Have you seen the latest issue of American Vogue? Rihanna, in Chanel, looks ravishing on this (long-overdue if I may add) cover.
I’m still recovering from Lady Gaga’s marvelous March issue (one of my faves from Vogue as of late). Whoever spiked the watercooler on the 12th floor deserves a gold medal. One smashing issue after another, it’s obvious that they’ve been drinking some major Kool-Aid.
Can’t wait to get my hands on this one. Big kudos to Anna and her team. High-fives all around!
Chanel Spring Summer Backstage – Hair, Make-up and Model Overload!
Here’s the scene backstage (hair & make-up) at Chanel spring summer 2011. The majority of the girls had a super straight, super sleek pony tail. As for make-up, a bit of dark eyeshadow and eyeliner to emphasize the eyes, a little bit of blush and nothing else.
Two days before their spectacular show, the wonderful folks at Chanel emailed to ask if I was interested going backstage before the show. Here’s the catch: my call time was 7AM, as in seven o’clock in the morning.
Ladies and gays, I present you “Knight Moves” from Chilly Gonzales’ new album “Ivory Tower”. It won’t be released until September 14 August 23 (at Colette). Here’s a preview of the track… Trust me, I’ve searched long and hard and I still couldn’t find the full version.
Listen to it and tell me what you think. I’m gonna terminate our friendship if you don’t.
I guess we’re all gonna have to wait until the album is released. Can’t wait to buy it.
The Scene at Chanel Haute Couture Fall Winter 2010-2011
Ahhh Chanel. The crown jewel of haute couture collections. Chanel is Chanel; it’s the grand-daddy of shows in Paris. I squealed with delight when the lovely folks at Chanel asked for my mailing address in Paris. I had no idea what they are about to send me. It could be anything, you know? Mailing list? Promotional material? A new fragrance? Lookbooks? Nope, they sent me my first haute couture show invitation. Although I’ve done the NY/Europe menswear and womenswear circuit for a few seasons, I’m still a couture virgin.
