If there's anything that's more avant-garde than florals for spring, it would be pastels(I hope the sarcasm is not lost on you) which is exactly what Karl did for Chanel's 2013 cruise collection. Now, now, now, if he only did it on the clothes I would simply turn my head away in disgust and flip my hair(not just in disgust but also because I'm fabulous) but he went all the way with the hair and makeup. Pastel, razor-sharp bangs, Chanel beauty marks and large hair ribbons? Oh yes he did. Though it's still technically pastels for spring(or summer), at least it's on your face and mane. Oh, and I always feel weird saying "mane," because it makes me think I'm talking about a lion or something.
Since the collection was showed at the Versailles and the models were spotted with girly frilly makeup, I should say something stupid, like "this is obviously inspired by Marie Antoinette!" and put a screenshot of Kirsten Dunst eating macarons. Since I've mentioned it I might as well as do it, but it's stupid and I'm too lazy to open VLC Player and dig up my "Marie Antoinette(2006)" file. Anyway, one of the reasons I'm going berserk is because the pastel bobs are so structured and defined, and little jackets are the only thing that are ever structured and defined. Not to mention, very groundbreaking. I mean, the most groundbreaking thing Karl had ever did recently were those crystallized eyebrows(but they're stupid).
So basically the only thing I like about the Chanel Cruise collection is the hair and makeup(and the jewelry! Chokers and chandelier earrings, merci beaucoup), which is not surprising considering I rarely like anything Karl did. I'm sorry but I don't. Marie Antoinette-inspired collection showing at the Versailles? Groundbreaking. Your creativeness is astounding, Uncle Karl, and absolutely fantastic. Not. Oh, and I also dissected a frog today. Let's just say that I'm really glad I'm not a frog.
