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.’

Chanel’s Spring 2015 ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’ Campaign

chanel-3girls-3bags-vanessa-paradis-girl

Following the announcement back in January, Chanel’s Spring 2015 handbag campaign, ‘3 Girls, 3 Bags’, has finally been released.

The black-and-white campaign, which was photographed by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, features American actress Kristen Stewart, French actress Vanessa Paradis and model Alice Dellal, all of whom have posed for Chanel in the past.

Vanessa Paradis posed naked for Karl wearing only a Chanel pearl necklace and the new ‘Girl’ Chanel handbag inspired by the emblematic jacket of the house, which will no doubt become an instant classic.

Chanel’s two iconic handbags are represented by two of its newest ambassadors, Alice Dellal and Kristen Stewart.

Alice continues to be the face of the ‘Boy’ bag, which is particularly suited to her tougher, edgy, androgynous style, while Kristen lends her face to one of the French label’s enduring classics, the quilted ‘11.12’ handbag, looking rather smart yet older than her tender years in this campaign.

Front Row @ Chanel Spring 2015 Couture
Kristen Stewart, Alice Dellal, and Vanessa Paradis held court at the Chanel show as part of Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2015, which was hosted at the Grand Palais on Tuesday (January 27) in Paris, France. As the faces of the new Chanel handbag campaign, each of the girls with their individual style represents one of the brand’s iconic purse pieces, including the 11.12 by Karl Lagerfeld, the Boy Chanel, and the Girl.

Kristen Stewart: Taking a sporty-chic route, the actress wore a white A-line dress with black piping. Chunky, block-heeled booties, a chain necklace and an ear cuff completed her look, yet it was really her side-swept, wavy crop that injected another level of edge to this safer showing.

Alice Dellal: The model’s cropped jacket put a directional twist on traditional plaid while high-waist, wide-leg trousers provided the right counterpoint to the silhouette of the top half of her look, which she styled with a black Boy Chanel bag—naturally.

Vanessa Paradis
: Taking the mannish styling one notch up, the actress suited up in a cropped black tweed blazer worn over a semi-sheer white blouse that gave off a Victorian vibe. Barely there makeup and effortless waves were the natural pairing to this classic Parisian look.

Chanel Fall 2014 Front Row

Chanel Fall 2014 Front RowHyper-luxe, double ‘C’-stocked supermarket aisles masqueraded as the super-chic catwalk for the Chanel Fall 2014 show, held during Paris Fashion Week today (March 4). Designer Karl Lagerfeld’s runway revelry at the magnificently transformed Grand Palais knew no bounds, as vivaciously clad models carted shopping baskets and browsed the canned goods. So it’s no surprise the Chanel-clad pretties sitting front row were having tons of fun, observing the shopaholic spectacle.

Rihanna
: Looking lovely in lilac, the songstress showed off a demure bouclé? dress with a cropped top and waist-cinching middle section. Adding her signature edge, she punched up the prim purple with a matching, gun-embellished bum bag and sneakers, alongside a gigantic, pearl-like wrist cuff and ’50s-inspired oversized, cat-eye shades.

Keira Knightley: Following the hourglass silhouette, Keira likewise flaunted her trim middle via a chic black-and-white number, made charming with cap sleeves and a bow detail on the cropped top, and accessorized with a tiny quilted Chanel, chain-strap handbag. Gold metallic pumps gave the monochrome look a shiny pop of attitude.
