Numéro Paris March 2012: Karlie, Saskia, Aymeline

Karlie Kloss

There may be more covers coming, but I’m going to focus on these right now. I believe this may be Miss Kloss’s first shoot with Karl, so I’m going to say this is really major for her career. May she become a Chanel girl, amen. Covering in Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture, Karlie’s cover was the first to be revealed and obviously our girl is working it. Need the editorials ASAP.

Numéro #121 March 2011: Freja Beha Erichsen & Arizona Muse

Arizona isn’t my favorite newcomer by far, but editorial-wise, if she can bring it, girlfriend better to make up for her jank runway walk. I absolutely despise her runway and wish she’d go into hiding. Unfortunately, I believe the Paris runways will only bring more Arizona, but I’m hoping Freja makes her back to them, since she’s been absent and quiet all month, like most seasoned vets.

Now for the cover. I love it. There’s exquisite Chanel and the two look flawless. The editorial is much better with haute couture pieces of Givenchy, Elie Saab, and Armani Prive. We can’t wait for the high quality editorial images of what seem to be fairly impressive. Stay tuned.

Baptiste Giabiconi: Showtime

Lagerfeld’s muse won’t give up on his pop dreams. Unintentionally ridiculous, you can’t look away. Superpowers, a great head of hair, and the faint melody of Ke&*#$%a’s “Tik Tok” formulate this pop epicness and confusion. Shaking my head right now. Shaking it hard.

To quote:

Dear sweet Cheesus, Baptiste’s video is…amazing. He’s a telekinetic, bad-boy with a wardrobe that looks like the unholy union of Rock & Republic and Armani Exchange. Also, I kept getting distracted because I just kept thinking of that picture Karl has of him in his Paris studio. The one with the all of the Barbies and him Blue Steeling errwhere.

Chanel S/S 2011

Overall, a pretty show with powerful music, but…

1) Could do without the Canadian Tuxedo and the vast majority of the platform sandals.

2) I don’t think I can ever find an ounce of love for Carmen Kass, and maybe that’s half the reason why I could never fully appreciate Michael Kors, but that ridiculous, apricot feathered frock is making me salivate, not to mention the abundant usage of black feathers. I adore them.

The Big Chill

How laughably tacky and horrendous is this? I knew this had to be shot by the eye and hands of Karl and was I ever right. Abbey Lee looks wonderful and at the same time, makes me cry and reflect on all of the good times when her hair more natural like shown here; not bleached out and terrifying. She’s an adorable creature and shouldn’t succumb to over-processed hair, bad bangs or even a blast of makeup on high. So catalog.

Christy Turlington on Vogue Italia

Every time I see this cover of the next issue of Vogue Italia shot by Steven Meisel, it reminds me of how hilarious Chanel Fall/Winter 10/11 is with those little eskimo and silly Ewok furs that Karl sent down the runway with that real iceberg he had shipped from who knows where from. A life without Lagerfeld is a life I do not wish to see.

Diane Kruger – Fashion Star

Diane, what can’t you love about this woman? Most know her from Inglourious Basterds, but many also know her through her keen fashions and superb sense of style that is unmatchable. She has such high tastes from Chanel – says Karl Lagerfeld is like a father – to Haute Couture and the most casual wear, yet is always so perfectly edited from top to bottom. Sometimes her style can raise questions, but there never is a question for taste.  Recently she has really caught my attention, not to mention the whole fashion universe’s eye, with all of her exquisite numbers she wears on and off the runway.

We begin a few weeks ago in St. Tropez. The night before Chanel unveiled the resort collection, Diane sported a beautiful Chanel number paired with a hat to make it seem like the perfect casual ensemble. How relaxed yet cool does she look? During the actual runway show, Miss Kruger wowed in a Chanel Pre-Fall 2010 minidress adorned in black paillettes. The formal model is sexy as an obvious Chanel darling. I think her best accessory to date is her beau, Joshua Jackson, or Pacey if you will. He’s turned into such a GQ man as of late. Something is rubbing off and it’s something that I need to steal. Perfection is what it all is. Perfection.

Street style is something that is very interesting and different for everyone. Diane mastered it like it was effortless. What I’m sure is J.CREW, she pairs it with a hat again and Lanvin heels as she goes from shopping to wherever. The skirt is cute and the pop of purple makes the outfit exciting, while the heels bring a slight edge to the feminine and whimsy with the gold chain.

Now to the Cannes’s ensembles that got endless press. My first choice is the Jason Wu gown at Palme d’Or Award Closing Ceremony during Cannes Film Festival. The custom fuchsia gown is stunning and I don’t care to hear opinions stating otherwise. The black bodice is pretty with the lace and bead details, and this is definitely a gown to wear to make a statement. It comes across so strong, a bit quirky, and highly feminine. I love the gown on this woman! Moving on at Cannes, you can’t overlook the Giambattista Valli Fall 2010 dress. While the hair isn’t the best statement to make for any occasion, the dress is just absolutely beautiful and stunning. The bodice makes the whole dress with the beading and block flowers. Add the lower 60s pink half, and the look is so chic and wonderful. While most could not pull this off, instances like these excite me. Why just wear the same old boring dress? Have fun and play. This is what fashion is all about.

There is one more occasion that really caught my eye. This one other occasion is when she is wearing Lanvin Fall 2010. This is such a while dress, it’s ridiculous. Granted it’s not for everyone’s tastes, but it’s beautiful nonetheless. All of the detail and beading is fabulous and the fabric is interesting within itself. I love it. She pairs it with the same Lanvin shoes she wore shopping, yet this time they’re black. Stunning. Wow factor. Also, she pairs herself with the cutest little man. They look so good together. Makes you just jealous deep down inside.

Lilo and Her SCRAM

Oh, Linds…once again you get to sport an ever so awesome ankle monitor. I love that she shows up in court (about time) trying to be conservative, yet still showing some cleavage. Stay classy, Lilo. I know, I’d hate people interfering in my life as well, but you were ordered to probation and you need to follow those conditions. Meanwhile, I like your pants and pumps combination. Almost looked fashionable and professional.

I’m expecting some very chic ankle bracelet moments in the coming months. I just remember that summer (images below) where she went to those celebrity beach parties and wore the bracelet around like it was nothing and clearly a fashion statement. Luckily, I’m certain Lagerfeld will not be presenting designer versions on Chanel runways again anytime soon. Get your act together, fire crotch.

Claudia Schiffer Prego in Vogue Italia

Now we have all of the pictures featured in the June edition of Vogue Italia. Claudia Schiffer, photographed by no other than Karl Lagerfeld, looks absolutely stunning pregnant. Reminiscent of Demi Moore and all of those pregnant ladies in magazines after, Claudia Schiffer is definitely a sexy mother to be. The supermodel momma’ is not slowing down.

We were also halfway joking about Karl asking her to drop a few pounds. She’s pregnant, but we wouldn’t see it out of character of Lagerfeld, who once reportedly said Heidi was fat and Claudia was the real model. Well, I guess he did use Crystal Renn in his Resort 2011 show…except her curves were a little less curvy and she was feeling a little less “plus-sized.”  What up, Lagerfeld?!
