Keira Knightley in Chanel Couture at London Premier of Never Let Me Go

For the premiere of Never Let Me Go in London, Keira wore a CHANEL Haute Couture gown made exclusively from pearls. Pearls are classic, timeless and chic, I wanted all of these qualities to work with the make up to create and iconic image that would still look current years from now.

-CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee

Last week, Keira Knightley attended the London premier of her new film Never Let Me Go in a stunning Chanel couture gown made of pearls. As the launch of the new Coco Mademoiselle ad campaign featuring Ms. Knightley nears, we can be sure to see her sporting Chanel at many upcoming events. Chanel celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee coordinated the couture dress with an equally stunning look. She shared…

Keira is one of my favorite canvasses, she has a magnificent bone structure, and beautiful features, so its always hard to choose which one to play up! I went with eyes, as I thought a strong elegant eye would look great with her new cut. To make it slightly more modern, I used only cream shadows, a mixture of CHANEL Intense Eye Liner in Noir inside the eye and along the bottom and top lash line. I also crept it up onto the outer third of the socket to add depth, after lots of gentle blending I added in Nars creme shadow from the Thebes Duo to the centre of the lid, and also to the brow bone to add a glow and create dimension. Finally, I curled the lashes, gave the lashes a generous coat of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, and then added a few clumps of Ardel lashes in a random pattern. The final effect was dramatic but modern. Her lips were CHANEL Rouge Coco Lip Colour in Perle, and I sculpted her cheeks with CHANEL Powder Blush in Imprévu.

Keira Knightley in Chanel Beauté

Keira Knightley, star of the upcoming COCO MADEMOISELLE advertising campaign sequel directed by Joe Wright, wore CHANEL makeup at the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear Show in Paris on Tuesday, October 5th, 2010.

Keira looked gorgeous and I love her new bob. I wonder if it was inspired by Coco? Keira’s look was created using the following products – it won’t make us look like her but it will get us as close as we can:

Face: VITALUMIÈRE AQUA Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rosé – Tendre (available March 2011)
JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in Pink Explosion

Eyes: LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow in Tentation Cuivré
MASCARA INIMITABLE WATERPROOF in Noir

Lips: ROUGE COCO Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Chintz

Chanel Soho Story Collection

For me, SoHo is a place where Bohemian ideals meet the toughness of the city… I love the tension and energy this creates.

-Peter Philips

To commemorate the re-opening of the Chanel Soho Boutique, and just in time for New York Fashion Week, Peter Philips created the Soho Story Collection features feminine pinks juxtaposed with industrial metallics.  The collection includes a palette inspired by pop art with the letters SOHO stamped in the powder.  One swipe of all 4 shades gives you a healthy, natural glow.  From nails to lips, the Soho Story Collection covers all bases.  Peter Philips explained,

I had a specific girl in mind who is both hard and soft. A girl who discovers a new city, a new life.” adds Peter Philips. “This is a very special kind of New York woman.  She is innocent, but she has a steely determination that fuels the city.

The full collection consists of: Soho de Chanel ($65.00), Quadra Eye Shadow in Stupendous, ($56.00), Rouge Coco in Stunning, ($30.00), Rouge Allure Laque in Stunt, ($32.00), Glossimer in Star, ($27.00), Le Vernis in Steel, ($23.00), Le Vernis in Strong, ($23.00).  Chanel’s Soho Story collection will be available on chanel.com on September 7th and September 10th at the SoHo Boutique (Fashion’s Night Out).

Peter Philips on the Fall/Winter 2010-2011 Haute Couture Red Lip

chanel fall/winter 2010-2011 haute couture beauty
The Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 Haute Couture show featured very simple makeup with a striking red lip. This is the look Coco Chanel herself preferred so it should come as no surprise that it showed on on the runway. Also, Chanel recently released its Rouge Coco line of lipsticks in their attempt to “bring lipstick back” and what better way than to feature it on the runway? See the Global Creative Director for Chanel talk about what inspired the faces on the runway…

Chanel 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture Beauty

Chanel 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture Beauty

On Tuesday, Chanel had its 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris with an “8-ton, 40-foot-tall golden lion, [with] its paw perched on an enormous pearl” serving as the backdrop. (WWD). The beauty at the show was very classic and simple:  soft eyes and cheeks with a strong red lip with nails to match.  I think it’s clean look for fall where makeup can tend to get heavy.  The overall look is very light but warm enough for the cold months.

Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks at the 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture runway show in Paris:

Complexion:
PRO LUMIÈRE Professional Finish Makeup
POUDRE UNIVERSELLE LIBRE Natural Finish Loose Powder
ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE Highlighter Face Pen
CORRECTEUR PERFECTION Long Lasting Concealer

Eyes:
LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow in Enigma
LE SOURCIL DE CHANEL Perfect Brows

Lips:
LE CRAYON LÈVRES Precision Lip Definer in Carmin
ROUGE COCO Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Rivoli

Nails:
LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Rouge Fatal (launching in October 2010)

Chanel is Bringing Lipstick Back: Introducing Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour

Chanel is Bringing Lipstick Back: Vanessa Paradis for Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour

Chanel is Bringing Lipstick Back: Vanessa Paradis for Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour

They say lipstick sales are “recession proof” – in fact – sales usually go up. Why? Because it’s an inexpensive way to look beautiful and freshen up your look. Chanel is taking note and bringing lipstick back to a young customer base that is infatuated with lip gloss. This March, Chanel is introducing Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour – and bringing back the lost art of sexily applying your lipstick.

Vanessa Paradis, the French actress (and Johnny Depp’s leading lady) is the face of the campaign and this is not the first time Paradis has worked with Chanel.  Andrea D’Avack, president of Chanel Fragrance & Beauté, stated: “Vanessa has been very linked to the house over the years, and she represents a young, sophisticated woman who we also believe will be the consumer for Rouge Coco.”  Print and TV ads have been shot though it’s still unclear whether TV spots will be placed in the U.S.

The Rouge Coco line has 30 shades and each hue is named after an influential part of Coco Chanel’s life – Camelia, Mademoiselle, and Paris – to name a few.  The shades come in one of four color families Roses-Pinks; Reds-Corals; Violets-Berries, and Neutrals-Browns and will be available in different global markets.

Like many Chanel cosmetics, the packaging takes it’s cue from Chanel’s history with black and gold detailing, interlocking C’s and the Chanel name embossed into each lipstick bullet.  The Rouge Coco collection debuts in March with each lipstick retailing for $30 at fine retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Chanel.com.
