There was a sea of Chanel ensembles to be seen and admired from the guests at the Chanel Artists Dinner, hosted on Monday (April 24) during the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
Katie Holmes: Despite this being a sheer Chanel look, it manifested a casual, feminine charm. But I think it was Katie’s new, wavy bob along with metallic accessories that worked wonders to keep the look on fresh ground.
Dianna Agron: Classic Chanel tweed was turned on its head in this Spring 2017 ensemble that came alive with a holographic array of hues. The cropped top attempted to counterbalance the looser proportions of the jacket and skirt. I just wish her shoes had been as bold as her fuchsia eyeliner.
Dree Hemingway: Reflecting Dree’s free-spirited style, this Chanel look likewise paid homage to the spirited Gabrielle Coco Chanel herself. Sure, it was a quirky combination with the embellished sweater, girly pink skirt and granny-chic shoes. But, Dree has the presence to pull it off; I just wish she had done something more with her hair and makeup.
Ruth Wilson: Embellishment took top billing in this Chanel Spring 2017 ensemble with a fully loaded, dazzling skirt. The closed-toe heels and shrug jacket seemed to just get in the way, though.
Alice Eve: Prim and proper took on new meaning in this decorative Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 bow-accented turtleneck paired with a dimensionally embroidered, floral skirt for a touch of whimsy.
Jessica Hart: I’m sure you remember Naomie Harris previously wore this Chanel Spring 2017 frock, as its neon-pink, mod sass is hard to forget. But the dress couldn’t have been interpreted more differently by Jessica, as she injected an unabashed rocker edge into any classic appeal it may have retained. Look no further than her mohawk-inspired braids and patent booties for proof.
Christina Ricci: I don’t love the use of white pumps on most occasions, but I’m willing to look past them here as Christina impressed me so much with this sleek little number styled with classic pearls, a Chanel perfume bag, and that hot coral-orange lip.
Andie MacDowell: Every black Chanel suit needs a touch of whimsy, and that’s exactly what the Chanel ‘Keyboard’ clutch provided here for a look that was classic, cool, and most importantly, effortless.
Zosia Mamet: I tried to find some saving grace to this Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 look. But between the ill-fitting sweater, the crumpled trousers, the silly hot-pink sneaker-like shoes, and the random gold handbag, I’m at a loss.
