WWD heard a rumor that model, style icon, and Thrush Metal drummer Alice Dellal may be replacing Blake Lively as the face of Chanel handbags.
Dellal's hard-eged, rockerly thing and half-shaved head might make it seem like Karl Lagerfeld is switching gears after spending the past year fawning over the bubbly, ultra-girly Gossip Girl actress, but there's really no mystery here: the Kaiser just likes attractive peripherally-famous young women with a sense of style.
Chanel employees were famously displeased with Lagerfeld's last choice of muse, murmuring amongst themselves that Lively was "low-rent." If current rumors turn out to be true, I'm less excited to see Dellal's ad campaign than to find out whether she'll be embraced by Chanel staffers.
