Chanel used a very understated form of elegance for yesterday’s Cruise 2011/12 show in Antibes. The clothes were light, although less revealing than Chanel has shown in past cruisewear seasons. The outdoor runway had guests seated at tables covered with white umbrellas:
I love this series of white, floaty clothing:
According to this feature on Style.com, Chanel’s resident makeup genius Peter Philips stated, “The focus is on the easiness of the look,” that is, “great skin, a touch of shadow on the eyes, and a hint of blush on the cheeks.”
Philips used Chanel’s new-for-Fall Perfection Lumière foundation. Cheeks were given a little boost with a dusting of Chanel’s Joues Contraste blush in Espiègle (released for Spring 2011 and reviewed here). Eyes were lined in Stylo Yeaux waterproof eye liner in Ébène, a dark asphalt (reviewed here). Lashes were done with Chanel Inimitable waterproof Mascara in Noir.
Eyes featured a new four eyeshadow compact called Prelude, which according to Philips is “literally a palette of shadow shades.”
Lips and nails were left nude. So refreshing and clean for a summer look. The emphasis is on the accessory, not the nail. Do we die for this bracelet?
A clean nail with just a sweep of gloss…
A few more pictures, including some intriguing sunglasses:
Twinkle, twinkle, she’s a star. You can see the bare lips clearly here–she looks fabulous, yes?
Au revoir! Don’t leave your beach towel behind!
