Have You Guys Seen This?

barefoot in Chanel

all photographs via
Karl Lagerfeld photographed Gisele Bündchen 
wandering the deserted streets of Saint Germain-des-Prés, 
pausing at iconic locations like...
Café de Flore, a spot you'll find packed with fashion editors during Paris fashion week.

imagine the army of photographer's assistants,
hair stylists, makeup people,
& an entire other group for wardrobe,
and possibly a trailer for changing.

haute couture, my ladies, is show business X10

& didn't Mr. L make this look entirely possible?

Bonjour chère amie,

Superbes photos... et le romantisme de Saint Germain des prés !

Gros bisous ♡

Sally said...

Dear Marsha, I did see one of the pictures :)
All I can think is..beautiful, evocative, iconic ...Chanel, Monsieur Karl, Gisele and Paris Voila!. This is why they say 'Paris is not a city, it is a world'

Gorgeous......the second pic is my fave, a triple treat, Chanel, Paris and Gisele all in one:)

Lucky to catch a fashion shoot outside Le Maison de Victor Hugo once. Giselle is lovely in Lagerfeld. Her presence in his couture would make any street beautiful.
Happy New Year, Marsha!

Lynne, the photography, art direction, just everything, make these photos so evocative and timeless. I love the way he shot her, off center. So interesting.

Marsha Splenderosa said...

Exactly right, Tina !!!

Marsha Splenderosa said...

You said it so well, Sally !!!

I love the second pic of Giselle as it doesn't look as contrived, however it would look even better if she was wearing a gorgeous pair of high heeled shoes. Bet her tootsies were freezing! Love the suit, and the amazing pointed collar of the shirt give the entire outfit an entirely new feel.

Lovely Paris - it's time to return - but I have to wait until September!
Hugs - Mary

It certainly IS show biz, but oh-so-glam. (Gisele would look good in anything, with or without shoes, and with or without Paris as a backdrop.)

So elegant!

A little fashion fantasy can go a long way - oh to be sauntering through Paris, barefoot and draped in Chanel!

He will always be a trail-blazer. Even when we think he's not, POW, he comes right back with this kind of genius thinking.
