This year’s Met Costume Institute Gala may have been all about Miuccia Prada and Elsa Schiaparelli, but Karl Lagerfeld made sure the house of Chanel was represented on the red carpet, even though he himself couldn’t be there. Poppy Delevingne and Stella Tennant both showed up to the annual event in Lagerfeld’s designs—as did one Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, the Pirates of the Caribbean star and last year’s Cannes Film Festival Chopard Trophée winner. The half-Catalan, half-French actress took the steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the arm of French actor Gaspard Ulliel, whom you may remember from the Martin Scorsese-directed short film for the brand’s Bleu de Chanel fragrance.
But before the flashbulbs went off on Fifth Avenue and glamour ensued, we met up with Bergès-Frisbey at the Bowery Hotel, where she was holed up—Diet Coke in hand—with makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi and hairstylist Vinz. “I’m thinking a metallic gray eye and a soft lip, very natural skin. Nothing too strong because she’s very young. Then beautiful lashes,” Farolfi said, planning out her face-painting approach while looking at Astrid’s gorgeous, two-tiered Chanel couture dress that was embellished with white sequins and metallic silver chains. Prepping skin with Chanel’s Precision Lotion Douceur Gentle Hydrating Toner, Hydra Beauty Serum and Hydramax + Active Moisture Gel Cream, Farolfi layered a veil of its Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup in B10 on top. “With the combination of [the skincare and the foundation], she doesn’t need any powder. We’ll see, though,” the makeup artist said as she dusted Chanel’s Joues Contraste Blush in Rose Ecrin across Bergès-Frisbey’s cheeks. “I usually do a picture with the flash at the end with her phone, not mine, to see if it shines.” Continue Reading “EXCLUSIVE: Makeup Bag Check: Astrid Bergès-Frisbey” »
It goes without saying that we wish were in Tokyo for last night’s cocktail, dinner, and Chanel Haute Couture reprise that went on in Japan’s capital for a select group of Karl Lagerfeld’s friends and fans who were able to make the trip. Not only do we live for the spectacle that is Tokyo—its bustling shops, over-the-top hotels, and unreal fish markets—but it just so happens that we loved Lagerfeld’s Spring Couture stewardess homage the first time we saw it, back in January. But maybe not as much as his Métiers d’Art pre-fall collection, which we still dream about four months later (please allow us to direct your attention to looks 41 and 64, if you need a little refresher course)—which is why it was hard to miss French-Spanish actress Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, who selected look 65 off that Raj-inspired runway for the evening’s festivities. As we pored over images of the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s dress, we noticed that while she eschewed Peter Philips’ dark, kohl-rimmed eyes from the show, she did incorporate Sam McKnight’s bejeweled hairstyle. Rather than work one of the large-scale pieces of Chanel Fine Jewelry that McKnight clipped into model’s dreaded locks back in December, Bergès-Frisbey selected a long string of gold and lavender crystal orbs, which she wound through a long, tousled, side-slung braid. Her off-the-catwalk interpretation only made us love the look that much more. Thoughts on her haute hair?
