Karl’s Crush


After WWD reported last week that Alice Dellal was rumored to be Karl Lagerfeld’s new gal, Chanel has confirmed that the drummer of Thrush Metal is indeed the new face of the Boy Chanel handbag collection. “The designer had a crush on this unique, charismatic young lady, who is both a model and musician, during a photo shoot several months ago,” Chanel said in a statement released today. “Alice Dellal represents the perfect incarnation of all that is unique about the Boy Chanel handbag collection, which strives far from conformist notions of femininity.” Watch out for the Lagerfeld-photographed ad campaign featuring Dellal, who follows in the footsteps of muses including Jerry Hall, Blake Lively, and Diane Kruger, in March 2012. Here’s a sneak peak (above).
