EVEN GWYNETH PALTROW CAN’T SAVE THIS DOWDY CHANEL OUTFIT

Gwyneth Paltrow turned up at the Chanel Spring/Summer couture show at Paris Fashion Week in this matronly two piece suit. Karl Lagerfeld MUST have given it to her to wear to the event and she couldn’t say no. We can’t IMAGINE Gwyneth picking this out for herself. The square cut and stiff fabric along with the box pleated long skirt make Gwyneth look around 20 pounds heavier and when she sees these photos we bet she will privately vow NOT to take Lagerfeld’s advice all the time.

DAVID SPADE IS SHOPPING WITH BRODY JENNER’S GIRLFRIEND

AG057041_08spade

Here’s a mini-mystery: Why is David Spade taking Brody Jenner’s girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter shopping at Chanel on Rodeo Drive? It was speculated that Kaitlynn might become engaged to Brody over the holidays- they are THAT serious. Adding to the puzzle is the fact that Kaitlynn is Spade’s EX-girlfriend! They dated before she met Brody. Is something happening here behind Jenner’s back? Whatever’s going on, Kaitlynn looks happy.

KRISTEN STEWART LOOKS GOOD AT CHANEL SHOW, BUT SHE CAN’T WAIT TO GET OUT OF THERE

Kristen Stewart is a reluctant fashionista at the Chanel show in Paris. She‘s done some ads for the fashion house so she had to show up in a Chanel outfit, but she’d rather be in raggedy jeans. Kristen impulsively got her new haircut just an hour before this photo was taken. Her next project sounds impressive – she’s costarring with Jennifer Lawrence’s cute boyfriend Nicholas Hoult in “Equals” – a futuristic love story.

RIHANNA IS ARMED AND DANGEROUS WITH HER CHANEL FANNY PACK

Yes, Karl Lagerfeld has brought back the fanny pack! Rihanna turned up for the Chanel show in Paris wearing Chanel from head to toe. Her fanny pack ($1300 and up) has a little gun on it. And the fancy sneakers (replacing the towering stilettos of yesteryear) are hand made with a couture pricetag of thousands. Rihanna is giving Lady Gaga a run for her money, fashion-wise.

KRIS JENNER NEEDS A BIG BAG FOR HER MONEY

EVERYBODY is going to Selfridges in London since the PBS TV series put the store back on the map. Among the shoppers: the Kardashians of course. Kris discovered Chanel’s hula hoop purse – it was the most talked about item in the Spring collection. The jumbo version of this beach bag wasn’t expected to make it into stores, but apparently it did. A mini version of the bag is $2500.00 so the big one must be around $20,000. Pocket money for Kris.

IS THIS BRAD PITT CHANEL AD A JOKE, OR WHAT?

#bradpitt #chanel #janetcharlton
Brad Pitt for Chanel:

Charlize Theron for Dior:

What happened to Chanel? And what happened to Brad Pitt? This Chanel #5 ad (top) has to be the worst thing brad has ever done! He looks washed out, rumpled and defeated. Facial fuzz and stringy hair add to the lack of physical appeal. There’s nothing flattering or enticing or sexy about the ad. Compare it to the one that Charlize Theron did (with no expense spared) for Dior. Which scent would YOU buy?

PARIS FASHION WEEK ROLLS OUT THE GREEN CARPET FOR CELEBRITIES

#jenniferlopez #parisfashion #janetcharlton

Jennifer Lopez is introducing her little fashionista Emme to the wonderful world of Paris Fashion Week and they showed up in the front row of one of the hottest shows – Chanel. According to Merle Ginsberg at The Hollywood Reporter, MOST celebrities are handsomely paid for turning up at a designer’s show. It’s all a big secret but it’s estimated that Rihanna collects almost $100,000 to appear. Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian are rumored to pull in around $50,000. This also includes a first class all expense paid trip to Paris and probably a photographed shopping spree at the designer’s boutique! Actresses, however, are so enamored with Chanel that sometimes they show up just to butter up Karl Lagerfeld for future acquisition of goods. We’re not sure about Jennifer…

VANESSA PARADIS IS HERE – BUT WHERE’S JOHNNY?

Vanessa Paradis is just as evasive as Johnny Depp when it comes to their relationship. Vanessa and Johnny haven’t been seen at an event together for a year and a half. She goes to her movie premiers alone and so does he. But they both insist the rumors about them splitting are not true. Maybe they’re just taking time off and really don’t know if it’s over. And for the sake of their kids, Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack, 9, they’re in no hurry to make a decision. Above, Vanessa turned up for Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel collection at the Chateau de Versailles in France, looking adorable, as always.
