When it comes to Chanel, the brand’s early 20th Century roots are never too far from mind. But while it’s thus not uncommon for a twenties inspiration to shine through, we can’t help but add Karolina Kurkova’s gently flapper-esque outfit to the growing list of signs a jazz-age revival is on the way. And, as I’ve mentioned recently several times, that revival is likely to be one that marries the historically thematic with the modern, not one of all-out costumery. Kurkova’s black lace Chanel dress and Maison Michel headband merge, ever so subtly, into exactly that sentiment. If you want to get onto the new flapper trend early, this is certainly one way to do it.
Kurkova was attending the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
