Chanel introduces a trio of favorite colors that will keep you looking peachy keen called “Endless Summer” – the perfect colors to complement your tan (which of course, Coco made fashionable).


I was a history major so I love history – add fashion to the mix and we have a winner! Chanel News gave us the inside scoop on the history of the decor of the Spring 2011 Haute Couture show.


More history! This time, Chanel News gives us some info on the architectural history of iconic 31 Rue Cambon. It turns out Coco was a real estate mogul too!


Chanel had a site devoted to Valentine’s Day – it’s still up and definitely worth checking out. I NEED the double lion head bangle bracelet!

Chanel News just posted a video that shows the details of some of the pieces from the Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection.  I wish I could see all of the pieces close up – many of them look simple from afar but upon closer examination you see all of the intricacies – just gorgeous!

Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture Backstage


Chanel has posted some gorgeous images by Benoît Peverelli of the view backstage.  The shots are candid and are illuminated beautifully – they’re reminiscent of paintings.  Chanel has also posted photos from the rehearsal and shots of show attendees wearing their Chanel best.  And not limiting itself to images, there are also interviews with Karl Lagerfeld and Kirsten Dunst.  View it all on Chanel-News.

Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture Beauté

Last week Chanel presented its Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection. The beauty stand out was the angled eyeliner that not only was a nice contrast to the softness of the collection, but was also inspired by the black scarf in the painting of Chanel by Marie Laurencin that was interpreted by Karl Lagerfeld into a black ribbon choker.  The beauty was simple and pretty and was a nice complement to the collection.

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Make Up used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:
