Okay, as soon as I saw the title of this thread my jaw literally dropped and I cried "WHAAAAAAAAAATTTTTT!?"

From Kate to Lindsay? What fresh hell? So much for her appealing to the younger generation, I'm 16 and this makes me want to barf. Lilo is trailer trash. No. Just no. This can't be happening.

Well, the collection sucked, so it's kind of fitting no?

I get that Chanel is probably trying to break into a new market and all, but i think that it will totally alienate and dissapoint Chanel's original supporters.
By the way, kudos for suggesting Tilda Swinton, she would be divine.
Also Audrey Tatou would be lovely as a Chanel girl as well.

I don't think Lindsay is your average Chanel girl... ...Kate Moss was and would be much better!

Maybe Chanel will start making hotpants and bellyshirts-- then she'd be perfect!

That's precisely what I was saying aquamis. This will be a very bad marketing ploy of Karl. Doesn't he realise nobody of that age really buys Chanel...well maybe if they're rich it's just the bags and logo-crazy accessories....but to put her in an all-out ad campaign is ridiculous. I always thought Karl was alot smarter than that but apparently not.

It's really strange too. 10,15 years ago these types of girls would be doing Gap or something more mass appealing and relatable to their true fan-base. I suppose it says something about the culture we live in today. We're obsessed with these hyped,dreadful actresses and nobody personalities whom have no genuine significance in film or in anything but to make profit out of nothing. But perhaps,this is Karl's ironic point??

Presumably he's using Selma & Lindsay to go after that market segment for Chanel ... they apparently have the money, why should they be spending it somewhere else? And now that Chanel has its cosmetics available online, perhaps he's hoping this age group will be good online customers. With Lindsay he's appealing to anyone who came from the wrong side of the tracks but now has some $$$$ ... perhaps also a somewhat untapped market for Chanel??
