First look: Chanel Spring ’10 Couture

Chanel Spring '10 Couture

Why is it that anything Chanel sends down the runway—no matter how outrageous—always, ALWAYS manages to look SO RIGHT?

Case in point: this ri-donk-ulous Minnie Mouse-style hairdo, no doubt achieved by winding copious amounts of fake hair into two gigantic buns. Notice the hair also has streaks of grey (or maybe it’s white). Is this a sign that maybe, just maybe, prematurely grey types will one day be able to rock those silver strands?

Okay… maybe not. But I still love this! (Not for real life, understand… just fantasy fashion land.) The heavy bangs look really fresh—and see that fabulous dusty rose and grey frayed chiffon bow? I predict H&M and/or Forever21 will have some version of it available in the next eight weeks.

Makeup, of course, is totally covetable. The lipstick (shade name: Genial) won’t be out until summer, but reminds me of a less glossy version of the orangey-red lips at Prada for spring ’10. Love the cool/warm contrast: warm lips, silvery lids.

i’ve been loving all the pics i’ve seen from this show. the hair! it is so gorgeous. i am really getting peeved of everyone saying its inspired by lady gaga. there was hair sculpture in fashion long before gaga and there will be long after her 15 minutes are up. the make up is amazing, makes me want to run out and grab on orange gloss to layer with red lipstick. you’re right, everything chanel does is amazing.

Gaga-inspired hair? No! I really wish she would go away now. I think Karl is fine coming up with this stuff on his own :-)
