Chanel Lipstick Video Pays Tribute to Erwin Blumenfeld

Rouge Alert: Lips and Eyes Star in Chanel's New Beauty Film

Chanel's makeup department pays tribute to the legendary fashion photographer Erwin Blumenfeld in a new video about its Rouge Allure lipsticks. Like Blumenfeld's iconic January 1950 cover of Vogue, this Solve Sundsbo-directed clip features nothing more than a pair of red lips and green eyes. The rest of model Barbara Palvin's visage fades in with the one-minute video's cream background. While Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine" plays in the background, Palvin's lip color changes to reveal the other shades in the collection. See Blumenfeld's original work of art in motion in the video below.
