Reminisce to the 18th century and imagine if Marie Antoinette were ghetto – she’d be sipping tea in a rock n’ roll gathering while Karl Lagerfeld would be monitoring her wardrobe.
Karl Lagerfeld used this very vision for Chanel Cruise 2013 runway show at the Palace of Versailles. It was a contradiction in its strongest element. The picturesque garden brought out the frivolity of the resort collection, while also turning up the notch of ‘adventurous’ in the beauty and hair department. The whimsical hues of lilac, peach, mint and pink continued to trend the entire ensemble, as oppose to limiting themselves to the threads.
The dyed stands of the fringed and angular bob were supported by a strong make-up look. These overly pink tones might have come across at supremely girly at first, but it’s a look that’ll take you from a fairytale-themed party to a Rooney Mara-esque gathering, without begging for changes in your ensemble.
On the day of the show, Lagerfeld was quoted in The Telegraph saying, “Maybe 99 per cent of the people who see the clothes will never own them, but they can buy the lipstick or the perfume”.
Adding value to Lagerfeld’s words, Fashionising.com chatted with Sydney-based hair and make-up artist, Anni Hall who has broken down each element of the Chanel Cruise 2013 look for us.
