It’s National Lipstick Day! Sure, why not.

Watch Cara Delevingne & Pharrell Star In Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Film

The Chanel mini-movie “Reincarnation” has finally arrived, starring Pharrell Williams, Cara Delevingne, and Geraldine Chaplin. The video, created and directed by Karl Lagerfeld, was put together to accompany the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Métiers d’art collection, and it’s pretty and all, but it’s also a bit…odd. Pharrell is apparently tight with the Chanel gang, and he wrote…

Side-Eye: Chanel Runway Show Concludes With Second Wave “Feminist Protest”

This is why people think fashion is stupid. Because designers like Karl Lagerfeld, who seriously could give two shits about women’s rights, co-opts the feminist movement as some sort of aesthetic inspiration for his fashion mood board and then parades an array of mostly white, skinny models down the runway holding ridiculous signs like “Free…

Chanel Uses Native American Headdresses In Dallas Fashion Show, Kind Of Apologizes

It seems like these days, it’s not a fashion show unless someone appropriates someone else’s culture and causes a PR fracas. Today’s guilty party: Chanel, whose Metiers d’Art show staged last week in Dallas showcased several models in Native American headdresses and clothes. According to New York magazine’s blog The Cut, the feathers sticking out…

Well Played: Jessica Biel Wears Chanel Like A Champ

I’m really feeling the love for Jessica Biel today, probably because I watched her 1998 classic “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” (also starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas!!!) over the weekend. What a film! So while I’m aboard the Biel train, I figure I better congratulate her on the extraordinarily well-played look she wore the Museum of…

Chanel Reigns Supreme In The Fashion Film Game With This Dreamy Video

Say what you will about (kooky/krazy/kreepy) Karl Lagerfeld, but when it comes to his creative directorial role at Chanel, the man is aces. Filmmaker Trevor Undi took Karl’s vision and interpreted it into this hypnotic 2 and a half-minute video comprised of clips from the French fashion house’s Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d’Art 2012/13 runway show, which…

Watch Karl Lagerfeld Chat Candidly With Harper’s Bazaar’s Laura Brown

Karl Lagerfeld isn’t the most politically correct fellow around, nor is he necessarily the most reasonable, but he is delightful in the way that many kooky, mildly racist old European men just are. He has terrible things to say about almost everyone, but he says them so straight-forwardly and in such bastardized English that it&#8217…

Karl Lagerfeld Taps Tilda Swinton To Front His Latest Chanel Couture Campaign

Karl Lagerfeld is one kooky old bigot (whom I happen to find quite endearing, though others may not agree and despite the fact that I am most definitely too fat for his tastes anyway), but he is now responsible for one of the best moves ever made in the history of celebrities-as-fashion faces. It involve…

Is This Keira Knightley Chanel Ad Unfit For The Eyes Of Children?

The British Advertising Standards Authority strikes again! The ad censorship watchdog, responsible for putting the kibosh on everything from scummy American Apparel ads to a photo of an underage Dakota Fanning holding a perfume bottle between her legs for Marc Jacobs, is cracking down on another campaign. Next up on the chopping block is a…

Style Stealer: Diane Kruger’s Prim Parisian Look

Would that we could all live like Diane Kruger — the woman speaks three languages, is a beautiful and talented actress and lives in Paris with her longtime beau Joshua Jackson. And she can somehow pull off wearing a beret without looking like a douchebag.  Kruger was spotted at Paris Fashion Week in this ensemble…

Want: An iPhone Case To Match Your Manicure

This is the coolest iPhone case I’ve seen in forever. And the best part? At only $15, it’s cheaper than a real bottle of Chanel nail polish. [The Custom Art]…

This Week In Style: Karl Lagerfeld Shows Lesbian Brides On The Runway

As the closer to the Chanel couture show, Karl Lagerfeld sent two wedding dress-clad female models down the runway hand in hand to show his support of marriage equality. The Associated Press was quick to coin the demonstration “lesbian couture,” and we want to know what the hell that means. [Fashionista]
As if…

Want To Broadcast Your Choupette Love To The World? So Do We — Here’s How!

When this delicious macaron from heaven, featuring a back-of-the-sweatshirt cameo by Choupette Lagerfeld, angel-winged its way onto our computer screens yesterday, I was beside myself. Firstly because Jessica beat me to the Choupette Watch punch (Jessica: I forgive, but I don’t forget), and secondly because hello, why do I not have a Choupette sweatshirt already hanging…

Choupette Is Back … Sort Of

Just last week, I was asking Rachel what Choupette has been up to lately. It’s been months since we’ve seen pictures of Karl Lagerfeld’s pampered kitten — last time was when she modeled in a 10-page editorial for V magazine with Laetitia Casta. But today the Internet Celebrity Cat Gods have sent us a macaron

Girl Talk: My Name Is Fancy, But Me? Not So Much

There are two main versions of my name story. The first is the one I like telling, which is that I was named after my grandmother’s best friend, Charlotte. It doesn’t make any sense, I know. But it’s better — although I suspect less accurate — than the second version, which is that my mother wa…

Karl Lagerfeld Has Free Reign At Chanel

“They let me do anything I want.”
― Is it any surprise that, while most other designers are subject to concerns of budgeting and other logical limitations, the House of Chanel (owned by the Wertheimer brothers) stops the inimitable Karl Lagerfeld at nothing? Suddenly, the spectacular runway shows ― the life-size plane in the Grand

Frisky Fun Time-Waster: Where’s Krazy Karl?

Color us weirdos, but we just love some Karl Lagerfeld. The head designer of Chanel is an inveterate freak, with his strangle-y leather gloves, diet of Diet Coke and cigarettes, and propensity for wearing sunglasses indoors (always).
Karl always sticks out in a crowd — or does he? See if you can spot Herr Lagerfeld…

Karl Lagerfeld Is Either Getting Progressively Weirder Or Just Screwing With Us

It is fairly common knowledge that getting older directly corresponds with getting weirder. Karl Lagerfeld was pretty fucking weird to begin with, but now, at 79, I think it’s safe to say that the longtime Chanel designer is the weirdest. The Kaiser may not consider himself a “political person,” but he did take some interest…

Dakota Fanning Wears Chanel (And Couture Cat Ears) For “InStyle” UK’s December Issue

It’s kind of crazy that Dakota Fanning is only 18; the girl has been around forever. The Fannings obviously don’t waste any time getting into the biz, but what I like about Dakota and her sister, Elle, is that they both seem incredibly smart and well-adjusted for the amount of fame they’ve experienced at such…

This Week In Style: Too-Skinny Minnie Makes Waves

The latest Disney star to come under fire isn’t Miley Cyrus or Demi Lovato — nope, it’s Minnie Mouse, who’s stirring up controversy over her gaunt appearance in this year’s Barneys holiday campaign. (At left: Minnie before her dramatic weight loss.) []
Kendall and Kylie Jenner have scored the gig of a lifetime:…
