The 52-year-old star has been cast as the face of the brand’s pre-fall 2013 campaign — and you can get a sneak peek right here!
Actress Tilda Swinton is the latest star to model for Karl Lagerfeld! The star has been tapped to front the Pre-Fall 2013 campaign for the Métiers d’Art Paris-Edimbourg collection. “Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Edimbourg collection. She is of course Scottish, but more than that she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance,” Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel, said.
The Scottish actress is a perfect fit for the new campaign, considering that the collection, (which showed in Edinburgh, Scotland), consisted of a slew of knits, kilts, plaid, tweed and argyle. Karl himself captured the actress for the Pre-Fall 2013 campaign.
Tila was actually born in London and attended Cambridge University, but her family is Scottish. The star is known for her fashion-forward choices on the red carpet and she isn’t afraid to make a bold fashion statement. At 5’11, there’s no denying the fact that the 52-year-old has model-like proportions!
The news comes just days after David Bowie‘s new video for The Stars (Are Out Tonight) was released, in which Tilda plays the lead female role against the 66-year-old rockstar. It looks like she’s everywhere these days!
Although the ads won’t officially debut until June, you can get a behind-the-scenes, sneak peek of the campaign right here. What do you think? Do you think Tilda is a good fit for Chanel? Check it out and let us know!
