Vanessa Paradis to Appear in Chanel Handbag Ads

Vanessa Paradis to appear in Chanel handbag ads. Also, Lagerfeld was just notified that he is to be decorated as a commander of the French Legion of Honor.

Vanessa Paradis, currently appearing in advertising for Chanel’s Rouge Coco lipstick, is extending her ties to the French fashion and beauty firm.

Karl Lagerfeld tapped the actress and singer for a spring campaign for Chanel’s Coco Cocoon range of handbags. The images, lensed by the designer, are slated to break in June magazines.

Paradis has a long history with Chanel, and first appeared in a 1994 television spot for the brand’s Coco fragrance, depicting her in a giant birdcage. The Coco Cocoon line, characterized by puffy quilting in a range of materials, was introduced last year. Lagerfeld will photograph Paradis again soon for Figaro Madame magazine. The indefatigable designer is the guest designer of a forthcoming summer issue.

And that’s not all: Lagerfeld was just notified by French President Nicolas Sarkozy that he is to be decorated as a commander of the French Legion of Honor. The date for the awards ceremony has yet to be fixed.
