CHANEL Hearts LA with “I Love Coco” Backstage Beauty Lounge at Bar Marmont!

CHANEL Hearts LA with “I Love Coco” Backstage Beauty Lounge at Bar Marmont!

It was about this time last year that Louis Vuitton brought its Series 2 exhibit to Los Angeles (read our review of that here), and just a couple weeks ago Saint Laurent held its Fall 2016 fashion show at the Palladium in Hollywood. And now, during Oscars weekend, Chanel too has come to LA, setting up its “I Love Coco” slash “Coco Loves LA” Backstage Beauty Lounge at Bar Marmont on Sunset Blvd.

For the last 4 days, Chanel did not hold back, taking up the entire venue and bringing us manicures, lip treatments, photo booth, temporary tattoos, free valet, and “mocktails”, with a setting so elaborate that every inch of the place was totally Instragram-able. There was even opportunity to get your manicure photographed like a Chanel ad, which was instantly emailed to you. Also, they won us over with the FREEBIES, event posters and button pins free for the taking. It was like being in Wonderland but Chanel. It was the best 2 hours we’d spent in a long time.

We really hope this encourages other big design houses to come to our town and hold similar parties. Do you hear us, Dior? Hermes? Coach? Celine?

The hour wait for manicures wasn't bad - thanks to those mocktails and all the Instagramming.
