The CHANEL Word.

Usually on Fridays, it is quite hard to find something interesting to blog about. However, NYFW started yesterday, there were Fashion Nights Out, boutiques were being reopened, plenty to blog about. There are almost too many things to blog about. I get muddled quite easily and this morning is no exception.

But when I saw the pictures of the re-opening of the Chanel Soho boutique, which took place last night, I found my post! Everywhere Karl Lagerfeld goes, he draws a crowd. He drew possibly the most stylish and fashionable crowd last night. The majority in Chanel, of course!

Just for you, I picked my two favourite looks from last night. Diane Kruger and Leigh Lezark. These are both very different looks. Diane Kruger is wearing a Chanel Fall 2010 ruffled dress. It is quite romantic, unique and the detailing is gorgeous. Diane, as always looks unflappable. Chanel is second nature to her, by this stage!

Leigh's Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 dress is more edgy, its more dramatic and daring. Perfect for Leigh with her dark hair and pale skin tone. She rocks it!

Have you a favourite here?



Blake Lively was also at this Chanel re-opening, wearing Chanel Haute Couture F/W 2011. Now, I don't know if you remember, but when I posted about the Chanel Haute Couture show in July, I made a sort of amateurish blogger comment. I stated, that perhaps Lagerfeld designed the Haute Couture collection with the Gossip Girls or the girls (out of character) in mind. Here is Blake Lively wearing a a dress from that Haute Couture show. Probably only a coincidence, perhaps? If you didn't read that post, way back yonder in July, click HERE and you will get a better idea.

I'm reading the Beautiful Fall right now -- it's amusing to see how Lagerfeld created his Lagerfeld character.

Diane Kruger never ceases to impress me over and over again! She pulls that dress of although it could otherwise look rubbish on someone else.
Blake also looks lovely in that dress. But is it just me or is her make-up a little off...maybe its just the photo, but her face looks different

It's refreshing to see Blake Lively in something a little longer and less form fitting for a change.
