Chanel Tribute: Decor

Coco Chanel famously said: “Fashion changes, but style endures” – a statement which rings true of all of her own work, as well as the brand’s latest collections. Stardoll is proud to pay homage to this icon with the latest collection to hit Starplaza: Chanel Tribute Decor

We adore the clean lines and minimalism combined with gold and opulent luxury – a trademark of Chanel – and here are some of our absolute favorites.

Along with the new collection, a perfectly suited background has also been released – Rue Lambon 31 (named after the address of the very first Chanel shop). And of course our model had to put on her favorite little black dress for the shopping occasion!

Get the Look: Pixie Lott

British singer-songwriter Pixie may only be 23 years old, but has already accomplished so much! Apart from her musical success, she has become a style icon for girls all over the world. We love her rock ‘n roll sense of fashion, and that she dares to be different and to have fun with her style. Here’s an outfit inspired by Pixie’s rocking style:

Pixie’s style is all about attitude, quirky details and having fun while staying fashionable and comfortable. For her makeup, she can often be seen with bright red lips and rocking a smoky eye. We used: Dot Midnight black shade stick 9SD / Transform Venice red lipstick 19SD / Dot midnight black eyeshadow 6SD

Pixie can rock a hat like few others can! This black fedora from Killah is perfect for her look! The fringe bag from Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren is the perfect boho chic accessory, and the quirky tee from Miss Sixty has a great print. To reflect Pixie’s eclectic and unique style, layer accessories and don’t be afraid to think outside the box! This great scarf is for example from the men’s section.

Featured stardoll: Moohannad

Visiting Moohannad’s Suite is as much fun as it is surprising and inspiring. This beautiful ice fairy has everything from magical forests to snowy ski slopes, and with plenty of amazing fashion in between. Her Chanel-inspired looks on display work beautifully with the minimalist décor in black and white, and we love her use of accessories.

When Moohannad isn’t busy hunting down the latest in high end fashion, she can relax in her alpine chalet with a stimulating game of chess and a glass of sparkling lemonade.

This Yacht-inspired bedroom has plenty of vintage charm and such lovely colors. We’d love to relax in that bed after a day at sea!

And finally, what better pet could this wintry fairy have than a magical pink unicorn?

Congratulations to Moohannad for having such an amazing Suite, and we hope that you are feeling inspired! Make sure to visit Stardoll now to check out this, and many more, wonderful and unique Suites.
