Karl Lagerfeld channeled “Mary, Queen of Scots” as his inspiration for CHANEL Pre-Fall 2013 Collection. Stating that “I’m in love with this collection” would be a understatatement. You all know my affinity for period films so this collection is near and dear to my heart. Mr. Lagerfeld also drew inspiration from Coco Chanel’s love for Scottish tweed, which was introduced to her by Duke of Westminster. We’ve all heard or read about the love stories between CHANEL and the legendary Duke. This collection is fit for Royalty! Here are my top 10 favorite looks!

No one does luxury better than CHANEL! I had the pleasure of attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly minted CHANEL Beauty Shop at Saks Fifth Avenue. The classic iconic CHANEL touch is weaved throughout the entire shop, even down to the tweed chairs. The open concept allows you to really discover the beauty of CHANEL’s cosmetic products. The skin care section brilliantly displays the many options CHANEL offers in their skin care line. My favorite space in the shop is the glorious perfume/cologne bar. The sweet little CHANEL potions are all lined up for her or him to test out. I think I might have found my new favorite men’s – cologne CHANEL por monsieur. I couldn’t get enough of the smell, I practically inhaled it.
I was treated to mini-makeover by one of CHANEL’s talented make-up artists. Paris was super fun to chat with and he really hooked up my face. I left the store feeling fresh and glamorous!
Special thanks to Ryan Williams for inviting me to this lovely event! I always have such a great time when inside the four walls of Saks. The Saks Team has a way of making you feel like family, well royal family that is.
I strongly encourage you all to stop by this piece of beauty heaven, the next time you’re in San Francisco. Trust me its worth it!
Marie Antoinette eat your heart out! I have a strong urge to nosh on sweet petit little cakes when viewing these deliciously brilliant photos! Backstage photos of the CHANEL Resort Collection for 2013 have surfaced on the net and I can’t stop gwaking at them. The color palette is so soft and decadent. The models graced the runway like bejeweled macaroons. All these food references are really starting to increase my appetite for something sweet!
This Collection Show is a must watch!!! I call all Haute Couture shows "collection shows". The word fashion show has been watered down and is just about applied to anything to involving women and a runway. I must confess I'm bit strange when it comes to describing Parisian Haute Couture collections that show during Paris Fashion Week. So "collection show" it is. I could gush and get all mushy about how in love I am with CHANEL spring/summer 2012 Collection but then sometimes seeing is better than reading!
Chanel is my Mona Lisa …..priceless and irreplaceable. I shutter to think what the fashion world would have been like if Coco Chanel never became a designer. I actually cried when the orchestra began to play and models started walking the runway. This has to be my favorite collection for Spring/Summer 2011. Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld always staying true to Chanel's roots produced an exquisitely sophisticated, romantic, classic collection! Since, my salary doesn't allow for any Chanel pieces at the moment. I will have to refer back to this video for inspiration!
Oh, if every women owned a CHANEL bag…..the world would be a better place! I discovered the land of gold about a year ago when I came across a website that sells authentic CHANEL handbags. The prices are still pretty steep even for a gently used bag but, the rarity of some of the bags is worth the hefty sticker price. Check out Luxury Malleries !
