Crystal Renn’s Face—Not Body—Stars In New Chanel Campaign

Thanks to a few Photoshopping scandals and the still-hot debate about larger sizes in fashion, it’s nearly impossible to talk about Crystal Renn without talking body image. The plus-size/curvy/whatever-you-want-to-call-her model just landed this Chanel campaign, which shows only her face. For Renn, this work with the brand points to a positive shift in fashion aesthetics. She tells Fashionista, “I think the fashion industry is changing and is more open to a new ideal … It’s about a personality and a moment captured..it’s not about body size it’s about talent and effort…I hope the industry sees this [campaign] as an example of that.” Keep reading »

Quotable: Audrina Patridge Has A $5,000 Chanel Surfboard And You Don’t

“The most expensive thing I bought recently was a $5,000 Chanel surfboard. I’m using it as décor in my bedroom until I get really good at surfing. It’s too pretty to risk chipping it.”

Elle Creative Director Joe Zee Wanders New York City In A Chanel Fur Suit

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Joe Zee. But if you watch “The City,” Elle magazine’s creative director comes across as fun but a little bit of a hard-nose. Here, though, in this hilarious video, we get to see another side of Zee, making fun of himself. For some reason, Zee decided it would be a good idea to meander through the streets of Manhattan during a heatwave looking for the zoo and wearing a giant faux-fur suit from Chanel’s fall-winter runway show. It’s Yeti Zee! Watch as Joe sunbathes his fur, gets a hairball, and tells everyone his hair is couture. [Racked] Keep reading »

Martin Scorsese Is Directing Chanel’s New Commercial

Apparently Karl Lagerfeld‘s artsy, bizarre little romps in the land of cinema and short videos just won’t cut it when it comes to marketing Chanel‘s new Bleu de Chanel men’s fragrance. The company has enlisted the help of Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese for that task. The commercial — we feel like we’re cheapening it by calling it that — airs in September, but we’re having fun imagining what it will look like now. Because Scorsese is known for gorgeous but rough movies, like “Gangs of New York” and “The Aviator,” we can’t imagine this Chanel commercial will be standard, pretty fare.

Quick Video: Karl Lagerfeld Has “Shopping Fever”


Hello kids, and welcome back to the weird world of Karl Lagerfeld shorts. “Shopping Fever,” his latest concoction, follows in the vein of his previous shorts in that it’s more or less Chanel porn with a limited storyline. That said, Abby Lee and Dree Hemingway look gorgeous and we’d happily do all sort of filthy things to Lagerfeld lapdog Baptiste Giabiconi, who plays the girls’ valet. [Style.com] Keep reading »

Anna Mouglalis Calls Coco Chanel A Misogynist

Anna Mouglalis, the latest actress to play Coco Chanel, thinks the designer was a bit of a misogynist. “She is recognized as a huge feminist, but most of the things she did, she did for herself and not for women in general,” Mouglalis told Vogue. “I would even push it further, thinking she was more of a misogynist than a feminist, since she only had male friends,” said the actress and former model. Mouglalis’ turn as Coco in the biopic Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky is a rather dark look at Chanel’s affair with the married Stravinsky and Kaiser Lagerfeld is none-too-pleased. Apparently he has said that her performance in the film “has no relation to Mouglalis’ talent for other roles.” Harsh words for someone who once hired Mouglalis to model for the brand.
