Chanel Resort Show: Blake, Alexa, Rachel Bilson, Etc.

ChanelBlakeLively2 382x540 Chanel Resort Show: Blake, Alexa, Rachel Bilson, Etc.

Chanel showed its Resort 2011/2012 collection yesterday and the attendees of course included plenty of beauties, highlighted by Chanel handbag rep, Blake Lively. Karl Lagerfeld has received a lot of criticism for choosing the young actress to front Chanel, but the truth is, since the signing she is looking a lot slicker and has clearly benefited from Lagerfeld’s magic touch (though it looks like her red hair dye job was temporary ’cause it’s fading fast!). Still, if she doesn’t bring anything of substance to the plate beyond “Gossip Girl,” her days are going to be numbered as a starlette.

On the next page, Alexa Chung debuts two-tone hair, plus Clemence Poesy, Anna Mouglalis, Rachel Bilson, Karl Lagerfeld, Laura Bailey, Vanessa Paradis and Poppy Delevingne.

Video: Karl Lagerfeld Magnum Ice Cream Commercial

22 April 2011, 16.51 | Posted in Designer news, advertisement, celebrity | No comments »

We mentioned that Karl Lagerfeld showed the Magnum Ice Cream commercial he dircted at the Tribeca Film festival and here it is in full. It features Rachel Bilson and Baptiste Giabiconi and like most of Lagerfeld’s film-related efforts comes across as a fashion parody a la Zoolander. Which is really quite amazing given his talent as it applies to so many other platforms. Really, it’s akin to Madonna, who as much as she accomplished as a singer and dancer, fell completely flat every time she stepped before the camera and attempted to act. The truth is though, not every creative outlet is for everyone.

TribecaAshley&MaryKateOlsen2

There have been a number of Tribeca Film Festival events this past week in New York, and quite a few celebrities have been in attendance, ranging from fashion heavy hitters like Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld (who showed a Magnum Ice Cream commerical he directed, featuring Rachel Bilson) to professional party attenders and names from days gone by like Susanna Hoffs and Debbi Peterson of the Bangles. We culled through the images and picked our faves–some we know well and others we are clueless on, but whatever, their fashion choices caught our eye and a lot of the time that is all that matters. That’s Ashley and MK above of course–a little prezzy for SGP, who is an admirer of their styles choices, and as it happens in this instance we were in agreement.

More on the next page, including Leigh Lezark, Lauren Hutten, Zoe Karvitz, Susanna Hoffs & Debbi Peterson, Crystal Renn, Christy Turlington, Rachel Bilson, Christy Turlington, Karolina Kurkova, Jay Choi, Sky Ferreira and a few more.

VogueFendiAutumn2011 Fendi Front Flap Bag Autumn 2011

Beautiful quality and workmanship…..nobody does mean and vicious better than Fendi. Designer Karl Lagerfeld may receive far more recognition for his Chanel bags, but  looking at his bag designs for Fendi, one gets the feeling this label is his secret favorite, or at least the one that allows him to most express the devil within.

Video: Lagerfeld Explains The Coca-Cola Collaboration

11 April 2011, 15.01 | Posted in Designer Collaboration, advertisement | No comments »

Last week we were complaining about the collaboration between Karl Lagerfeld and Coca-Cola’s Diet Coke because there seemed to be no rhyme or reason to it. As if by magic, this video popped up today on Racked explaining the connection, from Lagerfeld himself:

“I love the idea and as everybody knows I drink Diet Coke and nothing else, night and day…..For me it was pure pleasure to do this campaign for people I like, for a product I love.”

Well if you put it THAT way, Karl!

ChanelUffie2 287x540 Coca Cola And Karl Lagerfeld Event

Karl Lagerfeld hosted a coming out party in Paris for his latest collaboration with Coca-Cola Light. It featured a bunch of Lagerfeld look-a-likes, and a bevvy of beautiful models and actresses. Singer Uffie is shown above. We spoke yesterday about the great exchanges that can come from collaborations, but this one has always rubbed the wrong way. It’s meaning is simply lost on me–no offense to the diet soda addicts in the crowd!

After the flip, images of Lagerfeld, plus more of Uffie (including a close up on her shoes), Lily Cole, Audrey Marnay, Lou Lesage, Beatrice Rosen and  Nicole Trunfio.

Making Of The 2011 Pirelli Calendar By Karl Lagerfeld

The above video gives a behind the scenes view of the making of the famous Pirelli calendar.
This year it was art directed by Karl Lagerfeld, whose theme of choice was Greek Gods. If you’re not familiar, the calendar is famous for the top girls it pulls, as photographed each year by a different industry heavy hitter. The t&a is endless so be mindful of who’s around when you press play!

Ines De La Fressange And Chanel Together Again

Ines Ines De La Fressange And Chanel Together Again

Longtime muse of Karl Lagerfeld, Ines de la Fressange (image via FB), will take the runway for Chanel when the label shows on October 5th. According to WWD, she will also appear in Spring ad campaigns, along with Stella Tennant and Freja Beha Erichsen. It’s always good to see designers show a more open-minded runway. While designers are allowed to choose whichever models they like to wear their clothes, I’m also free to conclude that those who populate their runways with women who all look very much alike are disappointingly not very creative in terms of their views on what constitues beauty. Presentation is part of an overall package, after all.

Chanel RTW Fall/Winter 2011: Still Furred The Eff Out!

23 June 2010, 20.43 | Posted in Uncategorized | 2 comments »

Chanel Fur, Fur, Fur!

In case anyone thought Karl was playing around when he showed his fall collection a couple months back featuring beautiful young women role-playing as plushies, his ready-to-wear fall 2010-2011 collection, which he showed in Tokyo today, shows he was dead serious. And while there were fewer teddy bears attempting to navigate the runway this time, fur was still flying everywhere. On the one hand, I love the furry looks. They actually cause me to bust out laughing when I think about them. On the other hand…well, I suppose there is no downside unless you’re a Chanel exec, wondering what the market is for rich society women willing to sip tea dressed as a sports team mascot (though oh god how I wish they would!)

Many more furry looks after the flip….the fur underpants–a tribute of sorts I suppose to Gaga/Beyonce–were my faves by far.
