Chanel’s Resort 2013 runway show truly referenced the era of Marie Antoinette and all of her flamboyant quirks. This time though, it’s hte beauty look that spoke louder than the garments—for us, at the very least. That one miniscule detail that sent fashion editors and blogs abuzz was the label’s logo painted on the models’ faces. Hand-painted by Chanel creative director of makeup Peter Philips, the interlocking C’s were supposed to simulate the beauty marks of Marie Antoinette, but was positioned to look like a teardrop tattoo.
Although we still can’t sort out our opinion as to we like it or otherwise, Chanel is a step ahead, seemingly urging us that this is a trend. Following Philips fondness for attaching Chanel’s logo onto a sundry of things, a line of black velvet facial stickers will actually be sold as part of the Collection Versailles de Chanel makeup line.Seeing that we’ve seen the brand sell temporary tattoos before, we’re really not too surprised. We wonder though, if this new beauty accessory will catch fire among the fashion industry’s most elite.
