Cara Delevingne: Chanel's Reincarnation

Is there anything fashion "It Girl" Cara Delevingne  can't do? Earlier this year, she set the internet ablaze after confirming her being cast in 2015's teen blockbuster drama Paper Towns (based on the book written by John Green who brought us this year's tearjerker The Fault in Our Stars), and she also dabbled in a little bit of singing with rap dou Die Antwoord in their new single Ugly Boy. Next up for Cara is the soon to be released editorial short film for Chanel, in which she costars with Pharrell Williams (who also composed the soundtrack.


The film, written and directed by Karl Lagerfeld himself,  follows a young Coco Chanel on a trip to Austria in the 50s, on which she meets the inspiration behind the iconic Chanel tweed jacket. Williams and Delevingne portray Austrian royalty Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth. The movie is one part Cinderella, one part Anastasia, and all parts as magical and intricate as the Chanel runway shows of late. It seems like Lagerfeld is really tapping into his sense of theatrics with his latest projects, spinning a new era to the iconic fashion house that takes a much pride in presentation as it does with the clothing they make. We'll have to wait until mid-Decemeber to see the full film but the teaser was just realeased on Chanel's website to hold you over until then, featuring a preview of a Cara and Pharrell duet.
