2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Chanel Artists Dinner was hosted at Balthazar in New York City on Monday (April 20), where the fashion house’s famous fans gathered to raise a toast.

Zoe Kravitz: While it was lovely to see the actress’s softer side in this Chanel ensemble consisting of a pink cropped sweater and flirty, flared patterned skirt, I simply couldn’t get past those white pumps.

Cobie Smulders: I loved Cobie’s Chanel outing which artfully combined patterns in a painterly, watercolour top and tweed trousers. Her ‘Ladies First’ handbag put the final tongue-in-cheek zing into the look.

Michiel Huisman: He wore a navy Jack Wills suit and Haspel Clothing Hawaiian-print shirt with wife Tara Elders in an army-green dress and black shoulder bag. While it’s hard to argue with the actor’s handsome gaze, I simply don’t understand this island-inspired look on this occasion.

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.’

Princess Caroline of Hanover & Charlotte Casiraghi In Chanel Couture – Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Princess Caroline of Hanover & Charlotte Casiraghi In Chanel Couture - Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Charlotte Casiraghi and Princess Caroline of Hanover attended the La Bal de la Rose 2015 in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation, where they kept good company with designer Karl Lagerfeld at Sporting Monte-Carlo on Saturday (March 28) in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

Charlotte Casiraghi: Donning a pink sequin dress, embroidered with a black sequined trim, from the Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2015 collection, she was youthful elegance personified. While the styling wasn’t so inspiring with a black satin clutch and black pumps, this wasn’t the place for the runway’s mesh gloves and boots.

Princess Caroline of Hanover: As president of the Princess Grace Foundation, H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover was regally attired in a long ivory silk satin Chanel Haute Couture dress with strass embroideries, accessorized with a long cream scarf and sparkling jewels.

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture – Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Lily Allen In Chanel Couture - Le Bal de la Rose 2015

Lily Allen performed during the Rose Ball 2015 in aid of the Princess Grace Foundation at Sporting Monte-Carlo on Saturday (March 28) in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

Sporting new dyed blonde tresses, the British singer wore a custom-made fringed Chanel Couture pink tulle gown with embroidered with silver sequins and pink pearls, but it’s the pink velvet coat with a collar embroidered with camellias which really made this look stand out.

Call me crazy, but I do find myself admiring the handiwork of Karl Lagerfeld’s pink coat.

It takes a certain kind of person to pull off such a creation, and Lily totally did justice to the look no matter how crazy it may appear.

Below is the sketch by Karl Lagerfeld and some pictures of the making of Lily Allen’s outfit.

Chanel Fall 2015 Front Row

Chanel Fall 2015 Front Row

Chanel’s front row wasn’t as jam-packed as usual, with notable stars including Li Yuchun (aka Chris Lee), Florence Welch and Poppy Delevingne taking their seats for the French brand’s Fall 2015 show on Tuesday (March 10).

Li Yuchun: The Asian star took a typically mannish approach wearing a head-to-toe Spring 2015 look incorporating stripes. The only things I covet here are the two-tone brogues. I could’ve got on board with the blazer sans white overlay.

Florence Welch: Also shunning Chanel’s more ladylike offerings was Florence Welch, whose pink suede jacket and trousers from the Spring 2015 collection of course had a distant boho tone, especially when styled with that wide-brimmed hat.

Poppy Delevingne: The socialite showcased her best asset – her legs – wearing a Chanel Resort 2015 gold tweed tunic to which she added black lace shorts. This enabled her to perfectly style her look with black accessories, which included a Chanel Plexiglas clutch.

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.
