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 Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear Show Invite

In 2 short days Chanel will unveil its Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection and I can’t wait to see it!  Chanel unveiled an image of their show invitation (pictured above) and from the looks of it, maybe Chanel’s iconic Camellia is the inspiration for the collection.  Since it’s a spring collection, floral is always “on trend” so it’s a possibility.  From the looks of the invite, it seems that Uncle Karl is still liking the raw street art feel that imbued his Chanel Soho Boutique reopening.  All I can do is speculate – we’ll see in 2 days!

Chanel Soho Exclusives

To commemorate the re-opening of the Chanel Soho Boutique, Chanel not only released a Beauté collection, but also released exclusive footwear, leather goods and ready to wear pieces. The ready to wear pieces include a lambskin and “fantasy fur” coat featuring Crystal Renn in a shot made famous because her famous body was cropped out.  (I personally don’t think it was a big deal – I prefer cropping to photo shop any day).  The leather goods are handbags of different shades and sizes such as metallic python (in brown, red and light grey), black calfskin and caviar (in black and red). The calfskin bags feature a tweed lining, and all the bags have a “CHANEL Soho 2010” signature hidden inside – just to make it official. My favorite of the bunch is the footwear, especially the red python classic ballerina and the weekender boot made of black calfskin and python. Those boots were definitely made for stomping all weekend long in your favorite city. Take a look at the full collection below. To purchase, please visit the Chanel Soho Boutique at 139 Spring Street, 212-334-0055 or email SoHo2010Exclusives@chanelusa.com.

Behind the Scenes: The Making of the Chanel Fall-Winter 2010/2011 RTW Campaign

Back in March the internet was abuzz with the news that Karl Lagerfeld was in the Lower East Side of NYC shooting the Chanel Fall-Winter 2010/2011 RTW campaign.  Chanel released official behind the scenes images of Uncle Karl and Peter Philips in action.  The campaign features Freja Beha Erichsen, Abbey Lee Kershaw and to-die-for faux fur accessories.  You should be seeing these images in magazines soon.  View more images below…

Chanel Autumn/Winter 2010 Ready to Wear


Image: Chanel News

At Chanel, no expense is ever spared and the Chanel Autumn/Winter 2010 Ready to Wear show was no exception. For starters, a 265-ton iceberg was imported from Sweden to the Grand Palais for the Chanel show.   Sitting in a shallow pool of water and reaching 28 feet high, 35 ice sculptors took six days to carve the iceberg to form the perfect peaks and valleys.  Needless to say, the room was kept chilly to keep the ice from melting and the tone was set for the show.

The show opened with what I would call polar bear costumes – full fur bodysuits.  For PETA’s sake, all of the fur in the show was faux – and there was a lot of it!  I have to say that I did not like these polar bear outfits at all.  I think they look ridiculous and unless you are dressing up as a polar bear for Halloween, or are living on the Arctic Circle, I have no idea why or where you would wear these furry jumpsuits.

Thankfully, the collection did not just include fuzzy costumes.  The highlight of the show – apparel wise – was the interpretation of tweed and knits to go along with the faux fur theme/cold weather theme.  The tweeds had fur, lace, yarn and tulle – and some even had stone embellishments.  The knits ranged from sweaters, dresses, and tights and looked cozy chic.

My favorite part of the collection was the accessories (no surprise there).  Necklaces, cuffs, earrings and hair pieces dripped with metals, stones, yarn and faux ice.  I especially loved the bracelet with metal and yarn fringe (pictured above).  The boots looked like they had spats attached to them which I also loved.  The fur boots – like the jumpsuits – I did not love, but I appreciated the cleverness of the “ice” heels.  The highlight of the accessories were of course the handbags.  From fur covered, to faux ice appliqued onto a bag with melting double CC’s the bags were exquisite.  My favorite was a play on the famous Chanel quilted pattern that actually looked like ice cubes.

The hair was big, teased and a bit messy, perhaps evoking the static of hat head in the winter?  I loved the eye makeup that was black and applied in a bit of a sporadic light, almost feather pattern.  The rest of the face was kept pretty bare and nude, as well as the nails.  As always, curious to see what the actual nail color will be – I’m sure it will cause a stir just like prior colors de jour.

Les Trompe-L’oeil de Chanel – Temporary Skin Art/Tattoos

Les Trompe-L'oeil de Chanel - Temporary Skin Art/Tattoos

I just received a package in the mail and was excited to see that it was my set of Les Trompe-L’oeil de Chanel, better known as the Chanel Temporary Skin Art/Tattoos.  The tattoos made their debut a few months back at the Spring 2010 Chanel Ready To Wear presentation.

The set includes 5 sheets with a total of 55 designs – each hand-drawn by Peter Philips, Chanel’s Global Creative Director of Makeup.  Each trompe-l’oeil references a classic Chanel motif – pearls, the double C’s, and chain links with woven leather.  Traditional tattoo references also include sparrows and cherry blossoms.

I love this set, though I will confess, I bought Les Trompe-L’oeil de Chanel purely as a collector’s piece – I won’t be using any of these temporary tattoos.  I like to keep my skin canvas blank, but if you don’t want to commit to a real tattoo, then what it doesn’t get better than a Chanel temporary tattoo.

I was on a waiting list to get Les Trompe-L’oeil de Chanel but it may not be too late to get yours.  Try contact Ruby at the Chanel at the Encore in Las Vegas and tell her Gabriella sent you!
