Chanel Metiers d’Art Show in Dallas

The Haute Couture Fall 2013 shows unveiled in Paris this week amidst Chanel announcing the date for the Métiers d’Art show in Dallas.  Every Chanel swooning fashionista will be chasing the hottest invitation in Dallas this century on December 10.

Wearing his directorial chapeau, Karl Lagerfeld plans to mesmerize the audience at the Métiers d’Art show with a mini-movie, which he begins filming mid-July in Paris.  Geraldine Chaplin (daughter of Charlie Chaplin) will portray Ms. Chanel with actors Rupert Everett and Arielle Dombasle taking small parts.  The mini-movie will depict the successful arrival of Coco Chanel to America in the mid-fifties, (note quote from Karl in my announcement post earlier this year) which Lagerfeld describes his technique as “old Technicolor—like Paris photos.”  The excitement and anticipation is simply exhilarating, palpitating….I could on…

Watch this behind the scenes video taken from the Paris Edimbourg Métiers d’Art 2012/13 show, last year held in Scotland.

Dallas is ready for a monumental treat of decadent proportions. Watch the fur fly for this invitation!

 

Resort 2014 Review

Pyjamasmy new obsession, well pyjama-style pants at least. I’ll leave the full throttle pyjama party mood to Marc Jacobs, but show me loose fitting, printed drawstring pants, and I’m interested.  I recently made three purchasescamouflage at Haute Hippie, black and white swirl print at DVF, and all black tuxedo style at Vince.  I’ve definitely got comfort on my mind; add a couple of layers, long shirt, t-shirt and a cropped jacketeasy breezy.

Nikki Reed Chats About Her Exclusive Jewelry Collaboration with 7 For All Mankind

From Twilight to Starry Knight, Miss Nikki Reed, oh I mean, Mrs. Paul McDonald, (she married the ‘American Idol’ contestant October 2011) is emphatically adorable. The Twilight actress has collaborated with 7 For All Mankind on an exclusive jewelry collection. The capsule collection launched last week, but sweet Nikki arrived in Dallas to promote her collection at the 7 For All Mankind boutique in Northpark Center last night. Decked out in denim and jewelry, I sat sofa-side with Nikki and chatted about her latest jewelry venture.
