chan for chanel

Rocker femme Chan Marshall (better known as Cat Power) has apparently been chosen by Karl Lagerfeld to front the new Chanel jewelry collection. According to her: "I was outside [a hotel] waiting, sitting on a pile of Louis Vuitton luggage, drinking water, with an apple and a cigarette in my hand, my cell phone, oh, and two guitars, and out comes Karl. He walks up, looks at me and says, 'Only a woman can look glamorous when smoking.' And I lowered my glasses and pointed to the shadows under my eyes and said, 'With these?'"

I think it may have been the bangs, not the cigs. Karl is still in his Irina phase.

Suprising choice made by Lagerfeld. I do love Cat Power though.

Haha... Irina's bangs have taken over fashion.

Having met Cat Power once, and having heard what messes her shows are, I'll be surprised if she manages to show up for her photo shoots much less continue to look as Karl wants her to.

I love her! And yeah I agree about only women looking glamorous with a cigarette. I am working on my sultry señorita with a lucky strike look but I haven't yet perfected it.

Irina is still a god. Karl just wants to switch muses to make himself look detached.

This news saddens me. The world needn't get any smaller.

I find Chan totally sexy: the hair, the voice, the tawny skin. I'm looking forward to the ads. She's apparently sober now so, I'm sure she'll be fine to work with.

i love that karl enjoys women with personality who have a past, and most of all talent for doing more than just being a living clothes hanger.
