Have you watched Chanel’s latest fashion film starring Cara Delevigne as a cartoon? If not, then you’d better!
Karl Lagerfeld is going mad for technology this season and the ‘alienated’ S/S17 collection of Chanel proves just that. And to debut the brand new bag ‘Gabrielle’, the company used Cara Delevigne’s digital portrait for promotion. The animated film is created by Japanese director Shishi Yamazaki, who transformed the supermodel/actress into a young, Parisian cartoon skater who is looking for the Gabrielle bags.
In the short film, Delevigne is seen running, skating around, and grabbing the Gabrielle bag, -actually two Gabrielle bags we can say-. Once Cara gets them, she proves that she can be just as chic and casual even while she’s on the skateboard.
This is the second of the four-part video series, which are slated to be released by Chanel each week throughout April. The first film starred actress Kristen Stewart and was unveiled last week, while two more, will feature the model and brand’s longtime muse, Caroline de Maigret and the musician Pharrell Williams.
About the film, Delevigne says:
One of the most interesting shoots I’ve ever done[…]I’ve never done an animation before, and for one minute, it takes a month to do that. So the amount of work that goes into it is so much more after the shoot is done then now. I can’t believe I’m gonna be a cartoon, it’s the coolest thing ever!
And here’s a bonus if you would like to watch behind the scenes:
We all know that Cara Delevigne is insanely gorgeous and now, she proves she looks just as good in her digital version!
