"Lagerfeld, 80, has always praised the model, who first worked with his brand in 2012."
Los Angeles, July 12 - Model Cara Delevingne is now the face of luxury fashion brand Chanel.
She shared a snapshot from a new campaign of the brand via Instagram Thursday. She is seen posing up against a mirror with a pastel pink coat hooked across her shoulders.
New @chanelofficial campaign! Thank you @karllagerfeld, Delvevingne captioned the photograph, reports contactmusic.com.
The 21-year-old has earlier worked with Chanel as she closed its Haute Couture show and the Autumn/Winter 14 show earlier this year. But this is the first time she has fronted a mainline Chanel collection.
Lagerfeld, 80, has always praised the model, who first worked with his brand in 2012.
He recently described Delevingne as the modern It Girl, saying: Cara is different. She's full of life, full of pep. I like girls to be wild but at the same time beautifully brought up and very funny.
