Chanel Les Trompe L'Oeil temporary tattoos

Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, created 55 hand-drawn temporary tattoos for Chanel's last show in September in Paris.  Focusing on the signature Chanel chains, double-C logo pendants and pearls, these delicate designs are typically monochrome and add an edge to any outfit (SJP wore the chain bracelet with her Chanel Couture at Sunday's Oscars).

I really like the chain designs and in particular the garter for the thigh.  I love bird designs but I'm not sure on the bizarre décolleté necklace and Oriental cherry blossom leg designs, although most of them are very cool.  I was particularly taken with fake tattoos as a child (particularly glittery pink Mizz covermounts) so I'm thrilled that my favourite design house has reinvented them as as a sophisticated, stylish alternative to jewellery and body art.  Top of the lust list.  Originally stocked in boutiques, concessions and the Chanel Selfridges counter; obviously sold out but all over eBay

Only Chanel can make tattoos look so elegant and nostalgic.

That décolleté girl looks like a 90s skank.

Yes, like carny folk.
