You know that friend or co-worker everyone has who loves latching on to interesting characters just so they can up their street cred? It don’t matter if they’re young or old, dumb or smart; they just gotta have money, looks, fame or quirk.
Sure, Karl Lagerfeld is talented but given his habit of sidling up to random media darlings to further the Chanel brand we can’t help but wonder: is he a kiss arse?
Earlier this week, 15-year-old Willow Smith rocked up to the Chanel AW16 show at PFW with her ma Jada Pinkett Smith wearing a space themed catsuit and sporting blue flicked eyeliner.
The Whip My Hair singer is the newest in a long line of Chanel ambassadors and even though Karl’s interest in this particular celebrity offspring began in 2014 when he photographed her for V magazine, we struggle to see the similarities between all the other Chanel muses he’s uh, nurtured.
Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid may very well be the It Girls of the decade, Cara Delevingne was pretty much pounced on by every fashion house on the planet, Lily Rose-Depp is Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’ kid and Kristen Stewart was in Twilight, which Karl probably really, really likes.
Personally, the most surprising of Karl’s Chanel muses to date is Lily Allen whom he put in that “Cocoon bag" campaign back in 2009 'cause he thinks she looks like Gabrielle Chanel.
Any thoughts on who'll be the next Chanel muse under Karl's leadership? Comment below to let us know!
