Chanel ad campaigns always stand out against others in the glossy pages of magazines, because, well, they’re Chanel. But this season I’m finding it hard to take my eyes away from the Carine Roitfeld styled Autumn/Winter 2011 ads, staring model and Lagerfeld-favourite, Freja Beha Erichsen. Especially the shot of Freja checking out her hot-pink brows in the mirror of her Chanel compact. As you do.
Bleached brows have been in fashion for a few seasons now, and coloured eyebrows made an appearance on the Balenciaga runway back in A/W 2010. But they have yet to hit the mainstream. Chanel has a way with setting beauty trends (they dictated what the It nail polish colour was for seasons on end), so if anyone can make pink eyebrows cool it’s Karl and co. But are we brave enough to follow?
Personally I love this look on the pages of magazines but I won’t be trying this look myself. I’m still getting my head around shocking pink lips so eyebrows are definitely a step too far. What do you think? Are you a fan of the look?
