Kirsten Dunst Wears Chanel on Visit to Turkey

kirsten dunst chanel haute couture spring 2011

Kirsten Dunst is riding the Chanel wave from the Cannes Film Festival across the Mediterranean to Turkey where she’s been spotted wearing Chanel to two events.  Dunst wore Chanel Haute Couture from the Spring 2011 collection to a Courtney Love performance that she attended with Ryan McGinley. She seems to like this collection – because this is the second dress from this collection that she’s worn that features the sheer panels and intricate beading. The delicateness of the dresses complement the delicateness of the actresses features. She also looks really nice in the pale cream/pink/white colors that she’s been wearing.

kirsten dunst chanel resort 2011/12 antibesDunst also attended a presentation of the Chanel Paris-Byzance Métiers d’Art collection at the luxurious Ciragan Palace Kempinski Hotel wearing a cream dress from the recent Chanel 2011/12 resort collection shown in Antibes.  How wonderful to see the Paris-Byzance collection in the place that inspired the collection!   I love this dress – especially the hem and sleeve length – so elegant yet sexy – reminds me of the 1940s.  I do however think that the dress might be a little tight on Kirsten in the bust area – either that or the way she’s posing is making the dress bunch up a bit in the neckline area.

I’m wondering if Kirsten Dunst wearing all this Chanel is a prelude to a campaign?  I suppose only time will tell…

Chanel Spring in Cannes Ephemeral Boutique

Chanel is opening a 300 square meter pop-up boutique in Cannes featuring selections from the Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear and Paris-Byzance collections. The boutique’s color palette is black and gold and has black mosaic floors, sequined carpets and “offers a view all the way down to the stairs leading up to the Palais des Festivals.”

Chanel stated:

The make-up bar presents the Lumières Byzantines eye shadow palette, created by Peter Philips for the Paris-Byzance collection. The nail bar, meanwhile, highlights a summer palette.

There are pieces from the Paris-Byzance collection as a sneak preview amidst designs from the Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection, and dresses and suits – on loan from the Chanel Conservatory – worn by those loyal to the House, such as Keira Knightley, Michelle Williams, Penelope Cruz and Michelle Mercier.

The Cannes Ephemeral Boutique will be open from May 7th to May 22nd 2011 from 10am to 7pm. The address is: 6, Boulevard de la Croisette, 06400 Cannes, France.

I wish I could go! I’m hoping Chanel will post images from the boutique – it sounds exquisite!

Saoirse Ronan Wears Chanel to Hanna NYC Premiere

saoirse ronan in chanel hanna nyc premiere
Saoirse Ronan, the star of Hanna, wore a dress from the Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2011 Paris-Byzance collection to the NYC premiere of her film. I think she wore it well. She seems really young though and I think the dress may be a bit old for her. It’s beautiful, don’t get me wrong, I just would have loved to see her in something else. What do you think?

Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2011

The Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2011 show is on Tuesday and it will be shown at the Pavillon Cambon Capucines.  Chanel posted a preview of the invite on Chanel News and it’s posted below.  It’s difficult to get a read on what the inspiration may be old feeling to it.  The tiled double-C’s remind me of the Paris-Byzance collection but they look more like cobblestones to me – like streets in the 1800s rather than mosaic tiles.  There’s something about the image that makes me think of horse drawn carriages.  I guess I’ll know for sure tomorrow…

Window World by Karl Lagerfeld – The Short Film

After a controversial short film for the Paris-Shanghai collection, Karl Lagerfeld skipped doing a fashion film for the Paris-Byzance collection. I guess Lagerfeld couldn’t keep himself from shooting a short film though and what we have now is the release of Window World, Uncle Karl’s latest fashion film for Chanel.

Window World features Magdalena Frackowiak, Barbara Dvorakova and Baptiste Giabiconi as mannequins in a store window with music fit for a suspense movie in the background. If Mannequin and Psycho had a baby it would be Window World. Not Karl’s best work but entertaining nonetheless.
