The most striking aspect of the Chanel Ready-to-Wear Autumn-Winter 2013/2014 makeup were the bejeweled eyes of all the models walking down the runway. But of course, every season the question most people have is, “what is the new nail color??” The answer is Elixir, and it will be out late summer as part of the Fall 2013 Collection.

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Haute Couture Beauty

Chanel Spring Summer 2013 Haute Couture Beauty

The hair and makeup at the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Haute Couture was whimsical and exquisite. The models looked like a cross between woodland nymphs and elegant feathered creature walking through the magical forest that Karl Lagerfeld conujured from his dreams. The striking elements of the beauty was the elaborate feather and tulle headpieces and the dramatic eyes. The eye makeup was dark and included tulle that was adhered to the skin around the models’ eyes. From crystal eyebrows the tulle lashes, Peter Philips is truly an artist at realizing Karl’s designs through beauty.

Karl Lagerfeld sketched a “no smoking” sign but it’s not your typical sign. However, he was not making a statement about unhealthy habits, instead he was noting all the YSL references on many runways and he was stating that you would find a “smoking” – the french term for tuxedo – on his runway. Lagerfeld stated: “We don’t have to do smoking. Hedi Slimane really does it well.” WWD

Peter Philips Interview from Metro

Metro sat down to chat with Peter Philips about the Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 beauty collection he created. Here are his thoughts as reprinted from Metro:

The inspiration behind his spring 2012 collection: “I chose spring horizons [at] sunset and sunrise, as it can be the most amazing moment of the day. I was afraid it would be a bit kitschy, mellow and corny but it’s also very beautiful. You can do anything you want with the products in the collection, whether you want to look sophisticated and intense or fresh and funky.”

Introducing the latest Le Vernis nail trilogy:
April, May and June:  “The most classical shade and the first to be released is April. Spring is coming, but you’re still in a wintry mood, so you want a darker shade that’s flattering and not too flashy. May is pink-y and girlie, and June has a beach-y feel to it. People will have gotten a bit of sun and color on their skin and can start wearing brighter colors. … The shades are anticipated not because of me, but because they’re Chanel. I have the advantage that I can link my creations with the fashion show — it gives them a reason to exist.”

His love of sparkles: “I don’t have a favorite color, I adore makeup in general. I love a good skin-tone beige and anything sparkly and dramatic.”

Philips’ Top 3 tips:

Invest in an eyelash curler: “All women should have an eyelash curler. This also applies to women who don’t wear makeup. It’s not a dangerous tool, although a lot of people are terrified of it. One pinch to the lashes can work miracles as it opens up your eyes and makes you look fresh and awake. Add some mascara, and you’re ready to go.”

Apply just the right amount:
“It’s a criminal offense to wear too much makeup, just as it is to wear too little. It’s all about striking a balance and wearing a look with confidence. Something that always looks wrong is not blending your foundation in so that you can see the line between the face and the neck. It’s so easy to avoid: Blend it out with your fingers and check the lighting in your bathroom.”

Remember, makeup can’t fix everything: “Every phase of your life has beauty in it. We all want youth, but at some point we have to realize that we’re getting older and it’s not all about foundation or mascara. If you eat and live wrong, it will have an impact on your looks. You know the tricks:?Eat more vegetables, stop smoking, drink water and cut back on alcohol.”

On color
: “It took 24 tries in the lab before we got the right shade for Le Vernis in June. I wanted it to be the color of this plastic bag handle I got from some random shop in the States. The bag was black and the handle was this beautiful orange plastic. It had to be that exact shade, but in lacquer. It had to look just like the plastic, not transparent or pearly.”

Chanel: The Little Black Jacket Photo Shoot with Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld

“The CHANEL jacket symbolises a timelessly fashionable form of nonchalant feminine elegance: it belongs to every era” – Karl Lagerfeld.

Chanel sent a video of a behind-the scenes look at the making of the The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic jacket revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. Watching this video is like watching the dream team of fashion at work with Peter Philips doing makeup, Carine Roitfeld styling and Karl Lagerfeld photographing. I’ve always wanted a Chanel Little Black Jacket and now I want one even more!

The images for this latest project were shot in Cannes, in the South of France, and then in New York, before finishing up in Paris in Karl Lagerfeld’s studio. Over a hundred models and celebrities have been captured by the designer’s lens. Actors, artists, singers, rock stars – the book’s impressive line-up encompasses all aspects of contemporary culture today including Georgia May Jagger, Carine Roitfeld, Sarah Jessica Parker, Virginie Ledoyen, Akuol de Mabior, Virginie Viard – and they all wear CHANEL’s uniquely timeless and versatile little black jacket in their own special way.

The Little Black Jacket: CHANEL’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld, will be available in bookstores beginning Autumn 2012.

Luck Be A Lady: Chanel Introduces Las Vegas de Chanel

Las Vegas de ChanelAnyone who has been to Las Vegas will tell you that town is not low on glitz or luxury. Between the neon lights and desert sand, the town is always painted in gold. The Bellagio Hotel is renovating the Chanel boutique in its Galleria and to commemorate this event, Peter Philips has created “gold-plated collection and strews stardust over polyester dreams.”

Las Vegas de Chanel includes four items: Lucky Stripes, a compact with four shades of sand and bronze to be worn on eyes, face or cheekbones; Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliant, a sheer golden lip shade; Le Crayon Lèvres Vegas Gold, a gold lip pencil; and it wouldn’t be a collection without a covetable Le Vernis in Gold Fingers.

The remodel should be completed by the end of this month.  I’ll actually be staying at The Bellagio mid-February when I go to some trades hows in Las Vegas and I will definitely check out the new space. And I hope to get my fingers on Gold Fingers!
