WHY I'LL ALWAYS LOVE KARL

I'm sure many of you have heard the buzz surrounding Michelle Obama's inaguration day attire. ALL of the top designers are vying to outfit the next first lady, and newfound style icon, for the historic event. I find all of the designs just stunning, but my affinity for Chanel leads me to say this is by far my favorite. I think it is just perfect for Ms. Obama...classic, iconic, and yet understated...all the reasons why I love Chanel, and why Michelle is becoming one of my style muses. I fear; however, that she will not choose such an established (and costly) designer, all in keeping with support of the working class ideals...none the less I can not wait to see who she chooses.

I could not possibly end this post without speaking of the Chanel metiers d'art pre-fall collection for 2009. I am simply captivated...for all aforementioned reasons. It is no surprise Karl has achieved perfection once again in presenting the best of the house's traditional faire.

Thank you for the comment I really appreciate it :-D

I'm also really anxious to see what designer Michelle picks. There are a lot of beautiful selections for her to choose from but referring to what you said, I too, think she's not going to go for the less costly designers.

obviously, chanel is CHANEL. I love other fashion houses, but... is CHANEL. And Karl is doing a good job right now, also with those designs for Mrs. Obama. I love his style and the way he design every single clothe. It´s simple brilliant.
