Chanel reunites with Alice Dellal, Kristen Stewart and Vanessa Paradis

Mar 2, 2015

As announced in January, Karl Lagerfeld photographed the three prestigious spokesmodels for the latest Chanel handbags campaign, which spotlights Chanel's iconic 11.12 and Boy bags, as well as the brand new Girl bag.

Supermodel Alice Dellal, American actress Kristen Stewart and French actress Vanessa Paradis -- all of whom have already posed for Chanel in the past -- have returned to inspire Karl Lagerfeld's latest campaign for the luxury brand's handbags.

"Three women, three handbags" is how Chanel presents its latest campaign. In the first visuals revealed, the famous brand ambassadors pose separately, each with one of the label's bags.

Vanessa Paradis for the Girl Chanel

Among Chanel's signature spokesmodels, French actress Vanessa Paradis first posed for the label in 1991 as the face of the Coco fragrance. Nearly a quarter of a century later, the partnership is still going strong. 

In light of this lasting relationship, one might have thought the French actress would represent the 11.12, Chanel's timeless bag with the famous double C clasp. Instead, Vanessa Paradis is the face of the brand's latest bag, the Girl Chanel.

For Karl Lagerfeld, the actress and singer poses naked, wearing only a pearl necklace and the new Girl Chanel handbag in lambskin leather with a leather braid.

Meanwhile, Chanel's two iconic handbags are represented by two of its newest ambassadors, Alice Dellal and Kristen Stewart, hired in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

The British supermodel has always been the face of the Boy bag, which is particularly suited to her androgynous style. In this latest campaign, she stays true to this style, wearing only a loose-fitting leather shirt and a denim patchwork version of the Boy handbag.

Finally, Kristen Stewart is the face of one of the French label's enduring classics, the quilted 11.12 handbag. In the black and white photograph, the young woman wears a silk crepe suit and the famous bag in chevron quilted lambskin. 

"For me the iconic handbag is just like the House of Chanel, fundamental and modern, two qualities not usually shared," said Stewart, who is best known to movie fans as the star of the "Twilight" franchise.
