The CHANEL ‘Mademoiselle Privé’ exhibition opening event was held in Hong Kong on Thursday (January 11), with some of the brand’s biggest fans wearing their chicest CHANEL looks.
Pharrell Williams: The CHANEL ambassador and face of the ‘Gabrielle’ bag performed during the event. But, before taking to the stage, he was on the red carpet with wife, Helen Lasichanh, donning a dark-blue knitted pullover styled with a blue cap—both from the Métiers d’Art Paris-Hambourg 2017/18 collection. As can be expected with a Pharrell look, it was really his styling that brought even more personality. The ripped jeans being the rebellious twist, with CHANEL boots and accessories including a CHANEL Fine Jewelry ‘Plume’ brooch rounding out the look with plenty of flair.
Helen Lasichanh: Coordinating with her rapper hubby, Helen wore a dark-navy knitted mini dress from the Métiers d’Art Paris-Hambourg 2017/18 collection. She styled the super-short look with necessary tonal tights and CHANEL tall boots alongside a white CHANEL handbag and CHANEL Fine Jewelry ‘Coco Crush’ earrings.
Kaia Gerber: The perfect combination of sweet innocence and sultry sass, this short white Spring 2018 dress was the embodiment of girly allure. I love the modern juxtaposition between the ruffled lace and the sleek, embroidered sequins. CHANEL clear boots added a quirky, style-forward finish to the look.
Soojoo Park: A study in classic black-and-white was the M.O. for the American-Korean model. Yet her frilly white blouse and black leather skirt from the Spring 2018 collection went far beyond traditional territory with a turn towards edgier appeal. CHANEL two-tone pumps, handbag, and accessories brought back that classic, ladylike aesthetic.
Alma Jodorowsky: Although she’s a CHANEL Ambassador, Alma opted for a less adventurous look, riffing on a classic tweed dress with this blue and green version from the Spring 2018 collection. CHANEL accessories, including a matching green bag, and nude-and-black pumps completed the look. However, I wondered why not opt for a matching green or blue shoe, too.
Ann Hsu: The Taiwanese actress kept it soft and subtle—until her CHANEL vivid-orange platforms came into view for a jolt of colour and attitude. Still, I liked the more delicate charm of this tweedy, white and light-pink short jumpsuit from the Spring 2018 Act 1 Ready-to-Wear collection. CHANEL Fine Jewelry ‘Coco Crush’ rings, a ‘Boyfriend’ watch, and ‘Coco Crush’ earrings rounded out the look.
