Today was a huge day for fashion girls and giddy gays across America. I'm in shock it wasn't a national holiday - one where little girls and young boys with Vogue's stashed under their bed could take off of school and pretend to drink Cosmopolitans in antsy anticipation for the dynamic duo of events yet to unfold. For today was the Chanel pre-fall 2016 runway show and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season premiere.
Karl Lagerfeld conquered Rome along with his Chanel-clad chicks (Bella Hadid and Freja Beha Erichsen paraded down the runway) for the brand's over-the-top Pre-Fall 2016 show. The Chanel woman of this season was chic, but disheveled. She was edgy, but refined. She was highbrow, but also lowbrow. Such is the magic of Chanel in Lagerfeld's hands - read onwards about my affinity for this collection and favorite looks here.
Such is also the magic of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. No really. Lowbrow meets highbrow. Chic meets disheveled (especially when a glass of wine is tossed with reckless abandon across a table). And there's something kicking in your subconscious that makes you want to play a character in this world. Alright, this is a stretch. But come on, it can't be a coincidence that the fashion Gods above bestowed upon us two reasons to worship at their altar. I have been a longtime fan of the Real Housewives. Love it or hate it, these girls come through with the fashunz. Lisa Vanderpump is the princess of pink and never ceases to impress me with her OTT glam. Kyle Richards has so many Chanel bags, she could build a freakin' house out of them. And Yolanda is just the most perfect woman on the planet - she's beautiful on the inside and the outside. And her uterus brought Gigi and Bella into this ugly world, giving it oodles of beauty and inducing boners worldwide.
And because the RHOBH ladies are ab-fab, I Photoshopped my favorite housewives into my fave looks from today's Chanel collection.
