  • Show Studio has a sneak peek of the Spring 2011 collection – I love the details especially the ladybugs!  ShowStudio.

  • Karl says who he’d like to take his place at Chanel via WWD:

In an interview in Numero’s November issue, Lagerfeld replied: “I have a contract for life so it all depends on who I would like to hand it to. At the moment I’d say Haider Ackermann.” Lagerfeld has recently been enamored of Ackermann’s fashions, and had invited him to attend the most recent Chanel show. Ackermann reacted by saying, “What can one possibly say to such a phrase?! Such a compliment! Honored I feel, how can one not be?! In all honesty tremendously, immensely touched especially coming from Monsieur Lagerfeld.”

Chanel 2011 Spring/Summer Ready to Wear Beauty

Karl Lagerfeld showed me a sketch he had drawn of a girl with smoky eyes, so it was clear that we would put the focus on the eyes for this show. The inspiration for the color came from the black-white-green French garden that was recreated in the Grand Palais, from the glow that we can find in black, grey and white pearls, and the enamel that Karl integrated into the costume jewelry. I created deep, dark smoky eyes on a luminous fresh face with tinted, dewy lips. Nails were graphic and strong, and a thin black line was drawn in the hair.


- Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup

The beauty as the Chanel Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear show will no doubt be oft-imitated as it was lovely.  Dark charcoal smokey eyes was the highlight of a seductive look that featured an otherwise natural face.  Lips had a hint of blush that was just a few shades deeper than natural lip color.  Hair was straight and pulled back tight with center and side parts accentuated with a thin straight black line drawn with eyeliner.  The nails always steal the show and Black Pearl looks like it will be a color that will surely be duplicated by mass market nail polish companies.  I love the black gunmetal look of it and it really does look like the beautiful iridescent grey of Tahitian black pearls.  On their toes, models wore Pearl Drop, a white pearly color.  Though Pearl Drop is nice, Black Pearl is definitely on my wish list for spring.

Peter used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:
