Karl Lagerfeld does not shy away from quirky ladies to front his Chanel bag campaigns: Lily Allen was a recent face, as was the more model-esque Blake Lively. But Karl definitely has punk proclivities, as evidenced by his new harder-edged, lower-priced Karl line; perhaps his immersion in that recent project explains his rumored choice for Chanel’s next bag lady.
Alice Dellal will supposedly front the label’s next campaign, WWD is reporting. Dellal is known for wearing lots of eyeliner and having half of her head shaved, and for being an It-girl-cum-model. She’s also the drummer for Thrush Metal, and is the sister of shoe designer Charlotte Dellal. All of those qualities seem like enough to qualify her for a Chanel campaign.
Alice hasn’t been seen as much lately as she was in the early and mid aughties, when she was hailed as the next big thing, landing some campaigns (like Agent Provocateur) and walking high profile catwalks (Vivienne Westwood). But if this rumor is true, then we may be seeing a lot more of her.
