Hey, if Selma Blair can do eye glasses, then lindsay Lohan can do the clothes. I may eat these words when the campaign comes out though.
They may both be celebs, but there's a world of difference between Selma and Lindsay ...

Karl is also an admirer of Nicole Richie ... would that have been better or worse?

Okay,I think I lost all remaining respect I had for Kaiser Karl. What rubbish that is! What's next,Hilary Duff for Rochas? Paris Hilton for Lanvin? Karl will truly ruin Chanel's legacy by using some pop culture has been like her. He couldn't get the talented and wonderful Tilda Swinton to represent Chanel,whom btw,I really feel is the perfect Chanel girl. All I can say is,Mlle Coco is rolling in her grave a million times over on this one. Boo Karl...very bad mistake!

Also,I think that's a really horrible marketing mistake as well. Are there really Chanel customers(which,I'm sure most are beyond their late 20's)that will relate to such a personality? Much of her fan-base can't even afford Chanel....she should be doing Gap or Abercrombie not Chanel.

Perhaps those collars have cut off the circulation to his brain ... that's the same dark hair as in the Bazaar photo btw ...

Judging from his 'hands' it has to do something with robots. Or what ta-ta said

Also note how he's wearing lipstick. Not a nice contrast avec le hair. No wonder he's sucking the lips in, le monsieur realized it.

Does anyone remember Inspector Gadget? 'The Claw'.

I'm not being nice

It's people like her (Nicole Richie, etc.) that people here (teens, I presume by their typing) are all OMG over. I'm effing sick of them.

Chanel is going to hell as far as I'm concerned. The fashion hell.

Yes, I agree with you. I don't know to say it, but in a way Selma seems more, I don't know, "indie" and actually has personal style. Lindsay is just like the average teen starlet, doing certain things because they are trendy and not because she's actually into them. But's that just my opinion .

I'd also like to bring up Selma's appearances with Lou Doillion (sp?) and Evan Rachael Wood in the Miu Miu ads. I actually kind of like those ads. Miu Miu represents a totally difference additude than Chanel - - an additude I think those girls fit perfectly.

On the otherhand, when I picture Chanel, I picture high-fashion French aristocrats, Lindsay Lohan does not project an aristocratic image at all. She's constantly partying at the trendiest places, wearing the trendiest clothes and she's always in the tabloids. Why not have one of their couture models do an ad for them? Freja, Kim, Emina or Ann-Catherine- - they're all 1000 times better than Lindsay. I think Lindsay would be much better suited to appear in an ad for Wet Seal or something that all of her fans shop at. I have never heard of anyone my age wearing Chanel...




Oh lord, what's next??? Nicole Richie for Cavalli????


Oh wait, she's already doing those god-awful Bongo ads... maybe next season....
