Check Out Alice Dellal's $3K Teddy Bear, AKA Chanel's New 'Boy' Bag
March 23, 2012
Chanel has a history of choosing rising (and sometimes quirky) celebrities to star in their ad campaigns: Lily Allen, Cat Power, and Georgia May Jagger have all shilled for the brand. But the house’s latest selection comes as somewhat of a surprise: Punky socialite and model Alice Dellal has been tapped to rep Chanel’s new Boy handbag collection.
Best known for her punk-influenced, alternative fashion sense and modeling career (she’s repped both Mango and Agent Provocateur), Dellal isn’t exactly an obvious choice for the venerable fashion house. Chanel seems to be embracing her signature personal style, however — the campaign has her lounging around an extravagant mansion in torn fishnets (no pants, natch) and some crazy-cool hairdos.
