Even if the World Ends, We'll Look Fabulous: Chanel Resort 2012

Karl Lagerfeld's latest Cruise collection is the first of the 2012 resort lines to emerge this spring. As per Chanel custom, this collection is composed of over 70 looks, resulting in what Vogue has called a "lack of focus." Nonetheless, Lagerfeld, as always, gives his audience a lot to look at. With this being Chanel's line to remain the longest in stores, it makes sense that Lagerfeld cover all of this bases.

The collection is lovely, and most pieces are airy, delicate and feminine, but it lacks daring. It is, unfortunately, a safe Chanel-friendly collection.

Some standouts:

Zoe Saldana: It Girl

Flipping through some of the images of last nights' Teen Choice Awards, I was fairly underwhelmed by the celebs' outfits. One dress that I loved, however, was Zoe Saldana's Lanvin tea-length frock. Saldana is actually looking into collaborating with Prabal Gurung for a future fashion line, and she is obviously on the same page as Kiran and I when she describes fashion as "an art." It's also pretty neato that she's been dating Keith Britton for over 10 years, and the two are engaged. Britton is the CEO of My Fashion Database. 

Turns out, Zoe can not only rock a Lanvin dress, she pretty much looks fierce in everything she wears. Girlfriend can do a total boho-maxi dress or bust out the skinny jeans and the heels. She even looked pretty good in blue skin and makeshift leather clothes.
