Chanel’s last big ad was directed by Baz Luhrmann and followed Gisele Bündchen around as she surfed, smooched hot men and looked absolutely gorgeous. So how do you top that? The brand’s Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld (who is never afraid of a celebrity collaboration) managed to up the movie-making ante yet again.
Next week, Chanel will debut a new film directed by Lagerfeld starring Cara Delevingne and Pharrell Williams as the Emperor and Empress of Austria (read: high wigs, dramatic ball skirts and opulent set decorating, you know, the Chanel norm). It also features an original song written by Pharrell and performed as a duet between the stars (yes, the supermodel sings). Here’s what we know so far.
