PSH! First I post a Best of Tumblr dedicated to photobooths and then Karl Lagerfeld decides to shoot Freja Beha Erichsen in a photobooth for his Fall/Winter 2011 Chanel campaign? COINCIDENCE? Well, yes. I must say, it feels pretty good to have the same direction/appreciation as the photoshoot’s stylist – and my personal hero – Carine Roitfeld. View Post
…of herself, according to Lively’s interview in the July issue of Glamour US with Florence Welch. On the cover of the monthly, Blake wears a Michael Kors Fall/Winter 2011 look – the next best thing to nude? Part of the the interview and the full photo spread – featuring my dream wardrobe – is below! View Post
When pre-covering Chanel Cruise/Resort 2012, I had no idea it would be this captivating. Karl Lagerfeld‘s latest collection for the brand was interesting, thoughtful, and superior to his past two ‘Fashion Week’ collections. With diamonds, diamonds everywhere, Karl explained that he was inspired by Rita Hayworth and Aly Khan (who happened to once be residents of the Hotel du Cap – the most expensive hotel in the world and show location). At ground level, we saw hybrid boot-thong footwear – a bong? – that reminds the forgetful of the pique and beguilement that is Chanel.
(The show also propelled my girl crush on Josephine Skriver.)
Not only does the invitation – seen above – feature Coco Chanel herself, but Monsieur Lagerfeld has also filmed a 30-minute movie, called Tale of a Fairy, to screen at the fashion show. In the trailer below, you can catch a glimpse of Freja Beja Erichsen (as a lip-locking lesbian fairy), Kristen McMenamy (the queen), Baptiste Giabiconi (because nothing can be Karl-ed without him), and Mark Vandaloo (he’s back?!). Thankfully, anyone without an invitation will be able to watch it at Chanel.com starting Tuesday, May 10th.
“It is a movie about an ill-advised use of money which begins with violence and ends with feeling.”

Fashion Spot latest, see all about it! After realizing I made a pretty horrendous ‘fashion spot’ last week, I really wanted to kick it up a notch this Friday by working with a megabrand favourite – Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld‘s baby does advertising very, very well; so I have simply tweaked the elegant, beautiful ad expectations. Simple make up and classic, crisp images with the right amount of white space for the logo (I feel they go overboard with this element at times). Can’t wait to see yours!
