so before i even attempt to comment on Chanel, i have to say that honestly, if i were 40 and a millionaire, it would be Chanel all day, every day.
However, i'm having a hard time understanding where Karl is coming from with the current collection. It is just so unflattering! All the suiting looks incredibly matronly to me. The whole suit-shorts thing is just not working out. Meanwhile, the dresses look like something an overweight person would wear to cover up their midsection! Everything from the hair pouf, to the ice queen lame´ silver, to the enlarged dresses is just so off in my opinion.

these shorts just look like something my grandmother would wear...she's 80..
neon yellow with silver tinsel trim!?!?!!!??!??!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?!!?!??!??!??!?!?!?!?
i don't even know...the proportions are just so wrong. makes a size 2 model look like she has some serious child-bearin' hips.
egyptian princess gone 80's glam?
like a 2001 space odyssey/zoolander wedding on crack. seriously, Lagerfeld, a tight shiny silver men's suit? i feel for ya abbey..
granted, it IS Chanel so there were a few redeeming pieces, such as these intricately detailed cape-like things:
well, i don't know what bizarre crevice of your mind this collection came from, Karl, but please, NEVER AGAIN!
on a more serious note, R.I.P. J.D. Salinger. Holden Caulfield will forever be one of my most beloved literary characters.
