Blake Lively Hosts Chanel Mademoiselle Dinner in Paris

Blake Lively Hosts Chanel Mademoiselle Dinner in Paris

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!

Chanel Cruise Show Jet Setting to St. Tropez

Chanel Cruise collections are always shown in a beautiful vacation locales from Miami to Venice.  For the upcoming 2010 Chanel Cruise show, Karl Lagerfeld is presenting the collection in France’s St. Tropez.  Situated in the French Riviera, St. Tropez is a glamorous vacation destination that’s a “playground to jetsetters, fashion models, and millionaires.” (Wikipedia)  Brigitte Bardot used to spend quite some time there and I wonder if she will inspire any part of the collection.

Karl Lagerfeld was in St. Tropez recently shooting the Chanel Cruise 2010 film to accompany the launch of the collection.  The cast includes actors “Elisa Sednaoui and Pascal Greggory in the leading roles alongside Jean-Roch, as well as models closely related to the House of Chanel: Freja Beha, Jake Davies, Magdalena Frackowiak, Baptiste Giabiconi, Sébastien Jondeau, Karolina Kurkova, Abbey Lee, Leigh Lezark and Heidi Mount.” (Chanel News)

Within recent seasons, Karl has added films to his repertoire to launch collections.  I think they do a wonderful job of bringing the collection and inspiration to life and I can’t wait to see this!  Stay tuned for the 11th!  For more behind the scenes images taken by actor Pascal Greggory, visit the Chanel News photo gallery.
