Chanel Couture Spring 2010

Per usual, Karl Lagerfeld knocked it out of the park with the latest Chanel show. "It's the first time in my whole career I've done a collection without black or navy. There's not one gold button," he told reporters. What replaced his go-to hues? Silver and pastels. The traditional Chanel pearls show up as trim on the bottoms of the space age shoes.

The look carried over to the makeup, too. "Karl gave me three key words: Neon Baroque, Chemical Pastels and Liquid Silver, said Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup. "For the lips I used the new Summer 2010 Rouge Allure Lipstick in Genial. This coral shade perfectly matched the  spirit Karl wanted for the makeup at this show."

Peter used the following Chanel products:

Eyes:              Ombres Contraste Duo in Gris-Subtil (To launch in 2010)
                        Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Graphite
                        Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensional in Black

Cheeks:           Les Tissages de Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Corail

Lips:                Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in Pink Sugar
                        Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour in Genial (Available in May 2010)

Nails:                Le Vernis Nail Colour in Silver (Currently not available in the U.S.)

We were so inspired by the gorge silver nails, we broke out our bottle of Essie's Loophole, circa 2007. It doesn't have quite the same slick sheen at the Chanel Silver polish does, but until that one hits our shores, it will have to do.
