Get the Look: Chanel 2011 Paris-Byzance Metiers d’Art Show Beauty - Photo Review

There are no other words to describe Peter Phillips’ vision of Chanel beauty at the recent Paris-Byzance Metiers d’Art Show Beauty than “Byzantine regal.”

Phillips says, “The theme of the collection, Paris-Byzance is a great inspiration on it’s own. The links and associations with Chanel are rich and plenty. Karl (Lagerfeld) showed us the world-famous mosaic portrait of Theodora, the Empress of the Byzantine Empire Mosaic from the Saint-Vital de Ravenne Basilica, which very naturally became the inspiration for the show’s makeup. The portrait gave me a focus point : the red eye shadow/liner that she wears on the arch of her eyebrows. This look is all about light and rich textures. The choreography between gold, bronze, black and red can be easily personalized according to the desires of each woman.”
