Leo, tell me some Gossip!

I have learned many things from watching the Chanel Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 show.

1. Mid-length dresses will be back in force.

2. The same applies for mid-calf boots (don't really know how I feel about these).

3. Sequins played a major factor last night. I love you Karl!

4. Is it just me, or does the Chanel show resemble a Gossip Girl closet? What do you think? I think that there was dresses in the show last night with Blair and Serena's names written all over them. Perhaps Gossip Girl was Karl Lagerfeld's inspiration...a possibility, no?

5. Last, but not least, Karl Lagerfeld is a Consistent Genius. But, hey we already knew that many, many years ago.















As always, I would love to know what you think....

Chloe said...

Gosh you're right! To the extent that, when looking at those exits, the models faces to me seemed to morph into those of Blair and Serena...confusing! Just can't decide whether I'm Chanel Team B or Chanel Team S! xx

Marie Z. said...

Cool post! I think you should be a stylist on the set of Gossip Girl ; )

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

All of these looks are incredible. Seriously, I would wear every one of them. I so wish I had a gossip girl frame!!! But my grandma had too many kids and now our genetics think we need well rounded hips and "womanly" tummies. oh grandma.

it reminds me of gossip girl because of its colors. I love all the colors of clothes they show on the show, it's never just black!

es said...

i think he could be inspired by GG, everybody loves it, why not him

Natalia said...

collection is amazing and gossip girl is great inspiration. yeah that's interesting, was that really inspiration for him? :)

NobodyKnowsMarc said...

Vintage Mavens said...

I thought the Chanel show was amazing as always! I totally see your Gossip Girl theory! It could have a possible connection!

Isabel said...

i wish i could have seen it in person!

Sue said...

Yes! your are right!

Blair/Leighton is fearless while dressing up, she wears unknown designers and she changes every time.
I feel that Serena always prefers a LBD more than everything. She has a stunning body but she doesn't know how to make the most out of it. She always dresses herself the same way.

nice blog!

following you!!!

Jade "Purple" Brown said...

theres been a lot of gossip that karl will be in a episode of gossip girl since they are both in paris right now!

Becca said...

I'm totally seeing the gossip girl influence. I heard that Blake Lively was sitting next to Anna at the show and that Karl may be making a GG cameo, so it wouldn't surprise me!

Margaux. said...

I think all the dresses are too long or too high cut for them to be inspired by Serena, haha. Her wardrobe is very bare!
But some of the dresses seem more Leighton than Blair to me. I could see her wearing some of them for events.

Style Porn said...

Amen! I am so with you on the mid-length skirts and dresses, and also on the fence about mid-calf boots. I seem to remember they don't really do anything for my legs.

riaj said...

could you imagine having that job?!

Noble Beeyotch said...

You are so right! These outfits were made for Serena and Blair! And the too girls sure looked great at the show!

Halie said...

Blake and Leighton both look fantastic!! Love this photos - that show was amazing. But, you're right - the boots kind of threw me off a little. But who cares? It's Lagerfeld.

Thanks for visiting my blog!! Following you on Bloglovin' now :)

Amy said...

I kind of agree... although I don't think that he was inspired by them! There are a couple here that I can definitely imagine Blair in, though. I read that KL is going to be in Gossip Girl?! INSANE.
