One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world is Paris, better known to many as ‘The City of Lights.’  

The Paris Hotel de Ville has not been a hotel as its name suggest since the Renaissance-style hotel was destroyed in 1871.  The building is now the seat of the city government that is as massive as it is impressive. It is adorned with art and sculptures and allows visitors inside during special exhibits.

It is now hosting a celebration of the haute couture with a special exhibition entitled “Paris Haute Couture". The exhibition, running from March 2nd all the way to 6th of July, allows visitors to enjoy looking at some of the most beautiful and striking examples of haute couture apparel. The exhibit is sponsored by Swarovski, and it is open to anyone to drop in  viewing and with no admission charge..

It is appropriate that Paris is hosting this retrospective as the style originated in the city, in the middle of the 19th century. By paying tribute to haute couture, Paris is essentially honoring the art that is worn.  Famous haute couture designers include Nina Ricci, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Yves Saint Laurent,  among many other well known names with their vintage stunning designs on display at the exhibition. The opening in March coincides with the Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 runway collections.

The authentic Chanel Cosmetic Vanity Case can be used as a stylish makeup case that all diva’s of Paris have used it for. However, it is versatile enough to discover other uses for it such as storing jewelry too. Think about how great it will look upon a vanity table.

The vanity cosmetic bag is crafted in scrumptious black lambskin leather. The exterior is square in shape but is elongated vertically to assure plenty of space to hold a bottle of perfume or lotion. The front exterior contains the infamous CC logo embossed on it. 

There is a top handle to move the bag about. A thick exposed zipper is near the top of the pre-owned Chanel cosmetic case and covers nearly the entire circumference. The circular charm pull is leather and is enhanced with a CC logo in gold tone on its center.

The interior of this used case will easily store all beauty products and allow easy access to them whenever needed. It will organize makeup bottles, perfumes and toiletries nicely with an elastic pocket on one wall. There is plenty of room is left over in the Chanel Cosmetic Case to keep items  such as a jewelry pouch within them safe and sound.

An authentic Chanel Cosmetic Vanity Case is pure couture, as Coco Chanel kept one for herself.
