Jerry Hall on her Chanel campaign

19 December 2008


The fashion world might be eagerly anticipating Jerry Hall's first Chanel campaign but the leading lady herself is somewhat self-deprecating. ‘Well, actually, I am the old face,' the 52-year-old model said last night of the S/S '09 handbag campaign. Inspired by Collette's book Cheri the images will be based around the novel's tale of a young man and his relationship with a woman twice his age. ‘I could relate to it.' And what did Jerry make of being personally chosen by Karl Lagerfeld for the campaign? ‘It was very flattering. He is so wonderful. It was the best experience I had with a photographer for many years. I actually enjoyed myself. Well, I am past my prime so it was a treat.' Now now Jerry. As much as we would like to sympathise, we don't think that you really deserve it! You may be in your fifties, but you are no less the supermodel you were in your Studio 54 days. And the Kaiser clearly agrees. [Telegraph]
