Last night, the actress wore a pink tiered dress with a black bow to a gala in Paris, a dress that had just sashayed down the runway on the back of model Snejana Onopka less than 48 hours prior. How did Kruger get dibs? We think being the longtime muse of Karl Lagerfeld and sitting front row at the couture fashion show had something to do with it! Now, we wonder… what look will she pick next?

One of the most fashionable people in Park City, Utah this week for the Sundance Film Festival isn’t an actress, but singer Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine. The 24-year-old Brit, whose group is nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards next month, is often spotted in couture clothes by Chanel and Givenchy as well as luxury labels like Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior and Zuhair Murad. Over at Sundance, she performed at the Official Bing Bar after-party wearing Elie Saab (shown). Looks like we can count on Welch to inject the oft-crazy Grammys red carpet with some high fashion at the awards ceremony February 13th. Click through the gallery to see more of Florence Welch’s high fashion clothes.

I have to tell you about this new brand I found,” the 19-year-old exclaimed, showing us her asymmetrical blazer by McGinn Collection, a line from the makers of Plastic Island. “I’m a big shopper,” Roberts said. “Plus, my stylists send me texts when they find things they think I’ll like. And I’m always asking my friends what they’re wearing and where they got it.” Continue reading

Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe is a busy woman these days. She’s filming a new season of her show The Rachel Zoe Project, dressing Anne Hathaway for when the actress hosts the Oscars, launching a new collection, and on top of all of that, she’s pregnant! “It’s been a good pregnancy,” Zoe (in a Balmain dress and vintage Chanel earrings) told us at the Weinstein and Relativity Media Golden Globes after-party. “I’m super tired, but I have no time for a nap.” Zoe, who is expecting a boy, also said that she’s craving one thing, and one thing only. “Strawberries are my only craving,” she said. “I can eat a whole pint!” Man, we thought she’d say bananas.

It’s true! Just weeks after rumors circulated that Chanel tapped Blake Lively to star in the label’s upcoming handbag campaign, Chanel confirmed the news this morning. “A dream come true is an understatement,” Lively told WWD about her new role. “I can say that I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl around.” The Gossip Girl star compared this gig to finding true love: “How did Cinderella feel when she slipped on the glass slipper? How did Snow White feel when she met her Prince Charming?” Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld shot Lively in Paris at the iconic Chanel headquarters. “She’s a kind of American dream girl,” he said. Expect to see Lively show off Chanel’s new Mademoiselle handbag line starting this April. Plus: See some of Blake Lively’s memorable Chanel outfits in the gallery.

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld (shown here with Keira Knightley) announced last week that he’d be starring in an upcoming Volkswagen commercial, and alas, his big small-screen moment is here. The spot came out today, and it’s oddly intriguing, despite the fact that we can’t understand a word he’s saying because it’s in German. But who can resist 32 seconds of Lagerfeld clutching his camera with an extra-long lens talking about cars? Not you! See the full video after the jump. Continue reading

Graphic designer turned Chanel nail artist Tom Bachik tends to the tips of celebrities all the time, which is why we wanted to find out his top manicure moments when we caught up with him this month. And some of the loveliest Hollywood ladies topped his list, including Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Ricci. “It’s a natural look that’s not natural at all,” Bachik says of Beckham’s nude Inattendu color by Chanel. He picked Jennifer Lopez’s brown color (Particuliere by Chanel) for a different reason. “The dark neutral polish complements her outfit—and it is amazing with her skin tone.” And as for Ricci’s fruity Chanel hue Orange Fizz? “I was thinking young and summer with this shade,” he says. “The nails really became a part of her outfit.” For Bachik’s expert techniques for nailing the perfect manicure, click ahead.

The model/television-personality, who wore a Chanel coat dress from the spring 2011 collection, arrived at the awards with this tousled, chin-length cut. Ombré hair color fans, don’t fret! Chung smartly opted for newly highlighted, caramel blond ends. What do you think of her shorter cut? Tell us in the comments below.
