    We may only be embarking on a Jade-filled fall, but Chanel revealed the newest polish shade at yesterday's Ready-to-Wear show- a purple-toned taupe (taupe, even?) that oozes understated cool.

    Leave it to Chanel beauty to blend the perfect mix of feminine chic and vaguely militaristic drab, on a nail color, no less. The neutral seems to fit in with Lagerfeld's lauded take on down-home dazzle. We now have the next six months to try and come up with a name for this color.
    It's funny, we sat behind a row of totally charming and sartorially prescient giggling teenagers at a show last month in NYC, all of whom were sporting this hot little color. We should have known.
