Celebration Of Chanel’s Gabrielle Bag

Back in February, Chanel released the details of its forthcoming Gabrielle line, which was the brand’s first (major) new bag model since the ‘Boy’ bag back in 2011.

Chanel brand ambassadors – Kristen Stewart, Caroline de Maigret, Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne – will star in the campaign, however, only two of the three were on hand to host a party for the newest ‘IT’ bag at Giorgio Baldi on Thursday (April 6) in Santa Monica, California.

Lily Collins: There was a range of looks this event, but Lily’s tweed two-piece stayed true to the brands classic style.

Pharrell Williams: Leaving his Chanel pearls at home, the performer opted for a more sportier vibe on this occasion. The look almost has a 80s rapper vibe to it, the only thing missing is the chunky gold chain.

Katy Perry: If it wasn’t for the event, I would struggle to believe this was Chanel. It’s far too sloppy for my liking.

Chanel Fall 2017 Front Row

Always a haute ticket, the Chanel Fall 2017 presentation on Tuesday (March 7) during Paris Fashion Week brought with it a set of unique Chanel style statements in the range of front-row looks that were spotted.

Rita Ora
: Going for a relaxed edginess, Rita wore a more laid-back statement in her metallic, floral-print blouse and slouchy leather-accented pants with the pop of her spring-green bag bringing an unexpected burst of colour to the darker look.

Lily Allen: Sculptural and chic, Lily played with proportion in her cape-sleeve coat styled with plush velvet pants for added texture. Her sunglasses, gigantic hoop earrings, and embellished handbag ensured there was a spirited personality to the serious side of the look.

Cara Delevingne: There was no risk for lack of attitude in the model’s ensemble, which saw her breathe a unique boldness into the prim sweater by pairing it with low-slung trousers and Supreme boxers. A Chanel choker and retro round shades completed her style-rebel ensemble.

2017 Oscars Menswear Roundup

A handsome handful of guys also took to the red carpet for the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (February 26) in Hollywood, California.

David Oyelowo: The sharp suaveness of this Dolce & Gabbana tux, with its white dress jacket and contrast black labels, was undeniable. Christian Louboutin ‘Dada’ loafers capped off the look with a touch of polish.

Andrew Garfield: The classic black tuxedo received a slim-line, slightly cropped proportion in this Tom Ford number.

Riz Ahmed: Our third rendition of the tux came courtesy of Riz, who took his to more colourful territory in a blue Ermenegildo Zegna Couture suit accented with Montblanc studs and cufflinks and Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ shoes. For a couture piece, I would have expected a slightly more precise fit.

Charles Finch and Chanel Pre-Oscar Awards Dinner

The annual Charles Finch and Chanel Pre-Oscar Awards Dinner took place at Madeo Restaurant on Saturday (February 25) in Beverly Hills, California, with all our favourite stars in attendance.

Nicole Kidman: The grand dame looked as regal as ever in Chanel Spring 2017 Couture. While I wish she had kept the original length, she always excels in Chanel. The look was style with Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ sandals and a smattering of diamonds.

Janelle Monáe: I’m sure many of you will be singing ‘hallelujah’ upon sight of Janelle not wearing black and white or a multitude of clashing prints. I’m more excited that this gold Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 tuxedo dress could be another indication that my Oscars prediction of a black-and-white-out could be coming to fruition. The look was styled with a Chanel bag and Christian Louboutin ‘Louloudance’ sandals.

Naomi Watts: Colour is like food to my soul, so consider me full and plenty satisfied by Naomi’s Chanel Spring 2017 explosive print frock. The clutch, not so much.

2015 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs Red Carpet Menswear Roundup

2015 MTV Video Music Awards #VMAs Red Carpet Menswear Roundup

Here is a rundown of all the fellas who took to the red carpet for Sunday’s (August 30) 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.

Nick Jonas: While the singer looks like he’s off to a Harley convention in these Versace leathers, I have to say I love how his red carpet style is so unpredictable.

Brooklyn Beckham: The young footballer took to the red carpet solo wearing a dressy-casual Ralph Lauren look. There are a lot of elements going on here. Does it work for you?

Kanye West: The rapper colour coordinated his Kanye West x adidas Originals khaki outfit with a matching pair of adidas YEEZY Boost 350 sneakers to collect his Video Vanguard award.

‘Dope’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

'Dope' Cannes Film Festival Photocall
The ‘Dope’ photocall brought the stars beach side for a sunny rendezvous on Friday (May 22) as part of the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

Chanel Iman: The model wore a white Zimmerman Fall 2015 dress that flaunted Cannes-worthy sizzle and breezy flair all into one package.

Pharrell Williams
: Putting a kitschy zip in his step, he took to the beach in a colourful printed Adidas shirt, a message tee, and cropped white pants, all accessorized by a black belt, green beret, and woven bracelets. On some men, such an eclectic ensemble would just look ridiculous, but Pharrell pulls it off with his signature cool flair.

Zoe Kravitz: Also in a white frock, the actress was casually chic in the sand, although sweeping those locks up off her face would have lightened the look even more.

Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection New York Fashion Show

CHANEL Paris-Salzburg 2014 15  new york

Bold names filled the front row of the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City on Tuesday (March 31), where the collection of stars naturally all wore their Chanel head-to-toe best to watch the Austrian-inspired designs take to the runway.

Dakota Johnson: The ’50 Shades of Grey’ star continued to break outside her black-and-white-color shell in a warmly neutral Chanel Spring 2014 Couture dress with tonal button detailing. The strength of this look was in the silhouette that played with proportion in the cropped jacket and sleeves and defined waist. Sophisticatedly subtle with an edge, the look was styled with a classic black Chanel bag and tough-chic shoe boots.

Helen Lasichanh and Pharrell Williams: The power couple were well-coordinated; she in a characteristic, cropped Chanel jacket in multi-colour tweed mixed with the urban appeal of a sporty-luxe pair of gold grid shorts. Black tights, biker boots, and a white shoulder bag completed the split-personality look that somehow worked for Helen. As the face of the Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 collection, Pharrell obliged in regal style, rocking out a double-breasted, military-inspired coat with long white shorts and a captain’s hat. It was a performance-ready look, so it was only fitting that he later took the stage with Cara Delevingne to sing ‘CC The World.’
