Preview This: Lagerfeld’s Sexy New Short, “Remember Now”

The news today from fashion giant Karl Lagerfeld: The Kaiser directed a short film, and the preview has just hit the web (the man sure does know how to build anticipation). Titled "Remember Now," the 48-second spot above doesn't give away a lot in plot detail, but our guess would be that there isn't much…

Sunglasses That Double As A Wha?

Everyone loves a product with multiple uses. Lip gloss with SPF is awesome for keeping your pucker hydrated and safe from summer rays. Shampoo and conditioner in one is key for those who are just too lazy or busy to extend their shower time. But the latest in double duty is just a teensy bit…

Click & Strip Model Gets Down To Her Skivvies On Command

Looks like Karl Lagerfeld has a new favorite lady in Emily DiDonato. The two are working on a sassy little project for fancy swimwear line Eres in which Emily starts out dressed in full Chanel and ends up looking adorable in nothing more than an Eres swimsuit. Half naked models are nothing new, but her…

Chanel’s Next Big Thing: Black, Gold And Velvet

Surely you remember the craze that was Chanel Black Satin nail polish. Lindsay Lohan seemed to lead the way, and next thing you knew, every actress under the age of 30 was wearing the color on the red carpet (for better, or in many cases, for much, much worse). The shade sold out quickly, causing…

Quotable: Karl Lagerfeld Has Nothing But Respect For Porn Stars

"I admire porn … And I personally only like high-class escorts. I don’t like sleeping with people I really love. I don’t want to sleep with them because sex cannot last, but affection can last forever. I think this is healthy. And for the way the rich live, this is possible. But the other world,…

Is This The New Face Of Chanel?

There's a rumor flying around that the fashion world is calling "huge." After Tommy Ton of style blog Jak & Jil got a supposedly juicy tip—"I received some news tonight that is going to SHAKE the fashion world in the next two days. CRAZY!!!"—the speculation commenced. The general consensus: That Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz would…

That Iceberg At Chanel Was Real!?

Maybe we were a little slow to realize this, but apparently that huge iceberg in the middle of Chanel's runway was in fact a real iceberg. Imported from Sweden. (Seriously, where was our Chanel Paris Fashion Week invite this year? We're missing extremely important news here, people!) We're actually not surprised that Uncle Karl would…

Hair Model Citizen: Punk Rock Strawberry Blonde

Now, this is not a hair color that we would normally advocate. It's a little red, a little blond, and the cut itself is all over the place. That said, Micky Green is an Australian pop star making an appearance at the Chanel show, so when it comes to being the right hair on the…

Performance Art Protester Crashes Lagerfeld Fashion Show

During Paris Fashion Week, the Jardin des Tuileries is a prime people-gazing spot where street-style photographers flock to snap the chic-set exiting the tents. But when a performance artist headed there on Sunday, getting recognized by the Sartorialist wasn't on her agenda. Rather, she came in silent protest of the industry's promotion of too-thin beauty…

Style Buzz: Chanel Tats & Grace Jones Is Still Fly

Unsurprisingly, designer Phillip Lim has an awesome apartment replete with bell jars, fur touches and a stuffed crane. [The New York Times]Alexander McQueen's fashion show has been canceled and replaced with a presentation/memorial on March 9 and 10. Photographers are banned from the presentation, but McQueen's people promise to provide pics. [Fashionologie]61-year-old former model Grace…

It’s All About The Silver Nails

While Erin has been obsessing over the sparkly silver tights at Chanel's Spring 2010 Couture show, that wasn't the only metallic moment that Karl Lagerfeld had in mind. We'll leave the fingerless Michael Jackson gloves alone for a second to talk about nail hues. A few seasons ago, editors and fashion fans fell in love…

Can Couture Ever Get Hip And Modernized?

The problem with couture has existed pretty much since its inception. How much do we value fashion as an art, and at what point does couture's importance cease if it remains not only elitist, but completely impractical? (Unless, of course, you're keen on doing your grocery shopping in 40-pound ballgowns.) With an injured global economy…

Score: Chanel-Esque Silver Tights For Under $10

As we bask in the afterglow of couture fashion week, we can't stop obsessing over Lagerfeld's massively triumphant Chanel collection. Those classic, pastel suits -- mousse pinks and baby blues and lavenders -- looked as delicious as a bag of robin's egg candies (or in this case, more like a box of macaroons from a…

Alexa Chung’s Escaped From The Amish!

Is it just us, or is the usually adorable Alexa Chung looking more appropriate for a day in Amish country rather than front row at the Chanel couture show? [We know, we know, they're Chanel clogs, but still ... -- Editor] [Elle UK]…
