Chanel 2011 Côte d’Azur Cruise Collection Post Cards

A few months back we mentioned that Chanel opened a pop-up shop in the Meatpacking District of New York to house the Chanel Côte d’Azur Cruise Collection.  As part of the St. Tropez feeling of the shop, customers could pick up Chanel postcards featuring images of Georgia May Jagger from the Cruise Collection ad campaign.

I wasn’t able to make it to the shop but Ruby from the Chanel at the Encore in Las Vegas was nice enough to send me a set of the postcards.  This “thank you” is long overdue but you can see the beautiful stationary and postcards below…

I just got back from NY for Fashion Week and it was a whirlwind trip and I’m still trying to catch up on posts. In the mean time here’s some of the best Chanel-related news from around the web…

  • Vanessa Paradis will be wearing custom Chanel designed by Karl Lagerfeld for her acoustic set at New York’s The Town Hall venue.  He shot Paradis last year at Versailles for a Vanessa Paradis DVD collector’s set.  WWD.

  • Safe sex is always in style – especially when you “keep it classy” in Chanel (fake) condoms.  Refinery 29.
  • To sell or not to sell?  That’s the question Karl seems to have been asking himself this past week about his NYC Gramercy Park apartment.  Apparently, he’s decided not to sell… WWD.

Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2011 Grammy Awards in Chanel Beauté

Gwyneth Paltrow rocked out on stage with Cee Lo Green in his performance of Forget You. While Cee Lo channeled the Fraggles/Muppets Gwyneth kept it classy in a black jumpsuit but she was a team player and wore some neon pink feathered earrings. Her makeup was done by Chanel Beauté and here’s the word on how to get the look straight from Chanel …

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Angela Levin worked with Gwyneth Paltrow at The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards Show on Sunday, February 13th. Please see Angela’s tips below on how to get Gwyneth’s chic, sexy rock and roll redcarpet look.

“I wanted sexy rock chic for Gwyneth! After applying a light layer of CHANEL Hydramax + Active Moisture Cream and waiting about ten minutes for it to absorb, I applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup in BR20 (available in March). For the eyes I chose CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Cinnamon, smoking the eyes, and also on the lower lash line. And of course tons and tons of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir! For concealer I used CHANEL Lift Lumière Smoothing and Rejuvinating Concealer in Rose Lumière in a half moon shape blending almost to the hair line and into the temples next to eye brow. I used round motions to create a soft sexy look. For her cheeks, I used the cream cheek colour in the CHANEL Multi-Use Makeup Palette in Paris- L.A, applying with a tapping motion using my fingers. Finally, her lips CHANEL Ultra-Wear Lip Colour in Rose Agate.”

Chanel Introduces Chanel Confidential

Since Peter Philips has taken the helm at Chanel as Global Makeup Creative Director it has been one non-stop stream of fabulous beauty products from Le Vernis Jade to the reintroduction of Coco Rouge lipsticks to Chanel robots.  Now, beginning at the end of February we’ll have a chance to see inside the makeup studio with the launch of CHANEL Confidential, a digital platform dedicated to CHANEL makeup showcasing Peter Philips’ universe and creations.

The animation of Chanel’s flying makeup robots will also be accessible on ChanelConfidential.com (which you actually already saw on Nowness and on LaChanelphile) but maybe there is an extended version on the Chanel site?  Also from the preview it looks like we’ll get makeup tips straight from the source.  Whatever the case, I will be there!

Jennifer Aniston in Chanel Beauté – Just Go With It Premiere

Jennifer Aniston wore Chanel Beauté at the NY premiere of her new movie Just Go With It.  She’s a natural, girl next door beauty and her cosmetics emphasized her beautiful features.

Makeup artist Angela Levin worked with Jennifer to create the look – here’s how – from the artist herself…

Jennifer looked like a golden California girl at the premiere of Just Go With It, a gorgeous contrast to the cold NYC night! Jen’s base was the new CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup, a soft, water-light formula with beautiful coverage. I used the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Kaska Beige on her eyes, applying the gold shade on the lid, and the lightest colour in the palette under the brow. I then blended the darker colours in the crease. I lined the bottom of the eyes with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, and to really make her blue eyes pop, I applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, on both the top and bottom lashes. Her lips were CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine in Deauville, a delicate nude brown shade launching in April.

Limited Preview: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in “Boy”

For the past year, Chanel has been bringing lipstick back and their latest release is “Boy” – very appropriate for Chanel since she was so inspired by men’s fashion. Here’s some more info on the release direct from the source…

Introducing ROUGE COCO SHINE, the newest lip collection from Creative Director for CHANEL Makeup Peter Philips. Fresh, sheer and luminous, ROUGE COCO SHINE provides beautiful, lasting, moisturizing shine in a water-light texture.

As an exclusive sneak preview, CHANEL will launch its star shade of ROUGE COCO SHINE, “Boy”, a sheer wash of natural rose, at select retailers and on CHANEL.com from February 10-14, 2011 only. It will not return to stores until the ROUGE COCO SHINE collection makes its official debut in April 2011.

There is no better time than Valentine’s Day to honor one of the greatest love stories of all time: Boy is the nickname of Arthur “Boy” Capel who was the love of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s life, the partner and guardian angel of her first success stories. He encouraged Coco’s first venture into hat-making, loaning her money to open her first milliner’s studio in 1910 on rue Cambon in Paris. It was her romance with Boy Capel that inspired her to draw a masculine energy into her constantly evolving wardrobe. She borrowed his pajamas, jackets and straw boaters, and made them her own.

ROUGE COCO SHINE in Boy will be available exclusively on CHANEL.com, and at select CHANEL Boutiques and department stores from February 10-14, 2011.

Suggested retail price: $32.00
