Chanel Resort 2011

May 12, 2010

I may bitch and moan about missing Paris Fashion Week or the Met Gala, but the Chanel Resort Show in Saint-Tropez might take the cake for fashion events that I would cut off a limb to go to. It’s events like these that make me wonder why Julie Andrews didn’t come and tell me that she’s my long lost Grandmother and that I’m the Princess of Genovia (sorry…Princess Diaries reference).

Aside from the stunning fashion show which I will get to in a minute, this week long soiree is filled with some of the chicest and coolest people in the business. I can’t even imagine playing on a team for Le Concours de Pétanques Chanel with Leigh Lezark, Olivier Zahm and Andre Saraiva while watching Diane Kruger bounce around as the sun sets. Or let’s be honest, being that close to Karl Lagerfeld for that long of a time. *sigh*

The fashion show was 1970s inspired, featuring a collection of chiffon tunics, gingham blouses, camel mini skirts and lacey swimwear. The light, free-spirited collection mirrored its landscape – a sunset lit harbor – as the models, most barefoot, disembarked a magnificent yacht and took the runway. Not surprisingly the model list was OFF THE WALL with muses like Freja Erichsen, Karolina Kurkova, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Heidi Mount, Anja Rubik and Georgia Jagger who apparently closed the show riding in on the back of a motorcycle. Obviously the list is much more extensive, but you get the picture.

I normally try to just pick about 10-15 of my favorite looks from a collection, but this was too good to narrow down. Here is my large group of favorites (but really, the whole collection was amazing so check it out on
