Selma Blair new face of Chanel
Whether you find her pretty, interesting or absolutely none of the above, it cannot be refuted that skinny actress Selma Blair wears her Chanel well. Karl Lagerfeld, who has dressed her repeatedly, including for her wedding, has now photographed her for the new Chanel Vision ads.
“I have a lovely relationship with Karl,” Blair told WWD. “It's different to be shot by him. I'm so comfortable in front of him. Sometimes when I work with other photographers they say, ‘Give me more Selma, more, more.' But they don't really know who I am. With Karl, he's capturing something that's more – my personal flaws, the way I am as a girl, not a model.” Leave it to Karl to excel once again.
