Mila Kunis in Chanel Beauté

Mila Kunis is all grown up.  I remember thinking she was so pretty as Jackie on That ’70s Show and it’s nice to see her as a young woman with a great career ahead of her.  The Black Swan co-star was at the People’s Choice Awards in Chanel Beauté.

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin worked with Mila Kunis at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday, January 5th. Here’s how Rachel go Mila’s smoky, sophisticated red carpet look…

I wanted Mila’s makeup to be sophisticated and sultry like the soft lines and colour of her dress. I accentuated her incredible eyes with a very soft earth-tone smoky eye. I started by blending CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Winter Nights, and finishing it with CHANEL Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Torrent, a khaki shimmer, on her upper eyelid. I blended a smoky quartz pencil along the inner bottom eye for a bit more intensity.  I kept the rest of her face very understated with soft peach cream blush, and a flesh toned gloss, CHANEL Rouge Allure Gloss in Insouciance.

I love the look of neutral lips and I think I may have to get Insouciance as my new go-to lipgloss.

Hello Kitty and Chanel Manicure

This manicure has taken two of my favorite things – Hello Kitty and Chanel – and put them on nails.  I saw these nails on Etsy.com and they’re created by Pui Lu, a manicurist in Malaysia, and she sells them on her Deco5444 Etsy Shop.  They are adorable.  If I still wore acrylics I think I this would be my signature manicure.

Window World by Karl Lagerfeld – The Short Film

After a controversial short film for the Paris-Shanghai collection, Karl Lagerfeld skipped doing a fashion film for the Paris-Byzance collection. I guess Lagerfeld couldn’t keep himself from shooting a short film though and what we have now is the release of Window World, Uncle Karl’s latest fashion film for Chanel.

Window World features Magdalena Frackowiak, Barbara Dvorakova and Baptiste Giabiconi as mannequins in a store window with music fit for a suspense movie in the background. If Mannequin and Psycho had a baby it would be Window World. Not Karl’s best work but entertaining nonetheless.

More Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 Ad Campaign Shots

Last week I posted the first images that had surfaced online of the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld and now more images are coming to light.  The complete spring 2011 campaign also includes Stella Tenant in addition to Baptiste Giabiconi and Freja Beha. The new images have the same relaxed, playful mood and garden backdrop – a beautiful canvas to showcase the lovely collection.

Blake Lively – The Face of Chanel Mademoiselle Bags

Last month, we heard rumors about Blake Lively taking on the role of brand ambassador for a Chanel handbag line.  We speculated that it may be for the Chanel Coco Cocoon collection with Blake following in the footsteps of Lily Allen and Vanessa Paradis.  Instead, WWD has just reported that Blake Lively is the face of a new line of Chanel handbags – the Mademoiselle bag.

First seen in the Chanel 2010/2011 Cruise show, the Mademoiselle bag is an oblong shaped bag featuring the brand’s signature quilting, chain strap and double-C logo.  Available in an array of colors and fabrics (cloth jersey, lambskin, calfskin, alligator, satin and shagreen), the bag retails for $2,000 – $3,300 for base ranges and over $30,000 for exotic skins.

Karl shot the campaign in Paris at the historic 31 Rue Cambon on the storied Chanel mirrored staircase that Mademoiselle herself would sit and watch her collection shows.  When asked why he chose Blake Lively, Karl stated:  “She’s full of life…She’s a kind of American dream girl…I think she will become a great actress.”

The ads for the new Chanel Mademoiselle bags will begin to surface in April 2011 magazines – I can’t wait to see the campaign!

Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 Ad Campaign

Images of Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign (as printed in the Elle UK Feb 2011 issue) have surfaced online and for the first two shots, Karl has gone with his favorite models of the moment – Baptiste Giabiconi and Freja Beha.  You may remember, the Spring/Summer 2011 collection was inspired by Last Year at Marienbad and the Grand Palais was transformed into a garden setting from the movie.  The ad campaign seems to be following a similar vein as they are photographed in a serene garden with lush foliage.

12 Days of Chanel: Chanel Bags

The most iconic of all women’s purses, the Chanel flap bag, would make a lovely gift for any occasion.  Though the flap bag in black leather is the most classic and elegant option, Chanel issues many bags each season.  Some bags are trend driven colors or fabrications of the 2.55 bag that match the current collection, others are new silhouettes.  From cassette tape clutches to ice cube bags, the ingenuity of Chanel bags is never ending.  If the bags are beyond your budget, you can start small with leather goods like wallets.  You can’t go wrong with quilted black calfskin…
