I stopped by two of the Chanel boutiques tonight to check out the Fashion’s Night Out festivities – 57th Street and Soho. I went to the 57th Street location first and there was a line out the door before 6 PM when the night officially kicked off. Since I’ve had 3 manicures in 24 hours (manicures seem to be the blogger event du jour) I opted not to have my nails painted. I did however buy the polishes and two more Illusions d’Ombre (because I LOVE them). Afterward, my sister and I headed downtown to Soho and had dinner down the block from the Soho boutique. The line at the Soho store was around the block and it was still very early in the evening. I hope if you ventured out to one of the Chanel boutiques that you were able to get your nails painted. Can’t wait until next year and the next set of limited edition colors!

I’m happy to announce that La Chanelphile has been selected as a NY Fashion Week correspondent for Glam! I’m reporting from New York and I’ll be giving you a taste of the fashion action happening here in the Big Apple. To kick off Fashion Week, Glam and Qream hosted a night of pampering and tasty indulgences.
I’ve rarely been one to go for “girly” drinks but tonight I experienced a drink that appeals to the sophisticated ladies in us. Qream is a cream liqueur available in two flavors – strawberry and peach. Pharrell Williams had a hand in the development and marketing of Qream and you know that whatever he touches is instantly cool. Qream is no exception.
To get us acquainted with Qream, Glam and Qream hosted a night of pampering at a NYC salon. We each had a manicure and pedicure as we sipped our cocktails. How decadent! For a girl that likes luxury, tonight’s event could not get any better.
For those of you who haven’t tried it yet, Qream is a tasty alternative to the standard bar fare that is feminine but not “frou frou.” From the soft pink and peach color, to the sweetness on your palette, to the perfume-esqe stylized bottle, you’ll be the first to know the cool touch of Qream. Who knew taste-making could be so delicious?
Please drink responsibly. Drinking and driving is not chic. (Neither is drinking and dialing).
Qream Brand Statement:
QREAM WITH A QTM is a one-of-a-kind cream liqueur. It was created by an inspired alliance between Diageo and Grammy Award-winning musician, cultural ambassador and style visionary, Pharrell Williams. Williams was instrumental in the development of the liqueur’s creation – from taste and bottle design to marketing and advertising. Available in the U.S. in two flavors – Strawberry Crème and Peach Crème – Qream is 99% lactose free at 12.5% ABV. Visit the Qream Facebook page at facebook.com/qreamofficial.

Sorry for the lack of posts I’m getting ready for my flight to NY for Fashion Week! To kick off fashion week, Fashion’s Night Out is a huge event that takes over Manhattan. To commemorate the occasion, Chanel is releasing Les Jeans de Chanel and having events at many of its boutiques. Check out the flyer below to see if a Chanel near you is hosting a FNO event. I’ll be at one of the Chanel boutiques in NYC – just not sure which one yet. Are any of you going??

So, the rumors weren’t true…Blake Lively can’t attend the Chanel Fall/Winter 2011 Ready-to-Wear show in Paris because of a scheduling conflict with the Gossip Girl shooting schedule – not because she thinks celebrities shouldn’t sit front row. Whew!
Since she couldn’t make it to the show, Blake Lively hosted a dinner in Paris at the Chanel couture salon, complete with performance by Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. A pink rose décor and three course meal by a two-star Michelin chef set the scene for the who’s who of fashion elite including Lou Doillon, Karen Elson, Anna Wintour and her daughter Bee Shaffer, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Chanel spokespeople Anna Mouglalis (bags, fine jewelry and watches), Elisa Sednaoui (glasses) and Chanel’s brand ambassadors Leigh Lezark, Caroline Sieber.
It sounds like it was a lovely event. Dear Chanel, please bring on some blog ambassadors and please let moi be one!
