Karl Lagerfeld wrote and directed another Chanel short film, this time being shown Monday to guests to preview Chanel’s Cruise 2011 show today. Magdalena emulates Brigitte Bardot, which makes me feel that the part was originally supposed to be for Lara Stone. Abby Lee, looking adorable, channels Jane Birkin, while Freja emulates Mick Jagger. It focuses on the 70s-throwback party that I suppose the Cruise collection will reflect. I guess I’ll see as I review the line in just a moment. Also, is it me or do I find Baptiste a lot sexier on film than in photos. He still has that air about him that he knows he’s prettier than a unicorn, but maybe I’m just a cray-cray lunatic.

Lagerfeld is sticking with his muse Baptiste and using Freja as well. Nothing too outstanding about this. I prefer Prada’s eyewear with Wixson, but that’s obviously not Chanel’s aesthetic. Baptiste is so boring and I like Freja, but nothing excites me here. Step up your game, Lagerfeld.
I may like this more upon second glance.
i-D’s next issue will have three covers to choose from. The spring-theme has Sasha P., Freja and Natalia V. gracing the three covers. Sasha is drenched with the water-imitating dress while Freja and Natalia’s are predictable. Freja has a bit of attitude while Natalia is just naturally pretty like she always is. Both of them generally play up to that all of the time.
Freja Beha Erichson has been on an endless rampage of runway models this season. I’m not completely in love with her yet, but I love what Steven Meisel shot for Vogue Italia March 2010. In the editorial, Freja is paired with Matthias Vriens-McGrath. Together the two accomplished a beautful set of photographs. I adore Freja’s feminine image here and Matthias resembles Rudolph Valentino. Perfezione.
