10 10 things young artists can learn from Coco Chanel Before Chanel No. 5, the most popular women s fragrance ever created, there was Coco Before Chanel. Now, director Anne Fontaine has just released her rags to riches movie, a piece of art in itself. With gorgeous cinematography, music and costume design, the Belgian production with french subtitles was adopted from the book by Edmond Charles Roux And while the film is rated PG 13 and is too mature for younger viewers, air max wright it offers excellent lessons for young, up and coming artists of any age. No. 1: Less is more. In the late 1800 s and early 1900 s, the Belle Epoch era, French women wore binding corsets and lots of feathers on their hats. Coco Chanel first made her mark by stripping hats and clothes of these uncomfortable and distracting frivolities. This was seen as a fashion faux pas at the time, but inevitably became tres chic. No. 2: Keep your eyes open. Coco was nike air max 2013 womens orphaned as a young girl. And perhaps it was this sense of abandonment that made her feel like an outsider throughout her twenties, at least. This, however, gave her room to view the world at a distance, taking in the fashion and mannerisms of the upper classes who would ultimately become her customer base. Making her the first woman and most famous fashion designer in the world. No. 3: Snip! Snip! Follow your instincts. Coco was truly an artist at heart, though in the movie, she did not necessarily realize it. In one or two scenes, we see Coco suddenly driven to cut bows off dresses or hats. Like a bird flying south for the winter, she didn t question her instinct to strip down a garment. She just did it. No. 4: Find support. The movie presents Coco as a loner. But one day, she hears someone playing a beautiful song on the piano. She follows her ears to meet Boy Capel, the man who would become her first creative muse. While there are some questionable ways Coco addressed her relationships with men, (again, the movie is rated PG 13) there s no doubt her friend guided her towards nike free shipping code great success. When no one else paid attention to Chanel s unique and independent style, Boy stressed to her to not lose her individuality. And that she was truly special. Who knows what women s fashions would be like today without the huge success and thus impact of Coco Chanel? No. 5: Enjoy all the arts. Coco started out as a chorus girl. She grew up in France and had an appreciation for architecture, music, drama and fashion. In one funny scene, when Coco arrives at her friend s mansion uninvited, he puts her in the flower room. There we see her clothed and hatted, taking in the beauty of a gorgeous deep bath tub as she sits in it. No. 6: Start somewhere. Before the days of the worldwide web and local festivals, how did artists find their niche? In Coco s case, her first customer was Emilienne d Alencon, a famous actress who Coco advised to simplify her hats and wardrobe. At first, the actress was taken aback, but eventually, Coco s determination swayed the actress and she asked Coco to make her a hat. Soon, Coco was designing hats for many of Emilienne s rich and famous friends. Of course, eventually, Coco went on to become the first woman to break into the male dominated world of fashion. But she started with one hat for one customer. No. 7: Being an an individual can be lonely. When you see the world through a different set of eyes, many people who are comfortable with normal conventions in life won t understand. You have to not second guess your own creative perceptions and realize that s what makes you an artist. No. 8: Experience life. Coco was a bit of a risk taker. She invited herself to live at a wealthy man s mansion. Maybe it wasn t very polite of her, but it was definitely a risk. She also rode his horses with no formal training and attended parties she was not invited to. When she saw the ocean for the first time, she was awestruck because she had the innate ability to appreciate the amazing power and beauty of mother nature. No. 9: Be a problem solver. When Coco s muse and lover married a wealthy woman instead of her, her heart was broken. Nonetheless, this man would go on to fund her first hat shop in Paris. Instead of ditching him over hurt pride, she took the advantage. When fame came shortly thereafter, she told him, "You could have married a celebrity instead of a rich woman in a stuffy old mansion." No. 10: Stay focused. It s at the point where Chanel opens her first shop, the movie skips womens nike free 3.0 ahead several years. We see models traipsing down the steps before Coco in what might be a fashion show rehearsal. Coco is older now with shorter hair. She s wearing her signature Coco Channel suit with a few ornamental strands of pearls surprisingly draped around her neck. Emotionless, without hint of a smile or raise of an eyebrow, she carefully analyzes each model in passing. We see flashbacks of Coco as a younger, less sophisticated woman unsure of what her future holds. She is now Coco Chanel, the empire, because she came to focus on her unique vision air max 97 and believe in herself.

10 best perfume commercials ever It s not easy to sell a smell. That why the best fragrance campaigns rely on selling a mood and often involve people everyone knows or wants to sleep with. Enter Brad Pitt: On Monday, Mr. Jolie will appear air max 1 sale in the next big fragrance campaign for Chanel No. 5, the first male spokesmodel in its 91 year career (and with compensation as handsome as he is: around $7 million). The commercial reportedly depicts Brad charming a lady who, it is revealed, isa bottle of Chanel No. 5. Will Brad ad linger in your mind as long as the memories and aromas of these top perfume ads of the past? Here s a list of the biggest, best and most indelible fragrance commercials. 10. Canoe(1981) The hunky guy, the sailboat, the flags, the side ponytail. This Canoe ad is basically saying that if you wear this cologne, you are signaling to women that you are ready for sex from miles away. could make a bottle of fragrance so compelling? 8. Coty Wild Musk(1983) The best thing about this commercial is that it owns its cheesiness. These two cavepeople look like freshmen at Cal State in 1988, and the set looks like it from that volcano number. The fragrance became less about sexuality and more about "having it all." Get a bottle to Anne Marie Slaughter stat! 6. L Air du Temps(1982) Sometimes it just takes a good song to sell a perfume. Amid all the flowery Victoriana, you are told "something s in the air." What is it? To find out, all you need to do is wear a white diaphanous dress, dab L Air du Temps on your neck, and you will be making out with a preppy guy in minutes. Only ashes." It s the unashamed pretentiousness that makes this ad work. The art house cinema quality, the stiff Ingmar Bergman esque actors, the bad poetry, all on a blank stage. It s like you are spraying the movie behind your ears. The Charlie woman looks fun, independent and gloriously nike free 3.0 women free of breast augmentation. Only the "Greatest Movie Star of All" could convince us that White Diamonds is a classic scent and that she hangs around salty seamen as a gambler s moll. This ad is the definitive example of modern advertising self awareness. Goode (who also created the unforgettable album covers and videos for Grace Jones) lets us all in on the joke, while still making this product seem worth buying. 1. Chanel No. air max 90 infrared 5 (1982) Obvious yet oblique; arty yet accessible, Chanel No. 5 campaign is pure marketing perfection. It all makes sense when you find out that these mini films were directed by Sir Ridley Scott. In one, the Inkspots song Don Want to Set the World on Fire plays in the background as a French garden morphs into a piano, then into train tracks and into a city skyline. Huh? A handsome man s face his name is Charles air max 2 enters the frame. A woman Catherine is walking toward him. He has a question for her, she an answer for him. We don t get to hear it, just more Inkspots lyrics my heart I have but one desire? Yet we don t need one, because the shadow of the plane gliding up the Transamerica Pyramid building, and in this next commercial, where it flies across a pool, speaks volumes: A sunbathing goddess lying poolside declares, "I am made of blue sky, and golden light, and I will feel this way forever." Does it make sense? No! But does it send the message that if you wear this perfume a totally wet man will appear between your legs? Yes! BONUS: Jean Nat(1984) It a body splash (whatever that is) but this commercial makes you want to douse yourself with Jean Nat and then go horseracing. It s the definitive ad of woman as power broker. Maybe the worst? "Learn to Be Lonely," "The Phantom of the Opera," 2004 "Chicago," "Les Misrables" and "Dreamgirls" all shoehorned in at least one new song among the Broadway standards, a gambit intended to pad out their nomination totals (none ended up winning the big prize). But there s something uniquely sad about the song from "Phantom," whether because the film didn t make much of an impact at the awards nike free run all black aside from its one new song, or because the opportunity to perform the song was taken away from the movie s cast and went to Beyonc, wearing a chandelier as a necklace.
