Coco & Karl

15 Dec

 

Channeling Chanel - Cigarette = Prop!

I have to go a bit back in time for this one.  Not all the way back to the time before January 10, 1971 when

Cloning Karl

the world lost one of the greatest designers of all time – Coco Chanel – but back to October 31, 2010 – when I channeled Chanel and Brett cloned Karl (Lagerfeld) for a Halloween celebration…Beijing style.

 

We hit the town with a fantastic group of friends dressed in a variety of costumes including:  a Piece of “Bad Press”, a Greek Goddess, a French Painter, a Bride and Groom, and my personal favorite – Barbie and Ken.  The night started at the Saddle Cantina (one of our favorite spots) to fill up on mexican food and margaritas.  Although, I am pretty positive that Coco would have preferred Steak Tartare and Champagne….if she ate at all!

After dinner we set out for an official Halloween Party at LAN Club – a Phillipe Starck designed restaurant and lounge.  The party was packed with locals in fabulous costumes.  I was thrilled to see how much the Chinese love a costume.  I would wear a costume everyday if I could.  Perhaps in Beijing…I can.  At the party we spotted  a Lego, a variety of Pandas and Disney Characters, and of course a slew of girls dressed as scantily clad as possible – because after all – that is what Halloween is all about, right?

The music was a big highlight of the party.  There were 3 rooms with completely different genres of tunes – so if we got tired of one – we just danced our way to another area.  Because LAN is also a restaurant, we were able to find a deserted private room to rest our feet and avoid the long lines at the loo.  It was a win – win!

Halloween in Beijing.  I give it 4 Blonde’s out of 5!

**Please NOTE – The cigarette is a prop.  It was never lit!

    I guess it is really an indicator of a great costume when your face is not hidden and your own mother doesn’t recognize you. And….who IS that man with you!!!!ha

    HILARIOUS! I love how Brett is such a good sport! And I love “4 blondes out of 5” – you are the funniest. 🙂
