Chanel Spring Summer 2011 Backstage

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.

Edie Campbell Backstage at Chanel Spring Summer 2011

I know it’s not often I go gaga over ‘new’ girls but I’m obsessed with Edie Campbell. I took some snaps of her backstage at the Chanel spring/summer 2011 show.

Chanel Spring Summer 2011 Video – Preview

Here’s the view from my seat at the spectacular Chanel spring/summer 2011 ready to wear show earlier this morning.

I have so many special photos for you. I was invited by the very kind folks at Chanel early, hence my 7AM call time instead of going to the show at 10:30AM.

Chilly Gonzales – Knight Moves [listen now or else]

Chilly Gonzales – Knight Moves

It’s not an every day occurrence that I get chills running down my spine from listening a track. Remember the video I took during Chanel FW2010 haute couture?

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.

Amazing, no?

I guess we’re all gonna have to wait until the album is released. Can’t wait to buy it.

Words of Wisdom from Karl Lagerfeld

Words of Wisdom from Karl Lagerfeld

The folks at Chanel recently interviewed Karl Lagerfeld after his fall/winter 2010 haute couture show.

Fashion is about going ahead, not about the memory. When people want to be liked for what they did, they should stop.

Karl’s intellect and wit is UNMATCHABLE. He’s a true genius. Always a pleasure to watch his interviews.

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.

Until now.
(Well, until last week lol)

How funny. I saw Jessica "Don't Call Me Latina" Alba at Chanel Haute Couture in Paris just a few days ago…

Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2010 – Sous Le Signe Du Lion

Here’s a video I took before the show. Look at the enormous lion, with one of its paws resting on top of a giant pearl, at the Grand Palais.
