Milan Fashion Week had ended and now Paris Fashion Week has started… I’m so in love with many French Designs and perfumes… One of my favorites is “Chanel No.5”.

It has such a classic and beautiful scent. Nobody can deny that this is one of the best selling perfumes in the world.

Chanel No.5 was introduced first time at Christmas in 1921. And it has been available for sales since mid 1922. Thanks to the legendary, Parisian couturier, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel. A person behind the formula and invention was Earnest Beaux… He gathered and collected few pieces of scents and delicately mixed …it finally became “Chanel No.5”.

In 1953, Marilyn Monroe was asked what she wore at night… she simply replied “five drops of Chanel No.5”.

Feel so privileged to own one… simple, yet very classy…

It is a fashion week in Paris for Haute Couture, Fall 2010. We are talking about glamor and exquisite styles. There are many outstanding designs from major houses. Yes, I love seeing exclusive runway shows. Let’s see what is the trend for this season.

1. Symmetrical Prints

Chanel is going strong with symmetrical prints, still maintaining with Coco-like design. Dresses are huge. We still see ruffles and tweed fabric as their signature as always. Karl Lagerfeld is brilliant, he is the man behind Chanel and he always wear sunglasses day and night!

5. Little Black Dress – LBD

Yes, ladies… LBD is big for all seasons. You will love to have a sharp style. Black dresses can make your figure look thinner ( in case you are going for it). Jean Paul Gaultier is famous for his edgy design. His collection is full of funky dresses, plus make-up and hair. A pair of black gladiator heels would go wonderfully with edgy black dress.  Let’s have fun with our creativity for LBD, shall we?

1. Illamasqua “Liar” – It is a quirky shade of pink, which has a blue undertone. This is a very matte finish with high level of pigmentation, great for achieving 60s retro look.
