It’s Official: Blake Lively and Chanel Collaboration

From ElleUK:

Chanel has confirmed that the star of it’s next ad campaigns will be Blake Lively.

It’s been something of an open secret for a month now but now we can officially confirm that Gossip Girl star Blake Lively has been picked by Karl Lagerfeld to be the new Chanel ambassador.

Lively is set to star in ads for the new Mademoiselle bag, and the pictures, which will be unveiled in April, have already been snapped. The actress-turned-model got to pose on the iconic staircase in Coco Chanel’s Rue du Cambon studio – and, according to WWD, she was pretty thrilled by the whole experience. ‘How did Cinderella feel when she slipped on the glass slipper? How did Snow White feel when she met her Prince Charming?,’ she gushed. ‘Dream come true is an understatement. I can say that I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl around.’

Blake’s appointment hasn’t come as a great surprise – ever since she was first spotted front row at the Chanel couture show early last year, she and Karl have struck up a friendship, and she’s also been spotted in an impresesive line-up of the label’s dresses. What with this and her friendship with Christian Louboutin, we could find ourselves getting quite envious of the lucky Miss Lively…

Chanel To Sell Runway Inspired Temporary Tattoos

Temporary tattoos are no longer just fun for little kids. Chanel has decided to launch Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel Temporary Skin Art, a line of temporary tattoos based on designs created by Peter Philips for the Paris Runway Show for Spring 2010.

These intricate designs have proved themselves successful on the runway. From necklaces to bracelets and all the way down to anklets, these tattoos are an interesting way to not-so-permanently brand yourself with the much appreciated Chanel logo. And at $75 for 55 designs, it’s a more affordable way of showing brand loyalty… at least, while it lasts.

And at $75 for 55 different designs, this is a recession-friendly way to wear Chanel this spring.

Tell us: What do you think of this new trend?

First look at Vanessa Paradis in new Chanel campaign

They say lipstick sales are “recession proof” – in fact – sales usually go up. Why? Because it’s an inexpensive way to look beautiful and freshen up your look. Chanel is taking note and bringing lipstick back to a young customer base that is infatuated with lip gloss. This March, Chanel is introducing Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour – and bringing back the lost art of sexily applying your lipstick.

Vanessa Paradis, the French actress (and Johnny Depp’s leading lady) is the face of the campaign and this is not the first time Paradis has worked with Chanel. Andrea D’Avack, president of Chanel Fragrance & Beauté, stated: “Vanessa has been very linked to the house over the years, and she represents a young, sophisticated woman who we also believe will be the consumer for Rouge Coco.” Print and TV ads have been shot though it’s still unclear whether TV spots will be placed in the U.S.

The Rouge Coco line has 30 shades and each hue is named after an influential part of Coco Chanel’s life – Camelia, Mademoiselle, and Paris – to name a few. The shades come in one of four color families Roses-Pinks; Reds-Corals; Violets-Berries, and Neutrals-Browns and will be available in different global markets.

Like many Chanel cosmetics, the packaging takes it’s cue from Chanel’s history with black and gold detailing, interlocking C’s and the Chanel name embossed into each lipstick bullet. The Rouge Coco collection debuts in March with each lipstick retailing for $30 at fine retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Chanel.com.
