Lily Allen pour Chanel

Not in a million years would I have thought Lily Allen would be the face of Chanel handbags until I saw the campaign, and in an odd way it works! Awww, she's so cute!

Speaking of Chanel handbags, I was lucky enough to see the making of the Chanel 2.55 a couple months back in Paris and it really is pretty impressive, hard to imagine what a mission it must have been to make one back in the day without all the modern machinery! I'll try and give a step by step guide with photos, let's try a little DIY, haha!

1. Prepare leather, fabric

2. Cut leather into pieces

3. Leather prepared

4. Compress leather

10. Gather different parts
