Claudia Schiffer for Chanel Prestige FW 2011/12 Eyewear Collection – Behind the Scenes & Campaign Images


Claudia Schiffer for Chanel Prestige Fall Winter 2011 2012 EyewearClaudia Schiffer is the back as the face of the Chanel Prestige FW 2011/12 Eyewear Collection. Her ad campaign images have been out for some time but I just saw some behind the scenes images on the British Vogue website. I’ve also included the actual campaign images in the gallery so you can see the finished product.

I’m really loving the sunglasses with the leather/chain detail – I may have to get a pair! Black x Gold of course!

Dior Uses LED Lit Set…Too

Dior Chanel LED light runwayAm I being too critical? Overly sensitive?  Grumpy?  I’ve been know to be a little of all of the above but every time Dior comes out with something new lately I feel like they aren’t even trying.  Instead, I feel like Dior is like a little kid looking over Chanel’s shoulder during a pop quiz.  Copying will get you nowhere!  In the latest copy cat act, Dior showed their less than stellar Spring 2012 collection with a backdrop lit by LED lights.  Dior, please hire a designer who will lead your house because right now you are following!

**UPDATE** To clarify, the top photo is from the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011-2102 Haute Couture presentation and the bottom picture is from the Dior Spring-Summer 2012 presentation.

Check out the how-to below…

Chanel Beauté Sponsored RxArt’s Annual Benefit Party

chanel rxart les fidels de chanelA few weeks ago Chanel Beauté sponsored RxArt‘s annual benefit party to raise funds to help RxArt place art in children’s hospitals.  The party chairs were none other than Les Fidèles de Chanel Jen Brill, Poppy Delevingne, Caroline Sieber and Vanessa Traina.  The event was a who’s who of the contemporary art scene with the likes of KAWS and Terry Richardson.  The back wall of the Highline Stages featured a floor-to-ceiling zebra drawing by Robb Pruitt that guests were encouraged to color in with Chanel markers.
