It seems a distinctive hairstyle can go a long way. Just a month after being signed as the face of Chanel’s new Boy Handbag collection, punk model Alice Dellal is in another campaign… for non other than Mr Marc Jacobs.
Photos have just emerged of Alice fronting the Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. The Juergen Teller shots are actually some of our favourite of the aristo model – whose mum is Brazilian model Andrea. Her half-shaved hair style sets off the pretty Marc by Marc Jacobs dresses and pumps in a totally modern grunge way that we can totally see the Marc customer relating to. Alice takes over from Elle Fanning, the 13 year old actress, who last fronted the campaign.
So what is it about Alice? There’s no doubt she’s got fashion blood in the family. Aside from her model mum her sister Charlotte designs the fash pack’s favourite shoes under the name Charlotte Olympia and Alice’s godfather is Mario Testino.
But we reckon it’s her total dedication to her own look – and refusal to be carried away by the latest trend – that makes her a fashion original. She’s practically never spotted wearing anything other than Dr Martens and her signature beauty look is a hell of a lot of black khol. And aside from her trademark punk-rock uniform, the petite 24-year-old is a drummer in the band Thrush Metal and can often be found larking about the streets of London with Pixie Geldof. Something tells us she might have to put that music career on hold…
