Rinko Kikuchi does Chanel
The Oscar nominated actress Rinko Kikuchi is the latest actress to become the face of Chanel following the steps of Keira Knightley, Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Paradis and Diane Kruger. The actress, best known for her role in Babel, was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Chanel’s cruise 2007/08 handbags collection. Lagerfeld said about Rinko that “she has real power in her gaze, and an enormous potential to be a great actress. She can look at you with childlike naivety, then suddenly become a mysterious woman”. The campaign which was shot in Paris last June, features Rinko posing in a shop window and clasping various bags by her side. These include an extravagant model in white alligator and diamonds, of which only 13 were made. The adverts will appear in fashion and style magazines starting the month of November.
