Indulge in Style with Magnum Ice Cream and Rachel Bilson

Last week we showed you some behind the scenes images of the ad campaign for Magnum Ice Cream featuring Rachel Bilson and directed by Karl Lagerfeld.  To mark the launch, Magnum is hosting a contest on Polyvore. Submit your entry by styling a chic red carpet look for a chance to attend the debut of Karl Lagerfeld’s film series starring Rachel at the Tribeca Film Festival.  Rachel Bilson will judge the contest, and she and Karl Lagerfeld will both be in-attendance at the premiere!  It’s like playing dress up – only better.  Contest ends on April 4th so get stylin’!

PS  – I tasted the Magnum vanilla ice cream/dark chocolate bar – it was very tasty! I wish I had one right now :)

Knock It Off! Dirty Laundry Copies Chanel Camellia Rain Boots

I was searching online for rain boots and I came across a pair by Dirty Laundry that is a copy of the Chanel Camellia rain boots from Fall-Winter 2009/2010. Tsk tsk!!  The flowers are exactly the same.  Dirty Laundry added a chain – but that too is borrowing from the Chanel lexicon.

Coca Cola Light – Karl Lagerfeld’s 2011 Designs

karl lagerfeld coca cola light 2011 diet coke

Last year, Karl Lagerfeld collaborated with Coca Cola Light on an aluminum limited edition soda bottle.  For 2011, Uncle Karl has revisited the partnership and has designed three new bottles.  All three bottles feature a color scheme of black, white and fuchsia.  Lagerfeld also photographed the ad campaign that features Coco Rocha, Heidi Mount and Jeneil Williams.  The bottles will be available in June.  I’m wondering if Coco Rocha is a huge Diet Coke fan since she was in the first ad campaingn (pictured below).

Chanel Summer 2011 Makeup: Les Fleurs D’Ete

les fleurs d ete de chanel summer 2011 makeup collection

For the Summer 2011 makeup palette, Peter Philips was inspired by summer flowers. The pretty pinks, peaches and soft yellows look like they will go beautifully with a healthy tan. Back in November we gave you a sneak peek of Mimosa, the newest Chanel color that will surely cause a commotion. Here, we can see the three new colors. They’re all pretty but Mimosa is by far the most unique. It’s making me want to lay poolside and sip one… just a few more months! Here’s a breakdown of all the new colors…

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Chanel Ice Cream

This photo has been circulating online for a few years now.  I just saw it resurface and I had to post it.  I don’t know anything about it, but I’m guessing it’s not from Chanel but more of an art project much like the cupcakes, lollipops and resin sculptures we’ve seen before.

Karl Lagerfeld Directs Rachel Bilson in Magnum Ice Cream Ad

No, this has nothing to do with Chanel – but it was to do with premium ice cream and Karl Lagerfeld so I like it. In celebration of the U.S. launch this April, Magnum – one of the world’s most luxurious ice cream brands – has collaborated with global icon and creative visionary, Karl Lagerfeld, to create, produce and direct a series of three films, starring actress and style-setting starlet, Rachel Bilson.

The sensory-rich, original film series offers Americans a look into the pleasurable lifestyle Magnum ice cream has cultivated around the world for more than 20 years. The three films, “Photo Mood,” “Applause,” and “Art Class,” will premiere at an exclusive event during the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21. Simultaneous to the premiere during Tribeca, the lead film will be released to fans on Magnum’s Facebook page, and the two subsequent films will make their Facebook debut in the weeks to follow.

The shoot took place in Paris this week and I’d like to provide you with a first glance at Karl Lagerfeld’s creative vision. In addition to starring in the short-film series, Rachel Bilson will judge a Magnum-inspired contest with Polyvore, which will launch this Friday, March 25. The winner, whose set best reflects the luxury of the Magnum lifestyle, will attend the premiere of the Karl Lagerfeld-directed film series during the Tribeca Film Festival.

Magnum Ice Cream will be arriving in stores this month and next. It’s sold at grocery stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway and convenience stores (i.e. Walgreens, etc). I took a look at the flavors and they look delicious. I can’t wait to try it!

Video of Coco Chanel’s Apartment at 31 Rue Cambon

I just came across this video of Coco Chanel’s apartment at 31 Rue Cambon. I have to say that since not everyone is allowed up there, I thought the quality of the video would be a bit better – it comes across as a bit touristy/amateur – just sayin’. But, it is an inside look into the legendary apartment so I’ll take what I can get! Hopefully, one day I’ll have a video of my own :)

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle 2011 Ad Campaign – All Videos and Photos

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Ad CampaignI put up several posts on the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle ad campaign – feeding you little bits of info as I received it. Well, today, I received everything – the entire media package and I’m laying it all out here for you to enjoy.

On March 21, 2011, CHANEL will debut the highly anticipated short film titled, “Coco
Mademoiselle,” starring Oscar®-nominated actress Keira Knightley.

Three years after the first commercial film, Knightley reprises her role as COCO MADEMOISELLE, a modern
day Coco Chanel whose mystery, daring and rebelliousness are at the heart of her charm.

While the first film featured long evening gowns, the second takes on a more urban feel, with Knightley
appearing on the streets of Paris in a chic, beige motorcycle jumpsuit designed for her by Karl Lagerfeld.
Filmed in legendary locations across the City of Light – from Place Vendome to Place de la Concorde, the film
is a collaboration between Knightley and Joe Wright, a creative relationship that began with Wright’s
directorial debut, the Oscar®-nominated film Pride & Prejudice, and continued with the Oscar®-nominated

“For me, Gabrielle Chanel is an icon and there was an incredible power emanating from all the photos of her,”
states Knightley. “When I began to delve into her history more closely, I was obviously fascinated by her
immense talent as a designer, but more than that, by her singular background.”

The commercial film’s soundtrack, “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World” by James Brown is performed by the
soulful voice of Grammy® award winner, Joss Stone and was published by Warner Chappell.
Coco Mademoiselle is a fresh oriental scent created by CHANEL master perfumer Jacques Polge in 2001.
The fragrance represents the ever-evolving spirit of Coco Chanel in this feminine, sexy, young and exciting

A national cable television flight of 30 and 60 second spots will debut March 22, 2011. A print advertisement
shot by Mario Testino will debut in April 2011.

In April 2006, Knightley joined the legendary league of women who have represented CHANEL in global
advertising campaigns. Her elegance, beauty and modernity are some of her qualities that parallel the iconic
faces featured in the CHANEL fragrance campaigns, including Nicole Kidman, Ali McGraw, Catherine
Deneuve and Audrey Tautou for N°5, Vanessa Paradis for Coco and Anna Mouglalis for Allure Sensuelle.
