Just some group shots of Chanel summer! I bought everything yesterday at Nordstrom — I still have to get through quite a few photos and write-up the reviews so sit tight, but definitely expect to see a few go up this morning/afternoon!
Coco Chanel revolutionized the way women dressed by designing looks that were elegant, yet surprisingly comfortable. Her vision: simple, uncomplicated silhouettes in modern fabrics to lend a new ease and modernity to a woman’s wardrobe.
Today, CHANEL carries on that vision with new ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshine, the exciting next chapter in the evolution of the iconic modern crème lip colour. Lips are effortlessly dressed in the most elegant shades, with the most comfortable wear.
Fresh, sheer and luminous, ROUGE COCO SHINE provides beautiful, lasting moisturizing shine in a water-light texture. The formula glides on for easy application, and a unique HYDRATENDRE complex hydrates and softens lips, giving them a healthier and fuller appearance.
The emblematic black metal case of ROUGE COCO has been specially refined. In its new interpretation, the ROUGE COCO SHINE packaging reflects the graceful codes of the iconic brand with a slimmer case and a new interior design to protect the innovative formula.
ROUGE COCO SHINE is available in a complete range of shades, from delicate beiges to dazzling berries, with hints of shimmer to enhance a glossy finish. Each of the 18 shades is linked to the world of Coco Chanel. . . each a source of inspiration or influence that profoundly impacted her life.

Three years after the first commercial film, Knightley reprises her role as COCO MADEMOISELLE, a modern day Coco Chanel whose mystery, daring and rebelliousness are at the heart of her charm.
While the first film featured long evening gowns, the second takes on a more urban feel, with Knightley appearing on the streets of Paris in a chic, beige motorcycle jumpsuit designed for her by Karl Lagerfeld. Filmed in legendary locations across the City of Light – from Place Vendome to Place de la Concorde, the film is a collaboration between Knightley and Joe Wright, a creative relationship that began with Wright’s directorial debut, the Oscar®-nominated film Pride & Prejudice, and continued with the Oscar®-nominated Atonement.
“For me, Gabrielle Chanel is an icon and there was an incredible power emanating from all the photos of her,” states Knightley. “When I began to delve into her history more closely, I was obviously fascinated by her immense talent as a designer, but more than that, by her singular background.”
The commercial film’s soundtrack, “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World” by James Brown is performed by the soulful voice of Grammy® award winner, Joss Stone and was published by Warner Chappell.

Chanel Teheran (56) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a frosted pinked coral with soft iridescent pink-fuchsia shimmer. It’s a warmer shade, which means it will suit warmer complexions with ease. I think the way the pink sheen catches the light may make it wearable for cooler skin tones, though. For a Rouge Coco, it has a surprising amount of color coverage–virtually opaque–and didn’t seem as dry as other shades I’ve tried with similar frost finishes.
