorgeous and delicate, so I decided to use an array of Spring hues!

PRODUCTS
Skincare: I began by hydrating her skin with a light layer of CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme ($390.00).

Eye Shadow: Next, I used CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes ($58.00), using half moon strokes on the lids to maintain a round, soft feeling. For an added pop of glamour, I placed a bit of CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Tigerlily ($28.50) on her lids.

Eye Liner: Under the eyes, I used the darkest color, the neutral deep brown with gold flecks shade, from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes ($58.00).

Eye Brows: CHANEL Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair ($29.00).

Foundation: To further enhance Michelle’s already gorgeous skin, I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Compact ($58.00 – Available March 19 on chanel.com) for a hydrated, flawless, revitalized and radiant look.

Blush: For the cheeks, I applied my favorite new cheek color, Exclusive Creation Blush Horizon de CHANEL ($58.00).

Highlighter: To accentuate the natural contours of Michelle’s face, I lightly added CHANEL Limited Edition Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Jasmin ($45.00) to her cheeks. I also added this to her shoulders for a slight highlight as well.

Mascara: To the top and bottom lashes, I applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir ($30.00).

Lipstick: For Michelle’s bright, purpley-pink lips, I mixed two CHANEL Rouge Coco Shades from CHANEL’s Spring collection: Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Paradis, a pink coral with Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Destineé, a spring plum (each $32.00).

INSPIRATION
Gorgeous in every way!!

PRODUCTS
Skincare: I started by applying a rich dose of CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme ($390.00) to a clean face and let it absorb into the face for about 15 minutes.

Foundation: On her eyes and forehead, I then used a light coat of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Compact ($58.00 – Available March 19 on chanel.com).

Blush: For the cheeks I wanted to create a fresh, youthful appearance so I applied Exclusive Creation Blush Horizon de CHANEL ($58.00).

Eye Shadow: On the eyes, I began by applying CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre in Émerveille ($36.00) to her lids lightly with my fingers. I followed by applying all colors from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Enigma ($58.00). I used the chocolate grey on the outer part of the lid, the violet grey on the eye crease, the pink under the brow bone and the deep plum to frame the eye across the lash lines.

Eye Liner: To further glamorize her eyes, I lined the upper lash line with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir ($28.00).

Mascara: CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir ($30.00).

Lipstick: I finished her look by applying a sumptuous amount of CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Mademoiselle ($32.00) topped with CHANEL Glossimer in Braise ($29.50).

GLENN CLOSE ~ MAKEUP BY CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST CATHY HIGHLAND

GLENN CLOSE MAKEUP BY CELEBRITY MAKEUP ARTIST CATHY HIGHLAND

INSPIRATION
Timeless beauty was the inspiration for Glenn’s Oscar look. With the unique color of her dress, I wanted Glenn’s face to be fresh, but also have enough pop for the cameras on the red carpet and last all evening through the parties following the live telecast. And yes, since it was the special night of the Academy Awards…we all agreed on pure glamour!

PRODUCTS
Skincare: The night before Glenn used CHANEL Sublimage La Creme Texture Supreme ($390.00). Before I applied the makeup, I used CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum (Available April 2012).

Foundation: I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 ($45.00). It was set and finished off with CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Translucent 1 ($45.00).

Blush: CHANEL Powder Blush in In Love ($43.00).

Eye Shadow: I covered the lid with the shimmery CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre in Émerveille ($36.00). I then blended the darker green shadow from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Lilium ($58.00) up to the crease creating a soft, classic smoky eye.

Eye Brows: CHANEL Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil in Blond Clair ($29.00).

Eye Liner: I used CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Brun ($29.00). I like to emphasize the lash line with a very fine line of black. My personal trick is using a tiny brush and dipping it into the black waterproof mascara for a ‘stay in place’ application for a long day.

Lipstick: Lastly, I applied CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lipshine in Unique ($32.50), a reddish berry pink with gold sparkles.

INSPIRATION
Classic Hollywood, but with a young and fresh twist to highlight Angelina’s natural beauty.

PRODUCTS
CHANEL Le Vernis in Tendresse ($26.00) on fingers and toes

RED CARPET NAIL TIP
It is important to moisturize the hands. I always mix a formula with a special blend of organic natural oil, butter and organic sugar.

INSPIRATION
The inspiration was just clean and simple like the makeup, it was a very ethereal look due to the dress being clean lines and simple.

PRODUCTS
CHANEL Protective Base Coat ($25.00) on fingers and toes
CHANEL Extreme Shines Nail Lacquer ($25.00) on fingers and toes

KRISTEN WIIG ~ FINGERS & TOES PAINTED BY CELEBRITY MANICURIST ALICIA TORELLO

INSPIRATION
We wanted a clean and chic look, but something unexpected and not traditional. We wanted to do something fun and bold and something that contrasted beautifully with her blush-colored dress.

PRODUCTS
CHANEL Le Vernis in Black Satin ($26.00) on fingers

RED CARPET NAIL TIP
About a week up to the event it’s good to moisturize the hands and oil the cuticles often. When deciding on a polish for a big night out, you can’t really go wrong with any CHANEL color, each one creates a statement because the polish is so bold and unique even if it’s a natural shade.

All products are available online on Chanel.com.

Rihanna in Vintage Chanel Cap

Rihanna hit the streets with blonde new locks and wearing a vintage Chanel leather cap. Not sure the exact year of the hat but it definitely looks like 80s or early 90s. I’m loving it – what do you think?

Viva Las Vegas! Chanel Hosts Numéros Privés

chanel numeros prive las vegas chanel carnival machine
Chanel is hosting Numéros Privés (“private numbers”), an eight-day invitation-only event/installation housed at the Wynn in Las Vegas.  The event launched on Friday with a soiree and in true Chanel fashion, the company charted private jets to fly in important clients, friends of the brand, and celebrities including the darling Les Fidèles de Chanel.  Entertainment included DJs Alexa Chung and Nick Cohen with a live performance by Imelda May and her band (retro rockabilly – video posted below if you’re not familiar).

Barbara Cirkva, Chanel’s fashion division president stated that the purpose of Numéros Privés is to “surprise and delight people” – and surprise and delight it did. With ten rooms all devoted to the signatures of the brand, the exhibition played on Coco Chanel’s lucky numbers 5, 2.55 and 31. WWD reported:

One room was filled with Chanel Bearbrick dolls and matching wallpaper, another displayed fine jewelry among sculpted topiaries. There was a recreation of Coco’s apartment at 31 Rue Cambon, and a digital room that decoded the making of the 2.55 handbag. It had quilted leather walls. But no room was as popular as the one filled with old-school carnival claw games, where mesmerized guests tried to grab little Chanel gift bags with a mechanical arm.

The event also coincides with the store re-opening at the Bellagio and with Chinese New Year when many international clients travel to Las Vegas.

I only have one question…where was MY invitation? It MUST have gotten lost in the mail:)

Chanel at the 2012 Golden Globes and Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Julianne Moore Chanel Couture Golden Globe Awards
It’s award show season and it wouldn’t be a true red carpet without Chanel! Last night was the 2012 Golden Globe Awards and Julianne Moore looked lovely in black Chanel couture. The gown that Stella Tenant wore in the Chanel Couture Fall 2012 was one of my favorites and thought it looks lovely on Julianne Moore, I miss the shoulder ruffles.

At the Art of Elysium Gala January Jones and Rachel Bilson wore Chanel cocktail dresses. Rachel Bilson shined in Chanel Spring 2012 RTW and January Jones wore Chanel Resort 2011/12 collection.

Madonna Likes Chanel Gloves

madonna chanel gloves

Madonna has made two recent public appearances wearing Chanel fingerless gloves. I’m a huge fan of the gloves myself but no one wears them quite like Uncle Karl. Some people are speculating that she’s wearing the gloves to hide her hands since hands don’t lie as far as age is concerned. Hiding or not, I think Madonna looks great at any age. Keep wearing your Chanel gloves!

Karl Lagerfeld on Lady Gaga

lady gaga chanel karl lagerfeld sketch

For her V Magazine column in the music issue, Lady Gaga asked three designers she recently had the pleasure of working with recently to submit some notes on working with the musician.  One of the designers, Karl Lagerfeld, stated:

Gaga gives the world her music and her talent, but the thing I like most is that she fights against boredom and banality. She also puts forth an ever changing, inspiring, and strong image — an image beyond fashion. She is an extreme concentrate of “zeitgeist,” freeing us from the heavy boredom of publicly displayed political correctness by being herself more than politically correct. Something in today’s world would be missed if there would be no Lady Gaga because Gaga is a Lady.

Zoe Kravitz in Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/2012 Ready-to-Wear

zoe kravitz in chanel at unicef snowflake ball

Earlier this week Zoe Kravitz attended the 2011 UNICEF Snowflake Ball in dress from the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/2012 Ready-to-Wear collection.  I think she looks nice in the dress and is age appropriate but her hair – especially her bangs – are killing me.  How do you wear a Chanel dress and then go out with your hair like that?  I don’t get it.  What do you think?

I also noticed that on the runway version the dress is shorter, has a belt and does not have the black detail on the sleeves.  I think the runway version is nicer.  I don’t think those details make a huge difference in the overall look of the dress but they are still noticeable.  Do you think those small details make a big difference?

Lady Gaga Wears Chanel for Barney’s “Gaga’s Workshop”

Karl Lagerfeld Sketch Lady Gaga Barneys New York Gagas Workshop
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.
