Oscar-winning actress Penélope Cruz has been chosen by Karl Lagerfeld to become the new CHANEL ambassador and be the face of the upcoming Cruise 2018/19 campaign.
The Spanish actress attended the French house’s Haute Couture Show in Paris and channeled her inner Parisian wearing a white beret and a pink tweed dress, paired with a pink bag and nude pumps.
“It’s such an iconic brand and Karl [Lagerfeld] is a genius, and I’ve been admiring everything he’s done since I was a little girl, so it’s such a pleasure working with him. He’s like the king of fashion and we had a really, really interesting photo shoot, so to be in front of his camera is an adventure.” [WWD]
The actress attended her first Chanel show in 1999 and since then she has worn designs by the brand on various occasions, including the Oscars and the Cannes Film Festival.
Penélope joined a very exclusive list of celebrities that were previously named Chanel ambassadors, including Margot Robbie, Keira Knightley and Lily-Rose Depp.
