Lily Allen to Wear a Chanel Wedding Dress

OOOH! Word on the Web is that Lily Allen will wear a Chanel wedding dress. You may remember that she was the face of the Coco Cocoon collection and sang at the Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear show.  She’s engaged to Sam Cooper and she was in attendance in Paris at the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/2012 Ready-to-Wear show. She told WWD: “I’m here to see Karl for my wedding dress.” So exciting! I can not wait to see this!

Vanessa Paradis for Chanel Coco Cocoon

Chanel Coco Cocoon Collection Spring 2010

A few months back it was announced that Vanessa Paradis would replace Lily Allen as the face of the Chanel Coco Cocoon collection.  Paradis is the Chanel “it girl” of the moment and she must have Uncle Karl smitten as she’s snagged the Chanel Coco Rouge & Coco Cocoon campaigns.

The second Chanel Coco Cocoon collection was recently released and chanteuse Vanessa Paradis provides the face and soundtrack for the collection.  The images, shot by Karl Lagerfeld, are beautiful and alluring in soft black and white and feature Paradis lovingly clutching various styles of the Cocoon collection.  The campaign shots and collection photos all play to the tune of Paradis’ “L’Incendie”.

Coco Cocoon features several styles of bags in quilted nylon and lambskin, with some boasting Orylag trim (fancy French rabbit fur).  I love the Coco Cocoon collection because they are updated takes on the iconic Chanel quilting pattern reworked into very modern, practical wearable bags.  These are the types of bags that you can use for weekend travel or for everyday use – you can fit your laptop and then some!  View pictures from the campaign and collection below.

Vanessa Paradis Replaces Lily Allen as the Face of Coco Cocoon

Chanel’s Coco Cocoon collection launched last year with Lily Allen as the face of the campaign.  For the next campaign for the collection, Lagerfeld has chosen to replace Allen with Vanessa Paradis, the French actress that is currently the spokesperson for Chanel’s Rouge Coco lipstick.  Like the other Chanel campaigns, the campaign was shot by Karl Lagerfeld. The images are scheduled to debut in the June issues of magazines.  Paradis also has a long history of working with Chanel and began her partnership with the brand in 1994 when she was featured in an ad campaign for the Coco fragrance.

The Glamorous Life: Lily and Karl are Back at it Again!

The Glamorous Life: Lily and Karl are Back at it Again!

The Glamorous Life: Lily and Karl are Back at it Again!

Earlier this summer singer Lily Allen made her debut as Chanel’s newest face. She channeled Audrey Hepburn while Karl Lagerfeld shot her and Chanel’s amazing Coco Cocoon bags. Now, thanks to the Daily Mail, we get a sneak peek at Lily playing dress up for Uncle Karl again, this time going for a sexier look that features a mop of messy hair and a vamp red lip.

These images are more in line with the sweet and saucy Lily that we’ve all come to know and love via her two hit albums and countless paparazzi shots.  That’s the Lily that Karl handpicked for this campaign despite the fact that she admits to being very aware that she is “5 ft 2 in and a size 12” and uncomfortable modeling. However, with her affinity for Chanel bags and her fiery personality it’s no wonder Lagerfeld, who describes her as fun, chose her.

With her new found status as muse, it seems as Karl’s influence has rubbed off since Lily is taking a spin in the designing chair herself.  She has already done her own line of clothes for British label New Look and just recently launched a line of jewelry called Lily Allen of course.

Like most of you, I am eagerly awaiting the official release of Lily’s new Chanel Coco Cocoon ads. I have to see if she once again rose to the occasion and did Karl proud. I’m sure she did, because we all know Karl Lagerfeld would have it no other way.
