Jewls Review of Chanel Resort 12' Collection

Gah! What a nutty couple days for Blogger, right?! Such a pain with all of our posts popping up and down? Being able to sign in and then not? Let's hope that the server stays normal for us, yah? Or else we can all go on strike and get Tumblrs...... Wait, we already have one. ;) HA!  Lize and I have to admit though... It has been fantastic to have a place to archive all of our random edgier and artsy photos that we love!  Onward and outward. Fingers crossed, Blogspot. As Tim Gunn would say, "Make it work!"

This past Monday, Karl Lagerfeld showed his Resort 2012 collection in Antibes, France. Drawing a smaller crowd this year, just a few our favorite little starlets showed up for the dinner hosted by Karl himself the night before and the fashion show itself. The bathing suits and floor length dresses this season really caught my eye.  I just had to review it and do a post to show you all my favorites!  Happy Friday babies!

 This bathing suit is so Gidget! I am obsessed! The jacket is just magical. I love the whole thing!
Ok, this is my favorite dress out of the whole collection! Can we all take a moment of silence! The drop waist. The cross embellishment. I cannot take it!
 The pockets on this dress slay me! My sister would murder this look.
 This blouse is gorgeous. Look at the gathering on the wrists!
 I love this suit. Lize would murder it with her teensy little size 00 body!
I normally NEVER go for wild prints or colorful pieces like this, but this looks so fun! I love it!
 I have no words for this dress. The pockets are so genius. It is so victorian. I would love this to be my dress rehearsal dress for my wedding!
 Such a beautiful basic white dress for every woman. Simple yet gorgeous.
 The collar of this dress is the most unique thing I have seen in a while. So Karl!
So mermaid-esque. I love the tulle hem and the mesh at the top is so classy!

Chanel Attendees:

Can we just start with this photo of Alexa, Poppy Delevigne, and Laura Bailey. These three girls are my top faves out of all young starlets right now. Poppy is killing it everywhere she goes. She was at The Soho House last time I was there and I have to admit she is killer chic in person too. I have a mad girl crush on her. They are even more disgusting all together like this. I can't deal with them. (Lize and I say "disgusting" for things that are insanely gorgeous to us, don't get confused, ha.)
This dress is to die for. I feel like I would have worn it to a piano recital when I was like 6. I am obsessed. Alexa can do no wrong. Lize and I used to pretend we didn't like her, but then we came to our senses and realized we were just being jealous of her wardrobe. Bahaha. We have loved her for years now. She's such a button.
Ok, I was literally driving down Rodeo three days ago and saw this ensemble on the mannequin in the window and thought to myself "Ok, you would have to be like six feet tall to wear that, ugh, it's sick." And here Poppy is pulling it off effortlessly without looking trashy! I love how she knew to pair it with flats with those long legs of hers. If she had put heels on with this look, it would have TOTALLY ruined it for me. I love that she has class and restraint even though her body is perfection. That is a rarity.
Clemence Posey = Perfection in this dress. It is so fitting for a blonde. I love that she has her hair pulled back into a simple bun. Ugh, I just adore her. I really do. I already did a style icon post on her ages ago, but maybe I'll do another just cause I love her so much! 
 Caroline Sieber donning a more like ladylike choice. I like it!!! This lace number is darling! Hate those shoes though.
Wooooah, is that...? No. Ok, but that is hella short. Not into this. Errr...
 Again. The killer threesome. I love how stoic they all look. I bet they're so fun together. I live for this.
 Boo. Rachel looks so shleppy!!! This is such a bad look!? Brush your hair at least? Agh!
 Vanessa Paradis is the epitome of mysteriously chic to me. I love her. This is a rad piece on her.
 Gorgeous. They are weirdly reminding me of MKA here. British version. Bahaha.

Chanel Resort Dinner Party at Hotel du Cap hosted by Karl Lagerfeld:

Table setting. So cute.
Ha! Precious.
He is so in love with her!
 Fun party pics. Clemence being silly.
 Alexa and Poppy hogging all the cute boys. DUH.
 Blake looking almost bridal.
 Love Vanessa in these colors. Oh and the curls? How sweet does she look?
 Agggghhhhh, both not looking fab. One totally underdressed and one totally overdressed. I mean, girls... come on!
 They could learn a thing or two about appropriateness from Alexa. Look at how elegant this dress is! And those flats! Ugh, to die for! Young girls need to learn that you don't need to rely on 5 inch heels for confidence every time you go to an event!!!
 Poppy dancing. Hi, cheekbones. 
Clemence Posey looking darling as usual. Ha, I love her face. Marine Vacth looks totally out of it but insanely gorgeous and natural as always.
 Best buddies. Omg, they are so cute. Look at Alexa's face. Bahahha. I can't stop laughing!
