Each day more and more images surface online of the Chanel ads styled by Carine Roitfeld featuring Freja Beha Erichsen and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.  Here are the latest shots – some are very racy.  I especially love the one of the Boy Bag – let the bag and the legs do the talking!

Purrrrrrrr…Freja Beha Meows for the Camera

chanel fall winter 2011 2012 ad campaignEarlier this month some images of the Fall-Winter 2011/12 ad campaign were leaked onto the net and Karl Lagerfeld claimed that they were stolen.  The big to-do about the images was because of the dream team that created them – styled by Carine Roitfeld, shot by Karl Lagerfeld and starring Karl’s muse Freja Beha.  The official images have just begun to surface online thanks to some scans from Northern Star on The Fashion Spot.

Chanel Ads Styled by Carine Roitfeld – Sneak Peek

Back in April I mentioned that former French Vogue EIC Carine Roitfeld would be styling the Chanel Fall-Winter 2010/11 ad campaign featuring Freja Beha Erichson.  Images from the campaign have begun to surface online and they definitely look a bit different from the ones that Karl art directs.   Instead of shooting outside, on white seamless or in 31 Rue Cambon, the ads show Freja in a photobooth, presumable taking photos of herself.  It’s kind of like a dream, within a dream I suppose.  Perhaps inspired by Inception?   I can’t wait to see these in the glossies in the next few weeks.  What do you think of them?

P.S. – I love the Chanel mask!  Freja looks like a Chanel superhero!

Last week the fashion community was atwitter on twitter. Why? Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel crew were spotted in the streets of the Lower East Side of New York shooting the Chanel Autumn/Winter 2010 Ready to Wear campaign.  The models on set included Karl’s girl of the moment Freja Beha Erichsen, as well as Abbey Lee Kershaw. It’s not everyday that you get to see Karl Lagerfeld on the streets of New York – I wish I was there to see it with my own eyes!
