Chanel Denim bag

I saw the denim Chanel shopping bag in person last week- both the large and the medium size. The smaller sized one only has the chain straps. I love the bag but I think it’s just too expensive for a denim bag– especially since the words on the bag were only silkscreened (as opposed to embroidered). I really like the bag though, but I already have one in apricot that I've been using as a beach bag during the summer. But it looks like this bag is set to become a winning style as well! Go check the Chanel denim bag up close and see for yourself at all the Chanel boutiques in London.

Gwyneth Paltrow Covers InStyle UK January 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow covers InStyle UK January 2013 and was interviewed by her close friend Diane von Furstenberg and here are the highlights...

On not being able to have it all - and her trying to cut the amount of work she does:
“ I look for an interesting supporting part about once a year. That’s the most I can manage. Some women can do it and that’s fantastic, but I can’t. You make choices as a wife and mother, don’t you? You can’t have it all. I don’t care what it looks like.”

On the success of her relationship:
DVF: Would you say the success of a relationship comes from the fact that you’re not needy?”
gp “I would say it’s because I focus more on understanding than on being understood.”

On having more children
“My brain says, ‘Oh, I think I’m done, the kids are big now and I don’t want to go back to changing diapers’. But a part of me would love to have another. Of course, I’m old now!”

On the effect her father had on her
“My dad and I had one of those incredibly lucky, love-of-your-life relationships. The main reason I believe in myself comes from my father. I felt so understood by him.”
dvf “I think if your father makes you confident, you wind up having healthy relationships with men.”
gp “I agree. I mean, I stumbled a few times in that department. But I feel like I wasn’t struggling to figure out men.”
On her diet / exercise regime
“I was very strict for a while. I was macrobiotic for a couple of years, then I got pregnant and just ate ice cream. What I’ve learnt is I want to enjoy my life and food is a big part of it. I love to cook and feed people. I cook every day.
I don’t like sweets. My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine, or French fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger.”

Who is Hudson Kroenig, Karl Lagerfeld's three-year-old muse

Hudson Kroenig on the Chanel Metiers d'Art 2012/13, with his model dad, Brad
 Chanel's métiers d’art show in Scotland last night saw the little model-in-the-making take another trip down the runway for Chanel with his father, model Brad Kroenig.
 Meet Hudson Kroenig, the three-year-old son of 32-year-old male model Brad Kroenig, and godson of Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel's creative director. Dad Brad, who joined him on the catwalk (and who was overheard by WWD telling him to do his best 'Blue Steel' before last night's show) is a long time muse of Lagerfeld's - the designer has even dedicated a whole exhibition and book to photographs of him.
The pair met on a shoot for V Man in Biarritz some years ago, and Brad admits that without Karl he wouldn't have a career. It's only fitting then, that he gave Lagerfeld the honour of being godfather to Hudson when he was born in 2009.
