Alexa Chung’s CHANEL portrait

- If you were one of the Chanel symbols?

The ballerina pumps, I guess because I king of live in those, they are my favorite! And they are the first Chanel item I ever invested in.

- If you were a Chanel bag?

I think the mini Classique because I love its the box shape and I often wear it. It’s great because you can wear it on your shoulder and inside put a camera, a passport, a lipstick… I love it!!!

- If you were a Chanel nail polish?

Particulière, a crystallized chestnut color because I love when it gives the impression of being an extension of the skin, it makes it look freaky.

- If you were a Chanel perfume?

Gardénia, it’s my favorite. I know all the names, how cool is that? Have I passed my Chanel test?

- If you were a Chanel collection?

The last couture fashion show was incredible! The last couture show was fantastic! The jeans were amazing. I had also loved the Paris-London show with the Amy Winehouse like hairstyles.

 

Vanessa Paradis’ CHANEL portrait

- If you were one of the Chanel symbols?

I’m undecided between N°5 and Camélia… I’m having a hard time answering this question! But you are asking me to choose so I’ll pick the black jacket, it keeps me warmer!

- If you were a Chanel bag?

They all drive me crazy!!! These days, I have a black leather one with golden jewelry. I love it.

- If you were a Chanel nail polish?

The Dragon red.

- If you were a Chanel perfume?

N°5!!! It changes throughout the day, it’s incredible the life this perfume has!

- If you were a Chanel collection?

The others manage to answer this? When I leave a couture show, I am amazed by couture… But I would possibly be a cruise collection because I find that it really combines both prêt-à-porter and couture. There is some dramatic eveningwear but at the same time there are easier-to-wear pieces of clothing.

 

Clémence Poésy's CHANEL portrait

- If you were one of the Chanel symbols?

Camélia, it smells the best!

- If you were a Chanel bag?

The Classique in black.

- If you were a Chanel nail polish?

The Rouge Noir. Everyone will answer the same thing, no?

- If you were a Chanel perfume?

Coco Mademoiselle, It’s the perfume I wear.

- If you were a Chanel collection?

A cruise show, maybe the one coming up? The setting sure is appealing

 

Anna Mouglalis' CHANEL portrait

- If you were one of the Chanel symbols?

Transgression! It's one of the symbols of the fashion house and I find that Karl always transgresses in his own way; it's the only couture fashion house that doesn't use women as sexual objects. All the young women have been on the catwalk giving off elegance, sensuality and eroticism but they are not objects.

- If you were a Chanel bag?

I like the silver chained Classique, I have a supple perforated leather one, which is very pleasant to wear.

- If you were a Chanel nail polish?

I absolutely adore Pirate!

- If you were a Chanel perfume?

If I were a perfume… My grandmother wore N°5, she was married to a plumber, it was her luxury and to me she portrayed elegance. Those little drops of N°5 behind her ears were a ritual. It's funny how life turns out, today, I find myself in this fashion house as if it were a dream so I think about my grandmother often.

- If you were a Chanel collection?

A couture collection because couture is just insane!!! There is such a know-how and it triggers lots of emotion like all rare things do. I'm also lucky enough to know the women who make the dresses. We no longer realize the work it entails, it is not been taken over by the industry, and you can put a face to every stitch. It is inaccessible and excessive.
