Chanel 2001 Spring/Summer Ready to Wear Beauty

Karl Lagerfeld earned yet another feather in his cap with RAVE reviews of the Chanel 2001 Spring/Summer Ready to Wear show in Paris last week. Here’s a behind the scenes look at the makeup for the show.

“Karl Lagerfeld showed me a sketch he had drawn of a girl with smoky eyes, so it was clear that we would put the focus on the eyes for this show,” says Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup. “The inspiration for the color came from the black-white-green French garden that was recreated in the Grand Palais, from the glow that we can find in black, grey and white pearls, and the enamel that Karl integrated into the costume jewelry. I created deep, dark smoky eyes on a luminous fresh face with tinted, dewy lips. Nails were graphic and strong, and a thin black line was drawn in the hair.”
