The Bling Ring had its Cannes Film Festival premiere last night, where stars Emma Watson, Katie Chang, and Taissa Farmiga all represented their various high fashion tastes in Chanel Couture, Dior, and Valentino, respectively. Their fearless leader, director Sofia Coppola, stuck to her favorite designer when she walked the carpet in a piece Marc Jacobs designed for Louis Vuitton.

Karl Lagerfeld presented his resort collection for Chanel in Singapore last week. The lineup revolved around the classic color palette of black, white, and navy, but it was the eyes where you saw color pop off the runway. Chanel’s contributing makeup artist Peter Philips created the electric look—thanks to Chanel’s Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in True Blue—which lit up the eyes against an otherwise fresh, clean face. He finished it off by lining top lids with Noir Intense, a black hue, and swiped on several coats of Chanel’s Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. Daring enough to try the look yourself?

Tilda Swinton is Chanel‘s newest spokesperson, and the label just revealed a sneak peek at the star’s debut campaign, shot with Karl Lagerfeld behind the lens. In this first look, Swinton models pieces from Chanel’s Scotland-inspired pre-fall 2013 collection, entitled Paris-Édimbourg Métiers d’Art. “Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Édimbourg collection,” Lagerfeld said in a statement. “She is of course Scottish, but more than that she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance.” See the campaign in full later this month—with Swinton in bold tartan and tweed pieces, of course—and head over to chanel-news.com to peep more pictures from Swinton’s shoot.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first-ever Chanel boutique, Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld cast Keira Knightley to play Coco Chanel in his new short film to mark the milestone, and the trailer alone is already serving up major style inspiration! The film is aptly-named Once Upon A Time… and tells the story of the designer’s first outpost in Deauville, France. Knightley has been the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance for years and regularly showcases the label’s designs on the red carpet, so it’s a fitting tribute to the fashion icon. Once Upon A Time… will debut in Singapore on May 8, a night before the label’s Cruise Collection shows, but you can watch it online that same day on chanel-news.com. Get a sneak peek now by watching the trailer above.

The Odeon restaurant in New York turned into a mini Chanel runway at the 8th Annual Chanel Artists Dinner, when guests including Alexa Chung and Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka wore straight-off-the-runway looks for their night out to celebrate the Tribeca Film Festival. “It’s fabulous to wear Chanel,” said 13-year-old Shipka, who chose look 24 from the label’s spring 2013 show. “It’s truly amazing.” Chung agreed: “It has so much history and class that the clothing feels like that,” she said. Though, wearing Chanel wasn’t a requirement for the evening, which was also shared by Uma Thurman, How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor, rising star Mickey Sumner, and the festival’s co-founder Robert DeNiro. Taraji P. Henson enjoyed the night—pinot noir in hand—in a vibrant blue design by Stella and Jamie. Click the photo to see more.

Ooh, la, la! While Paris Fashion Week ended today, the très chic runway offerings will continue to inspire our wardrobe and beauty choices for months to come. The creative hair and makeup looks showcased at Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Miu Miu were among our favorites, and we loved the different statements made by each. Vuitton and Miu Miu both opted for a saturated bordeaux lip, while Chanel transferred the drama to the models’ lids with aptly-placed silver glitters.
