Chanel beach girls, Get the look

While Paris Fashion Week is officially over, I’m still lusting after the beauty looks sported by the “Chanel Beach Girls.” The spectacular, raved-about Chanel show featured today’s top models wearing beachy half-up hair, ribbon ties and crystal CC pins, and dewy, fresh makeup. (Suddenly, hairpins and beachy hair are super chic!) The other big takeaway? The lipstick. Sadly, we will all have to wait until January to get our hands on the neon coral lip color, worn by every model. Keep reading to see my Chanel beauty picks AND find out the lipstick of the moment!

“Chanel by the Sea” was the show theme in Paris, where Karl Lagerfeld unveiled his newest collection for SS19. The Grand Palais was completely transformed into a full-on beach scene, complete with sand, water, and even beach huts. Models playfully walked barefoot, nonchalantly carrying their shoes in hand. Pastel shades were shown for day, and black – unexpectedly – for summer nights. There were oversized straw hats, 80’s swimwear and Chanel logos galore in the form of belts and earrings. (To watch some of this incredible show, click here.)  But the biggest discovery, hands down, was the hair and makeup. See below for some AMAZING inspiration, and some of the most wearable looks I’ve seen coming down the runway. You can watch the “beauty behind the scenes” video here.

Sam McKnight, the most iconic hairstylist in the world, created the tousled hairstyles for the SS19 show, most definitely a look to copy.  To feel like you’re one of the models in the Chanel show (wink), try McKnight’s cult-favorite texture mist with its lust-worthy floral scent. I have one on the way, so I’ll keep you posted.  In the meantime, check out these pics straight from the spring-summer show, for inspiration.


Get the look



Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet “Infra Rose,” the biggest hit of the show, was the color on every model’s lips as she sashayed through the sand … available this January. I can hardly wait to re-create this look!
