Earlier this summer singer Lily Allen made her debut as Chanel’s newest face. She channeled Audrey Hepburn while Karl Lagerfeld shot her and Chanel’s amazing Coco Cocoon bags. Now, thanks to the Daily Mail, we get a sneak peek at Lily playing dress up for Uncle Karl again, this time going for a sexier look that features a mop of messy hair and a vamp red lip.
These images are more in line with the sweet and saucy Lily that we’ve all come to know and love via her two hit albums and countless paparazzi shots. That’s the Lily that Karl handpicked for this campaign despite the fact that she admits to being very aware that she is “5 ft 2 in and a size 12” and uncomfortable modeling. However, with her affinity for Chanel bags and her fiery personality it’s no wonder Lagerfeld, who describes her as fun, chose her.
With her new found status as muse, it seems as Karl’s influence has rubbed off since Lily is taking a spin in the designing chair herself. She has already done her own line of clothes for British label New Look and just recently launched a line of jewelry called Lily Allen of course.
Like most of you, I am eagerly awaiting the official release of Lily’s new Chanel Coco Cocoon ads. I have to see if she once again rose to the occasion and did Karl proud. I’m sure she did, because we all know Karl Lagerfeld would have it no other way.
