Maison de Chanel has through successful years become to be one of the most recognized names in luxury and haute couture fashion. The well-known signature Chanel logotype (see picture), was originally founded by Coco Chanel and didn't become a trademake until the opening of the first Chanel stores.

Another Paris Fashion Week coming to an end. We love the Spring/Summer collection shows, they are always so full of color and fun and this year was no exception, especially Fashion House Ungaro who went all out with splashes of color on their runway! A very special highlight from the week was to see the first post-mortem Alexander McQueen collection from his protege Sarah Burton. Judging from this collection, the Alexander McQueen label will live on. Take a look at the some of our favorites from other collections like Chanel and Christian Dior below too!

British actress and Chanel muse Keira Knightley showed off a brand new hairdo at the Chanel Ready To Wear show at Paris Fashion Week this past weekend. We think she looks pretty amazing in the new bob style, especially because her skin is so gorgeous at the moment! What do you think - is it a hot look for her or not?

Kate Bosworth wore this beautiful chiffon dress hot from the Chanel Spring/Summer 2010 catwalk to a Chanel dinner party earlier this year and although she looked gorgeous, we have to ask ourselves if she actually managed to outdress the original look from the runway? What do you guys think?
Whose look do you prefer?

Kim Kardashian and her mom Kris Jenner are in Paris at the moment and they seem to have only one thing on their minds - shopping! The ladies went into Hermès yesterday and bought, wait for it, not one or two but SEVEN iconic Birkin bags and Kim spent 30 000 dollars on a rare crocodile tote as well! Wow! That means they spent more than 100 000 dollars in just Hermès boutique alone and we hear they stopped by Gucci and Chanel too. We are jealous!

Even though it's not the weirdest thing to see Chanel's head designer Karl Lagerfeld at Fashion Week in New York we're still surprised seeing as he's only two weeks away from showing his own collection in Paris! In any case we spotted the fashion veteran strolling around SoHo yesterday with his muse, model Baptiste Giabiconi!

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld held a big party in New York City last night to celebrate the opening of Chanel's funky new boutique in Soho. All Karl's favorite celebrity fashionistas were there, like Diane Kruger, Alexa Chung and Rachel Bilson, all in head to toe Chanel of course! Who do you think looks the best in the iconic brand's clothing though?
Best in Chanel?
