Everyone knows what a privilege it is to be chosen as ambassador for a renowned fashion house like Chanel. As well as the honour to be hand-picked by Karl Lagerfeld himself. He has chosen French actress and film director, Maïwenn as the new face of Chanel’s eyewear for the Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection. This will not be the first time that Lagerfeld and Maïwenn have worked together. The two first met on the shoot of “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s classic revisited by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld”.

Mr Lagerfeld said that he was seduced by Maïwenn’s natural beauty and charisma. This young lady will be following in the footsteps of  Chanel girls like Blake Lively and Vanessa Paradis.

What do you think of Mr Lagerfeld’s newest muse?
