Paris, France (CNS) – Jerry Hall, ex-wife of Mick Jagger, has been chosen as the new face of Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld hand-picked the Texan beauty to star in Chanel’s new handbag campaign.
The veteran supermodel will be portraying images inspired by Colette’s Chéri, based on the novel of a young man involved in a relationship with a woman twice his age.
The man will be portrayed by model Baptiste Giabiconi. According to WWD, Giabiconi will appear “seeking her affections on a bed strewn with a quilt – and a quilted bag.”
Past models for Chanel have included Keira Knightley, Agyness Deyn, Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman and Audrey Tautou.
