On Tuesday the hallowed brand transformed Paris Fashion Week's Grand Palais venue into a grocery aisle — complete with haute couture condiments, "Coco" branded beer, and ham and cheese emblazoned with the Chanel logo. Models, including Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne, wandered the aisles pushing shopping carts against the backdrop of pulsating pop music and the occasional loudspeaker blare ("Mrs. Martin is requested at the fresh foods department!"). It was a bold move for Chanel head designer Karl Lagerfeld, who once claimed to have never set foot inside a grocery store. "For me the supermarket is the pop art of today," he told Reuters. "It is not because you buy Chanel clothes that you should not be allowed into the supermarket." While you search for some semblance of logic in that statement, take a look at Karl's supermarket specials. —By Elise Sole
- Tue, Mar 4, 2014 3:13 PM EST | CommentsPhotographer Angie Keiser and her 4-year-old daughter "Mayhem" made a splash with their paper dresses duplicating the best in red carpet fashion. Now the mother and daughter pair are sharing their stylish paper recreations of the most memorable outfits from Sunday's Academy Awards, exclusively with the Good News.
The 4-year-old chose to recreate Jennifer Lawrence's bright red peplum dress, as well as Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o's gorgeous light blue gown. She also looks dapper in a paper tux modeled after Ellen's Oscar threads.
Mayhem and her mother have been making paper dresses together for the last nine months in their Cincinnati, OH home. "She had stopped playing with her regular dress up clothes and she would bring me goofy stuff, like a pillow or dish towel, and ask me to make her a dress," Angie tells the Good News. "I said, 'I bet we could make you a dress out of paper.' We did it, and she was hooked."
The two make paper dresses every day. "It's not so much about the dresses, it's more about the time we spend together creating them," says the crafty mom.
Check out our exclusive gallery of Mayhem's latest paper dresses, only on the Good News! Then head over to her Instagram page to see more of her stylish creations.
- Tue, Mar 4, 2014 5:12 PM EST | CommentsOk, winter, I'll be honest. I never liked you much to begin with, but this year you have really outdone yourself. Snow, sub-zero temperatures, ice storms … I've officially had it. Unfortunately, us poor souls north of the Mason-Dixon line are stuck with you for at least another few weeks. I've had my fill of gloomy neutrals. Gray skies, dirty white landscape, and beige sand and salt are all I see when I look out my window. If nature can't provide the color, I suppose I'll have to add it myself. Just like your favorite bright scarf or other accessories, adding vivid hues can really lift your mood. Here are 7 perfectly on-trend ways to add a pop of bright color to your beauty routine as we transition into spring. -By Sonya Lee Benham

- Tue, Mar 4, 2014 3:29 PM EST | CommentsMy daughter had one big reason for wanting to watch the 2014 Academy Awards®; she wanted to see Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem if you prefer) perform "Let it Go" from Frozen. But Idina's performance was the last of the night, forcing countless children across the nation to stay up past their bedtime to see their favorite song ever performed live. In our home, to pass the time until the BIG moment, I had my Frozen-loving 8-year-old give her opinions on what the rest of the stars were wearing, giving her unique take on the Oscar® red carpet fashions. -By: Sunny Chanel
