Well I worship Floria Sigismondi; she's so fabulous with videos, consistently, not to mention other visual artistic work, like her exhibit years back - Come Part Mental. (And I liked what she did with the Runaways too)

And then throw Swinton and Bowie into the mix. It's Style & Coolness overload!

Tilda Swinton is Chanel's latest muse

Actress Tilda Swinton has been chosen by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld to front the campaign for the brand's latest Métiers d'Art collection, Paris-Edimbourg.

The 52-year-old actress has been chosen as the face of the French fashion house's pre-fall Paris-Edimbourg collection, which was showcased at Linlithgow Palace last December.

"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," declared Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel.

Though Swinton was born and bred in England, her father was a member of the Scots Guards and later Lord Lieutenant of Berwickshire, her paternal great-grandfather was Scottish politician, and her maternal great-great-grandfather was Scottish botanist John Hutton Balfour. She now resides in Nairn, overlooking the Moray Firth in the Highland region of Scotland with her twin sons and artist partner Sandro Kopp and has often spoken of her love for the country.

The Cambridge-educated actress won an Oscar in 2007 for her role in Michael Clayton , and is known for her alternative personal style.

The campaign, which was shot by Lagerfeld at the Château d'Ecouen, a Renaissance-period castle located near Chantilly, France, will appear in fashion publications from June.

After watching that music video it just makes so much sense that David Bowie and Tilda would collaborate, they are like a perfect match. Tilda looks amazing in the video, the whole thing is wonderful, but of course I especially love the clothes she wore (especially the number that she wears in the grocery store). And it's an interesting commentary on the notion of celebrity, leave it to Bowie to make you think!

Tilda fronting a campaign for Chanel sounds like the most innovative thing the house has done in seasons! Even though I wasn't crazy about that collection I'm looking forward to seeing the ads.

Tilda is so much cooler than Chanel's clothes at the moment, I'm sure it will turn out fine, but I'm not excited about the pairing.

^i have to agree with you there heatheranne....tilda just doesn't strike me as this current incarnate of a chanel face. she's so much cooler and has worn cooler stuff in recent months. to tell you the truth i could see her more as a dior girl than chanel simply because she fits raf simons' aesthetic more.

She was at the Acne show in Paris and I saw her and her boyfriend. What a stunning woman, I was amazed!

I'd agree completely if this was for another collection, but i think she's just PERFECT for the pre-fall with all the scottish (costumey) gowns. to me she looks amazing already in that on-set photo. i can't wait to see the full result

I'm the only one who thinks she doesn't suit Chanel?
I don't see anything in common between her style and the actual Chanel.
