Meet the new face of Chanel: Selma Blair. The 33-year-old actress will be photographed by Chanel?s chief designer, Karl Lagerfeld, for a series of print ads for the label?s sunglass collection, according to ananova.com
Blair is already a fan of the couture designer, and she may have been a natural choice. In January 2004, she married Ahmet Zappa, the son of Frank Zappa. Lagerfeld designed her wedding dress.
Blair said that she feels comfortable being photographed by Lagerfeld. ?With Karl, he’s capturing something that’s more – my personal flaws, the way I am as a girl, not a model,” she said, according to ananova.
Blair is known for her movie roles in Legally Blond, Cruel Intentions and The Sweetest Thing. Her newest project is Purple Violets, also starring Ed Burns and Debra Messing.
The couture ads starring the brunette will be displayed next year.
