|Chanel brings a touch of Miami glam to Toronto Not for Windsor Arms hotel and condo developer George Friedman, who won the live auction at a recent SickKids fundraiser. Friedman bid $40,000 (yes, you read that right) on a limited edition Chanel purse. The 2.55 handbag, so called because Coco Chanel designed it in February 1955, is an envelope style in sequined brown alligator skin and is the only one of its kind available in Canada. The few others that exist have been valued at $41,000, partly because they require 15 hours of embroidery work by the legendary house of Lesage. Friedman bought the bag for his daughter Samantha, a pretty young woman dressed like so many others that night in a little black dress with a strand of Chanel faux pearls. Moncler Down Jacket Men With Rabbit Hooded Black That s because Chanel was the evening s title sponsor, having flown in its 2008 cruise collection and a team of ultra thin models (of the 35 models, six were local) to wear them. Kind of ironic that the beneficiary of the event was HealthyKids International, a new SickKids Foundation initiative aimed at improving health care in under resourced countries. But this is high fashion, after all. And high it was. With so much Chanel both on and off the runway, even designer Karl Lagerfeld would have been impressed. The event, held last week, began with cocktails in Heritage Court at Exhibition Place, a cavernous space draped in white curtains for the night. Wrought iron gazebos were erected over white wingback chairs for guests to rest and gaze at the sponsors logos, which were projected onto temporary waterfalls. Towering lifeguard chairs and giant life preservers completed the Miami theme the Raleigh hotel being where Chanel s cruise collection was paraded last June. MC Jeanne Beker even wore a silver sequined tuxedo jacket similar to the one Lagerfeld Monlcer Waistcoat - Women Vest Blue himself wore at the Miami show. No problem that the famous Raleigh swimming pool where the models appeared to walk on water was a thousand miles away. A runway length pool of blue, six inches deep, was erected in the middle of the dining hall, and topped with a curvilinear black path just like the one in Miami. Blue ripples floated across giant projection screens on the walls. Chanel collections always amaze with Lagerfeld s endless riffs on Coco s classics, and this was no different. There were knitted beach cover ups with curved sleeves, pastel striped swimwear, pink tie dye logo T shirts (for men, too!), jackets marrying vinyl and tweed, and one stunning white dress that had a huge tummy cut out revealing a bed of red roses. Some models carried the much hyped canvas totes modelled after the paper shopping bags from Chanel s store on rue Cambon in Paris. Interesting, too, to see how real people wear Chanel. Architect Dee Dee Taylor Hannah layered strands of Chanel pearls and chains over a grey Gucci silk shirt, grey silk Prada shorts and a short fox fur vest by Pink Tartan. Personal shopper Jodi Stodgell, who takes Toronto women on tours of New York designer showrooms, was dressed in a black dress by her discovery, Ruben Singer, with 10 year old Chanel collar and cuffs. The white cotton accessories were studded with sparkly CC logos and No. 5 s. Stodgell Moncler Womenspring Autumn Blue Jacket also carried a Chanel clutch in black boucl a woman here tonight with a suit in the same fabric, Stodgell said. I love the clasp because it s the same as the top of a bottle of Chanel No. 5. Barnicke, who is often turning heads in Chanel, decided to wear a pink floral dress by new favourite designer, Giambattista Valli. But surely her purse must be Chanel, I thought.
Chanel brings style to Tribeca Film Festival In attendance at Odeon: Robert DeNiro, Chloe Sevigny, Jason Sudeikis, Naomi Watts and various artists, who were Fashion Moncler Mens Down Jackets Brownish Gray being honored. The legendary French fashion house dressed some of the attendees, including Watts, who wore a clingy Chanel sheath dress. But not Sevigny. "I m not wearing Chanel. I just got back from China and I went home to see my mom for Easter, so I didn t have time to go in and pull anything," says Sevigny. "But I am wearing a Chanel bag and lipstick."

Moncler Men Down Jackets Button No Hat Orange And the actress wasn t involved in Tribeca, and hadn t planned ahead enough to hit any screenings. Save for one. "A friend of mine is showing a documentary. Michael Rapaport. We used to be roommates like 15 years ago. When I was broke, he let me live in his apartment for free, so I m going to support him," says Sevigny. Sudeikis, who stars in July s buzzed about comedy Horrible Bosses, stopped by. "I m on a jury on the festival and they invited us here," says Sudeikis. "I have a Chanel changer for my television." One of the last to arrive was Fair Game actress Watts, who came with her mum. "How much Chanel do I own? I don t own a lot. But every now and again, they send treats my way," says Watts.

One day, I ll get more actively involved, but not yet," says Moncler Official Online Shop Watts.
