>> Chanel and New York's Museum of Modern Art honored Pedro Almodovar last night at the museum's annual film benefit. “Everyone loves Pedro Almodóvar,” Karl Lagerfeld said of the lengthy guest list. “He is a genius.”
Many were thus dressed in Chanel — Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Wintour, Elizabeth Olsen, Chloe Moretz — save a few: Lara Stone came in Calvin Klein, Joan Smalls in Tom Ford, Miranda Kerr in Peter Pilotto, and Karen Elson in Roberto Cavalli.
Warning: it's very likely that Chanel fans a little older than the Kids Space's targeted demographic will have a little too much fun daydreaming about Chanel heels and quilted bags with their ideal color combinations. The kiddies might just have to wait their turn.
Ingenious marketing ploy targeting very young future customers? Or just another fun, harmless activity for tots?
Kristin Cavallari let out her inner child at the launch of Nintendo's Super Mario 3D Land in Hollywood.

>> Carine Roitfeld has dropped hints about working with Karl Lagerfeld on an upcoming book, and now there's photographic proof. A preview — and details about the collaboration — are in the new issue of V magazine, on newsstands tomorrow, Nov. 9.
The project, which is still being produced, centers around the classic black Chanel tweed jacket. Lagerfeld has been shooting (and Roitfeld styling) portraits of stylish women (and a couple of men) of varying ages and occupations — think actors, models, and heiresses — wearing the jacket, in order to explore the many different ways it can be worn. "This jacket is a vital and irrational impulse open to creativity and transformation," Lagerfeld explains, adding: "Especially in the hands of Carine Roitfeld."
Pippa Middleton beat the cold-weather blues in a city-chic ensemble while strolling through London.

Honestly, we're not sure how we feel about kids under 18 sporting Chanel, but Hailee Steinfeld and Elle Fanning showed there's a way to wear it without compromising their fun-loving youthfulness. Elle went for a black and white look, accessorizing with a super cool clear clutch and a pretty bow ring, while Hailee chose a short gray dress and accessorized with the cutest silver-tipped booties we've seen. The accessories really make their outfits feel fun and age-appropriate. Whose look do you like better?
Coco would be so proud to see Kate Bosworth emulate the modern Chanel woman so expertly — and one might add, effortlessly. For a Chanel event in Los Angeles, Kate went for an all-black look, mixing a tweed skirt with a silk blouse, and accessorizing with a small Chanel bag and chain-detail booties. Here's what we love about the look:
Kate's outfit is ultrasimple to re-create, and the silhouette is ideal for cocktail parties or even a day at the office. Because her blouse has detailing, and her shoes have chain embellishment, we suggest choosing chain jewelry — a bracelet or short necklace to layer under the collar — to create a similar effect.
