Would You Tattoo Yourself With Double-C’s?

In our A.D.D.-addled generation, the ability to easily change your look — from your outfit to your hair — is necessary. So although tattoos have gained and maintained their popularity, there’s something stressful about the utter permanence of the design. Karl Lagerfeld has the answer. Remember when we spotted these temporary double-C tattoos on the…

Karl Lagerfeld Doesn’t Have An Intense Social Life

In a rare longer interview, Karl Lagerfeld opens up to CNN about some of the things you’ve always wondered about him, but maybe never had the guts to ask (well, if you happen to be a lucky fashion reporter). In this clip, Lagerfeld is preparing for a fashion show in China to celebrate the…

Quick Vid: Lara Stone Shows How (Not) To Rob Chanel Boutiques

Sometimes Karl Lagerfeld likes to make “art.” This means that he films something in black and white, tries to impersonate Truffaut, and adds a sultry girl dressed up in Chanel. His latest oeuvre, if you haven’t caught it yet, is a short called “Vol de Jour” and features model Lara Stone and some shaggy-haired…

American Apparel Wants You To Have A Hipster Manicure, Too

American Apparel is not content to simply dress your body, they want to paint your nails too. In addition to their spendy T-shirts and skanky jersey dresses, the store just launched a nail polish line. Welcome to the beauty world, AA. (What’s next? Home goods, a full beauty line, or fragrances?)…

Yes, Chanel No. 5 May Attract Men … With Oedipal Complexes

Scent is certainly a powerful element in generating attraction from the opposite sex, but when a new study came out this week pointing to Chanel No. 5 as the perfume most likely to seduce a man, we were doubtful. The idea that you could bag a guy with a specific perfume seems far-fetched as it…

Can Perfume Help You Find True Love (Or Just Get Laid)?

A new study says wearing a fragrance certainly helps make you more attractive to the opposite sex, and, arguably, the most legendary perfume of all time may also be the most seductive. In fact, one in 10 women even claim they met the man of their dreams while wearing Chanel No. 5.

Wait, really?

V Magazine Puts “Coco In Motion”

While Chanel has traditionally been one of those “serious” fashion houses, it seems like the label has been experiencing a playful re-branding thanks to those on the inside (see Karl Lagerfeld’s campy Spring/Summer 2010 runway show) and those on the outside who have taken a more lighthearted approach to the fashions. To wit, thi…

Costco, A Fashionista’s Dream Shopping Destination?

Costco used to be the ultimate shopping mecca for people who like to stock up on toilet paper, meat, and socks in bulk. But pretty soon the ladies-who-lunch crowd could become the giant retailer’s best customers, now that the cat is out of the Chanel bag. You see, the Costco store in East Harlem, which…

The Fashion Peacekeepers: How Can Lily Allen Not Be Chanel’s Muse?

There’s kind of a random op-ed in the Femail section of The Daily Mail today called “How Can Lily Allen Be Chanel’s Latest Fashion Muse?” that bemoans Karl Lagerfeld’s apparent fascination with the singer, whom the writer refers to as looking “worse for wear” in the past. It’s curious for several reasons: The paper i…

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread, And Make Sure It’s Fresh From Chanel

There’s a new online fashion magazine out there called Flamboyant, and its debut issue presents this “artistic” spread of designer-inspired loaves of bread. In the mix are carb-loaded replicas modeled after brands like Hermès, Valentino, and Vivienne Westwood. Normally, we squeal girlishly (um, you know, on the inside) at these types of conceptual fashion/food photographs.

Would You Wear These High-Heeled Clogs?

Depending on when you were born, you may remember when clogs, those wooden-soled shoes originally worn by fair-skinned milkmaids in Holland, were resurrected as favorable footwear for the fashion-forward in the ’70s and then again in the early ’90s. For those of you who may have missed the earlier waves (or just miss the earlier…

(Another) Quote Of The Day: Karl Lagerfeld Says It’s “Fat Mummies” Who Complain About Size 0 Models

“These are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly. [Fashion deals] with dreams and illusions, and no one wants to see round women.”—Chanel‘s Karl Lagerfeld wears on our last nerve in Focus magazine [Guardian UK]…

The Files Of Fashion Heartbreak: Vintage Chanel Costs More Than New Chanel

Where’s a Fairy Chanel-Mother when a girl needs one?

We jumped for joy when we saw the lot of vintage Chanel jewelry from What Goes Around Comes Around up for sale on Singer22.com. Chunky gold C’s on link chains and large medallion earrings are so perfectly Jackie O. Unfortunately, we should have known that…

Forget Jade Nail Polish, It’s All About Gray

Chanel’s Jade nail polish is already so over. Sure, the color is finally hitting beauty counters now that it’s Fall, and nails are getting their first taste of the perfect green hue. But after the Spring 2010 show, gray is the new jade.

On the runway, Karl Lagerfeld not only brought the barn

Can Temporary Tattoos Be Elegant?

In fashion, it’s all about the details — from the choice of buttons to the hemline — and designer Karl Lagerfeld is a master of the little things. While much of the talk about the Chanel spring 2010 show has been about the barnyard setting and Lily Allen‘s live performance, we noticed an interesting-yet-subtle element:…
