MISS SL 2016

The Definition of Class – The CHANEL challenge

Hello Ladies,

two weeks have been hopefully enough for you to recover energy and motivation for the upcoming three weeks of challenges. For this coming, new, challenge, we are guests at one of the most renowned fashion houses of the industry, CHANEL. Coco Chanel has been one of the most inspiring women of the last century, not only for fashion and accessories, but also for lifestyle. While CHANEL is a synonym for a certain kind of lifestyle, CHANEL is for many women THE defintion of classy, elegant and timeless chic. Of course CHANEL is also known for high priced Pret-a-Porter collections as well as for outstanding Haute Couture worn only by those, who can afford to pay outrageous prices for exclusive high-end fashion. Nevertheless, there is this quote by Coco Chanel, which is the inspiration for this particular CHANEL challenge:

The best things in life are free, the second best are very, very expensive

It surely is one of the most popular quotes believed to be said by Coco Chanel and it does express so much more about CHANEL as one of the leading brands. While the quote refers to the things in our life, we are unable to pay because they are invaluable, combined often with emotions, the quote determines the challenge literally. Please read below carefully:

                      • Please research the past and current CHANEL Pret-a-Porter and Haute Couture Collections, preferably for the Spring/Summer seasons, but not limited to. You are free to pick any you like, to get inspired for an outfit to style from.
                      • For this challenge you may only use up to (max) 3 purchased items and you have to use at least (min) 2 free items. 1 pair of an item, i.e. 2 shoes or 2 earrings of the same kind will count as 1.
                      • Further you are limited to two colors of your choice. any color is allowed – white, ivory or black count as a potential color of your choice too, of course.
                      • Following items are NOT considered as free/purchased items: poses, walks, skins, hairs, eyes, eye brows, lashes, make up, mesh body parts, hair bases, alpha masks, any body part in general.
