Chanel has released the trailer for the short film Reincarnation directed by Karl Lagerfeld, which is set to accompany the luxury brand’s Métiers d’Art collection in Salzburg next week. In it, Pharrell Williams and supermodel Cara Delevingne gavotte around a ballroom floor to an original Williams track — featuring Delevingne on vocals. The film tells the history of the iconic Chanel tweed jacket, as reimagined by creative director Karl Lagerfeld. Not sure how that relates to Pharrell and Cara in Cinderella drag, but I’m sure it will all make sense in the end. Or not. Fashion, you know.
From the Daily Mail:
Supermodel Cara, who has long been affiliated with the French fashion house, has previously expressed a desire to become a singer, and this will mark her big vocal debut. The 22-year-old looks beautiful in the teaser clip, which follows the history of the creation of Chanel’s iconic jacket. Wearing a full white Russian ballgown with her hair styled in a regal plaited ‘do, covered with floral decorations, the model wows as she is spun across the dance floor by her on-screen beau. And, as ever, her famous eyebrows take centre stage, appearing to be more defined than ever along with her classic make-up. She gazes lovingly into Pharrell’s eyes as they spin around the floor together in the sumptuous setting.
