Chanel as You've Never Seen It!

miss dirty martiniimages via and V Magazine

Karl Lagerfeld is notorious for his unkind remarks toward curvy women, and in direct response to his widely criticized attitude, he and V Magazine teamed up to create this photo shoot. We have to admit that it is eye-catching and a lot of fun!
The model, Miss Dirty Martini, poses with a Coco Chanel look-alike in the famed 31 rue Cambon atelier.
The lingerie-themed shoot includes pieces personally owned by Miss Martini (such as that fabulous fringe bra) and items by Chantal Thomass, Rigby & Peller, Dolce & Gabbana and Comme des Garçons. Of course all of the accessories are Chanel, including the new Chanel temporary tattoos and brooches which were used as pasties! Ahh, Chanel pasties...who would have thought!
All images were shot by Karl Lagerfeld, and you can see more from V Magazine's size issue here.

LOL...Well, I am loving this! How refreshing to see a gorgeous woman with real curves in an ad for Chanel. Bravo to Mr. L!!

Wow! I am unfamiliar with both Mr. Lagerfeld's attitude towards the full figured woman and Miss Dirty Martini, regardless, these are remarkable. I hope this is indicative of both Mr. Lagerfeld and the industry opening their minds and broadening their lines (pardon the pun) to include us full figure gals. Thanks so much for posting this!

Holy smokes! Love this---especially if it means Lagerfeld is changing his tune towards curvaceous women. I wonder what Coco would think...?

Yay for Dirty Martini!
It's good to see "one of our own" in such an incredible fashion spread... yeah, alongside Lagerfield, of all people!
She is a wonderful, eccentric burlesque performer!

Great to see a curvy Lady instead of the stick thin, so often seen.
I am glad that Lagerfeld is at least trying to make amends for the nasty remarks he made.
Now I wonder what CC would think of this?

Happy week

These are really great. And she looks beautiful. Chanel looks good on every body! Wish he'd come out with some maternity outfits!
