Ashlee Simpson Wentz was decked out in vintage Chanel at the Decades Denim launch. These dangling shoulder dusters were a perfect choice for the young actress and her new pixie ‘do. The gold diamond design with ruby glass beads stood out beautifully against Ashlee’s black sequined vintage Chanel dress. These bold gems make this modern day Twiggy look like a vintage princess.


Keira Knightley is on a serious roll with three fantastic looks in one day. She started in Chanel at a photocall, then followed with Valentino for a premiere. For her finale, Keira donned a look from Chanel’s Spring 2011 collection at dinner.

Keira’s skirt was a semi-sheer with gauzy black layers and a tweed-printed overlay. She then tucked a thin black sweater in for contrast. Unlike the runway version of this look, she opted against the chunky jewelry and kept the outfit simple by topping it off with black suede pumps.

Chanel Biker Chic

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY is fully embracing her starring role in the new Chanel campaign as shooting gets underway. Working the biker chic look, the actress was spotted yesterday in the Place de Concord in Paris.

Wearing a camel-coloured, form-fitting biker outfit with a matching helmet, the actress – sporting a new bobbed haircut – posed on a vintage-looking motorbike for the new adverts.

Knightley first starred as a Karl Lagerfeld muse for Chanel in 2006.

Surfing legend Laird Hamilton is the new Chanel ambassador for its diving watch, the recently released J-12 Marine.

Laird Hamilton is hailed as one of the most revolutionary big-wave surfers, a co-inventor of tow-in surfing and generous philanthropist. He is a true waterman, passionate for the ocean, and his life has been dedicated to developing new techniques and pushing the boundaries of big wave surfing. Laird is most passionate, however, about environmental causes, focusing his efforts to protecting the oceans and influencing others to follow in his path.

John Galantic, President and Chief Operating Officer of Chanel, Inc. states, “Laird’s daring spirit and love for the ocean are in perfect harmony with the inspiration behind the J12 Marine watch. We are excited for him to bring his energy, original style and fearlessness to this iconic watch.”

“I am honored to have the opportunity to be an ambassador for Chanel’s J12 Marine Watch and to work with a brand of such quality and heritage,” states Laird Hamilton.

This watch is authentic. I have put it through ‘the test’ and it has survived me. As a result, I look forward to representing the J12 Marine and this exciting new partnership.”

In honor of this partnership, Chanel is pleased to support the Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit, environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches, for all people, through conservation, activism, research and education.
