Chanel Summer 2011 Collection

If I could have one wish this year, it would be to look just like this ad for Chanel’s Summer 2011 makeup collection.   I must have this most perfect shade of pink accented here by a pop of yellow and framed in the dreamiest of blues.  Oh- and the flawless face, sultry windblown hair,  stunning green eyes and luscious lips wouldn’t hurt either.  Simply gorgeous.

This photo of Helen Williams is from “Skin Deep: Inside the World of Black Fashion Models”, a fascinating book about the rich history, struggles and achievements of women of color in the fashion industry.  I love how the vivid yellow chiffon looks against her beautiful brown skin and my devotion to white gloved elegance has me completely smitten!  The stunning Ms. Williams began her modeling career back in 1954 and, according to the book, “was the most photographed model of color of her era”.  Interestingly, all of this glamour was created for an ad for feminine hygiene products.  My, how times have changed!
