Chanel on the Red Carpet at the 2011 Costume Institute Gala

There were many starlets that wore Chanel Beauté on the red carpet at the 2011 Costume Institute Gala – and there wore those that wore haute couture.  I’ve always wondered why more actresses didn’t wear Chanel couture on the red carpet and last night the ladies did not disappoint.  Chanel was worn by many including Anna Wintour, Editor in Chief of Vogue and Chanel’s newest pretty young thing, Blake Lively.  I think my favorite Chanel ensembles were worn by Janelle Monae and Frida Pinto.  My lease favorite was worn by Kirsten Dunst.  I’m sure up close the dress is spectacular but it looked a little frumpy on Ms. Dunst.  What do you think? Which dress was your favorite?

“Venus inspired, a sexy and naked look.”

How-To:
Vivian first used CHANEL Sublimage Essential Revitalizing Concentrate to prepare Blake’s skin. Next, she lightly swiped CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Désert across her face and added Guerlain Terracotta Concealer 02.

On the apples of her cheeks, Vivian used Stila Petunia Blush and lightly brushed CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Terre Ambre over her nose, forehead and jawline. She then layered Becca Mermaid Shimmering Eyeshadow and the gold shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Spices on the eye and finished with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.

Word on the street is that Blake Lively will be attending the Met’s Costume Institute Gala with Karl Lagerfeld.  That’s pretty amazing.  Lively will be attending the most important fashion event of the year with one of the most influential designers alive.  Lucky girl! I can’t wait to see what she’s wearing!  Something tells me that she’ll be wearing Chanel :)
