Fashion Film: Chanel, ‘Babes Meet Les Beiges’

February 26th, 2013

Check out our très jolie behind-the-scenes video of our Chanel shoot. Plus, a very special chance to drink fizz and get your hair and make-up done by the Wonderland team in Chanel’s new London boutique in Covent Garden.

We’re all about simple, almost androgynous radiance for spring/summer. So for the Babes Issue, we photographed Select’s Flo Dron for a very special beauty shoot in the sparkly new Chanel boutique in London’s Covent Garden.

Why? Because Chanel Beauty’s creative director Peter Philips is paying tribute to the fresh, outgoing side of the house’s founder, with a new makeup collection called Les Beiges. It’s all about a healthy, natural flush – the kind of glow you might expect from a woman who’s carefree, unpretentious, and gets plenty of Vitamin D.

The first Les Beiges product, the Healthy Glow Sheer Powder, launches March 15, and there’s few better places to check it out than in Chanel Beauty’s new boutique in London’s Covent Garden, which hosts regular events with advice and expertise courtesy of the world’s leading makeup artists,

nail technicians and stylists.
