ANG/Fame

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is as known for his signature white ponytail as he is for his innovative designs for the famous French fashion house. Oscar-winning actresses like Nicole Kidman and Keira Knightley have starred in Chanel’s sensual perfume ads, but when it comes to his celebrity pals he counts Mary- Kate and Ashley Olsen and Rihanna as his front row regulars. And his taste for quirky fashionistas is finally about cross over into print ads. A rep for Chanel confirms to PEOPLE.com that Karl has cast none other than Lily Allen as the star of his next handbag campaign! What made him pick the British pop star? “She’s fun,” WWD quotes Lagerfeld as saying. We can’t wait to see what these two have in store for the Chanel ads. Tell us: Are you excited to see Lily Allen star in Chanel’s handbag ads?

JULES. TRY ASKING YOURSELF WHAT LILY ALLEN HAS DONE THIS YEAR, THAT MAKES YOU SO ANGRY ABOUT ALL THOSE STORIES THAT THE PRESS WROTE LAST YEAR, O.K. NOW LET THAT GO, LILY ALLEN”S DRUNKEN ANTICS CAN BE COUNTED ON ONE HAND FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR OF 2008. 1. THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2. THE GLAMOR AWARDS. 3. RONNIE SCOTT’S JAZZ CLUB 4. THE G.Q. AWARDS WITH ELTON JOHN. THE REST ARE EXAGGERATED TABLOID STORIES, AND EVEN STILL THAT TOOK PLACE LAST YEAR NOT NOW. LILY ALLEN HAS HANDLED ANY MAJOR ISSUE THAT THE PRESS HAS WITH HER. SHE’S NOT OUT DRINKING LATE AT NIGHT TO THE POINT OF FALLING DOWN, AND FRANKLY IF SHE DOES THAT’S HER BUSINESS. THAT’S WHY SHE MADE SURE THE PRESS WAS OFF HER BACK IN LONDON, SO THAT PEOPLE WOULD NOT HAVE THAT IMPRESSION OF HER. THEY CAN’T GO NEAR HER, WAIT FOR HER TO BEND OVER AND GET THE MONEY SHOT IT’S FINISHED.
