Chanel's Metiers d'art












Some backstage pictures for the Chanel's Metiers d'art collection. The collection is inspired by India's Maharajas and the palaces' architecture. Can you say swwwooon?!

I've always enjoyed looking at backstage and set up pictures more than the runway. Maybe I'm a peeping tom curious by nature, and one day I will be a white floaty ghost that hang out in your hallway- no, that's not creepy. Creepy would be to hang out in your bathroom. So let's be friends!

  13. Oh what gorgoeus pictures. I couldn't place my hand on it but I thought their models' headpieces looked ethnic and then I saw they were inspired by India, gorgeous!

  14. I love the last pic. But I gotta say that most models these days scare the beliving SHIT out of me D: They're these HUGE creatures and they really aren't that beautiful to me.. I know that models are all about being able to conform to whatever product you're showing, but it just scares me. O_O"

  15. LOL, I used to flost around the ceiling of our hallway--until my dad caught me one night. Haha, that's one of my favorite stories.

    I'm with you, I think the behind the scenes of almost anything is cool--much more interesting than what's offered to the customers. And curious is good, it makes you notice things other people mostly miss.

    I DO like that buildig.

    But, being a guy, the closest I got to swooning was the 3 tiered serving tray full of food. =)
