Well Played: Keira Knightley’s Not-So-Typical Little Black Dress

I guess if you’re going to an event called the Chanel Little Black Jacket dinner, you might want to wear black to fit in. And so, Keira Knightley wore what looks at first glance like a standard retro ’50s frock. But turn her around and you see the true magic of the garment. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

Watch: Karl Lagerfeld Meets A Cat Named After Him On French TV

Just one time won’t do; you’re going to have to watch this video at least twice before you can even begin to comprehend what’s going on … and maybe not even then. Karl Lagerfeld graced French television Monday night as a guest on talk show Le Grand Journal and, naturellement, the subject arose of le

The Beautiful And The Boring From Chanel Fine Jewelry Anniversary Party

Let’s talk about Places I Wish I Had Been Last Night: Chanel fêted the 80th anniversary of their “Bijoux De Diamants” collection here in New York and, as one can always anticipate from an occasion hosted by the illustrious French fashion house, a host of starlets and socialites alike showed up in their Lagerfeld finest.

What’s The Mystery That Has Brad Pitt Banished To The Corner?

Have you ever wished you could hear Brad Pitt whisper sweet nothings to you, or anyone really, just once? (I would totally listen to a taping of Brad and Angelina’s pillow talk, wouldn’t you?) Well, you’re in luck, because Chanel is making your dreams come true (kind of like they always do, then cruelly price…

Karl Knows Klass: Operation Lagerfeld Is Now In Motion

Attention, wanton young ladies everywhere (shit, are they talking about me?): Chanel is coming for you, and it isn’t going to be pretty. Well, maybe not quite, but police in the British town of Bolton are laying down the law with Operation Lagerfeld, a zero-tolerance plan targeting teenage girls “drinking in the streets in the…

Karl Lagerfeld Wants You To Know What He Really Meant To Say About Pippa

“I didn’t mean that! I only meant I don’t think her makeup is right; she has a roundish face and round eyes and she should pick another makeup for the eyes.”
Karl Lagerfeld attempts to clarify his comments regarding Pippa Middleton after they were apparently misconstrued. The Kaiser professed not long ago that…

First Look: Keira Knightley Wears A Weird Chanel Armwarmer For October’s “Vogue”

Isn’t it nice to see Keira Knightley’s pretty face adorning multiple magazine covers rather than someone like, say, Kim Kardashian? I jest, kind of, and I do know a few people who maintain that Keira is only marginally more talented than the reality star in question … but regardless, she’s definitely more likable. I’ll be…

Watch: Chanel Goes Dada With A New Teaser For Rouge Allure Lipstick

In the vast, ever-evolving cosmos of luxury makeup, Chanel unfailingly offers some of the very best — and they come with gorgeous artsy videos, to boot. The brand has been teasing us with short promotional flicks advertising their upcoming Rouge Allure reformulation for some time, and what this new video lacks in the hypnotic factor…

Choupette Lagerfeld Is Back With A Photoshoot And More Details From Her Luxurious Life

And just when you thought you had heard the last from me regarding Choupette Lagerfeld, you were so woefully wrong! Allow me to explain myself: cat love is my number one interest and priority above all other things, and I also really adore the kooky Chanel designer’s flippantly offensive attitude, despite my awareness of the…

Karl Gets Kreative With Shu Uemura To Announce The Birth Of Mon Shu Girl

Well, that was quick! A little over a month ago, my personal Jesus, Karl Lagerfeld, announced plans to consummate the love that we’ve always known existed between him and Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura. Karl’s been known to use Shu products in an unorthodox way: rather than sketch out his sublime designs for Chanel i…

Move Over, Blake Lively, There’s A New Chanel Mews In Town … I Mean, Muse

Choupette Lagerfeld is my literal spirit animal in that she is, in fact, an animal, and also happens to really speak to my spirit, so there you have it. Just when I thought the gloriousness quotient of Karl’s legendary Siamese had finally been capped due to overload, what with recent reports of a photoshoot and…

Watch: A Mesmerizing New Short Film From Chanel Makeup’s Peter Philips

While there are many things definitively Chanel that I don’t exactly promote — tweed, for instance — I almost always agree with Peter Philips. The global creative director of Chanel Makeup since 2008, Philips is responsible for crazy-coveted Le Vernis nail lacquer shades like Particulière, which sparked the frenzy for taupe-grey (or “greige”) polish back…

Well Played: Diane Kruger Kills It At Chanel

Diane Kruger might be the only woman in the world who can wear a jaunty little pageboy cap paired with a party dress, and make it look good. Here she is, at the Chanel couture show, looking immaculately turned out. And, she’s got the best accessory ever — Joshua Jackson on her arm.

All Our Favorite Looks From Paris Couture Week

It’s Fall/Winter 2012 Couture Week in Paris, my favorite series of collections. Couture Week, like other fashion weeks, happens twice a year, and is when designers break out the big guns — garments can cost in the tens of thousands of dollars. Couture collectors are willing to pony up the big bucks because couture collectio…

The Cat’s Out Of The Bag! The Choupette Purse, Coming Soon To A Chanel Store Near You

I used to think I was the craziest cat lover alive, but Karl Lagerfeld is giving me a serious run for my money. The Chanel designer, exalted for his stern, stubborn approach to fashion, diet, not getting massages, and basically everything else ever, has been a bit more subdued since he acquired the famously beautiful…

Karl Lagerfeld Announces A Collaborative Makeup Line With Japanese Brand Shu Uemura

I know, I talk about Karl Lagerfeld all day long, but it’s so hard not to when he can’t stop, won’t stop saying and doing things that baffle, offend, and inspire, often all at once. It’s safe to say that you can file this next Karl update under something that’s legitimately newsworthy, and not just…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Chanel’s “Little Black Jacket” Exhibit Opening

Chanel events always, without fail, draw an extraordinarily dressed crowd — Karl Lagerfeld, after all, only associates with the most fabulous of people (and yes, the same standard applies to his choice in pets). The Parisian fashion house feted the opening of a 113-photo exhibit to preface Lagerfeld’s upcoming photo book, a collaboration with former…

Karl Lagerfeld’s Siamese Cat Choupette Has More Personal Maids Than You

Everyone I know is probably sick to death of hearing me talk about Karl Lagerfeld, because he is a bastard, but who could ever get tired of hearing about his Siamese cat, Choupette? Not us. Especially when he goes on at length in interviews about how spoiled she is. WWD sought out Karl at the…

Karl Lagerfeld Hates Massages, Is Surprisingly In The Know About Hollywood Scandal

Karl Lagerfeld is known as much for making bizarre and inflammatory comments as he is for designing clothing. Let’s recap: Adele is a little too fat for his liking. He loves Dominique Strauss-Kahn. He doesn’t tolerate ugly children. He only likes high-class escorts, and doesn’t like sleeping with people he really loves. He thinks the…

Well Played: Cécile Cassel At The Showing Of Chanel’s Cruise Collection

Cécile Cassel is an unfamiliar name in the States, but as the daughter of the late Jean-Pierre Cassel, the young actress’s patrician French pedigree is kind of a big deal. Her brother has a larger American presence — you may recall his role as the ballet teacher Thomas Leroy in “Black Swan” or perhaps hi…
