We normally very much love Chanel and all the House represents as it is one of the biggest and best known in the world. What we don’t love is the latest news that Kristen Steward appears in the latest Chanel ad video all swaddled in haute couture. We adore Karl Lagerfeld’s vision, but we never could have imagined Stewart to be of the right material to do such a shoot. That said, we are happy that she is not also the face of the latest in holiday cosmetics collections released by Chanel that we are simply dying to get our hands on. It is the 20th century celebrations of Mademoiselle Chanel’s favourite shade of color – the Rouge Noir, while the Chanel Rouge Noir Absolument holiday 2015 makeup collection is full of limited edition items featuring the deeper, darker red colors. It is expected to become available in the United States on October 6, 2015 through the online store of the brand, finding itself fully available in France and the United Kingdom on the same day as well, though only at Selfridges, Harrods, Debenhams and House of Fraser when it comes to the latter country. The Asian launch won’t occur until the 16th of the month, a full 10 days later.
