Not the best picture in the world, but it gives us a wee taste of what the Lily Allen CHANEL campaign is going to be like – and frankly, I actually can’t wait to see more!

The composition looks nice 🙂 I’d like to see more images of Lily’s face though! Hurry up CHANEL!

What do you think of Lily and CHANEL?

Lily Allen for CHANEL.

I know this is slightly old news, I haven’t had time to get round to writing about this yet! Sorry guys! Also, apologies for this very suddenly turning into a CHANEL blog! Unfortunately, Chanel happens to be my favourite fashion house, so thats probably why I’m leaning more towards Chanel at the moment….

Anyway, this is by the by…

It has apparently been confirmed that British muscian and fashionista Lily Allen has been picked as the newest face of Chanel by Mr Karl Lagerfeld himself.

Lets be honest, it’s been on the cards for yonks! Lily is always front row at fashion weeks, whether that be Chanel or not, she’ll always be sporting at least one piece of Chanel. She owns dozens of Chanel handbags – and is most often carrying (rather roughly sometimes – which does upset me somewhat) the grey large camera bag.

I have to say I was, and still am, in two minds about this collaboration. I on the one hand, think its great. I actually quite like Lily now – although it was only last year she went a little bit mental and dyed her hair blonde-ish and then pink… and only a year before that when she was wearing the hideous prom dress/trainers combo. BUT how she has bloody well blossomed! Just look at her in the picture above, quite the ‘Chanel Girl‘. It makes me smile.

But still, what would Gabrielle Chanel say? Surely she’d be turning in her grave? Hmm. I’m not so sure. One thing I am sure about is I’m very excited to see the shoot and the campaign. I’m sure she’ll look amazing. She’ll be the face of the leather goods – about right really considering she’s never seen without the aforementioned leather goods in question!

What do you think? Good or bad decision on Mr Lagerfelds part?

Our first lady of fashion; please enter Gabrielle Chanel.

I am some what fascinated and, slightly obsessed by the life and loves of Gabrielle Chanel; known to most as COCO CHANEL.

Gabrielle Chanel the founder of French Fashion House, CHANEL, had the ability to capture what a woman really wanted to wear – to feel liberated and in luxury… at an expense of course.

Chanel was also very articulate; as can be seen from her many many enchanting and insightful quotations…

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion.”

“A woman has the age she deserves.”

“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”

“Fashion has become a joke. The designers have forgotten that there are women inside the dresses. Most women dress for men and want to be admired. But they must also be able to move, to get into a car without bursting their seams! Clothes must have a natural shape.”

“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”

“Fashion is made to become unfashionable.”

“How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

“I invented my life by taking for granted that everything I did not like would have an opposite, which I would like.”

“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”

“Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics.”

“Since everything is in our heads, we had better not lose them.”

The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!”

“Where should one use perfume?” a young woman asked. “Wherever one wants to be kissed,” I said.”

All these quotations are so legendary and thoughful. Coco Chanel is a wonderful individual who lived a very fulfilled and supreme life… leaving other peoples lives supreme and very fulfilled… including my very own life. Thank You Madame Gabrielle.

Ms. Judy Pink.
