Your first look at Cara Delevingne’s new Chanel campaign

Exclusive: the model slash actress is unveiled as the face of the brand’s SS16 eyewear collection

Though Cara Delevingne is increasingly turning her attention to acting (this year, she’s starring in six more titles, including Zoolander 2 and Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie) she’s still modelling. Case in point: her new advertising campaign for Chanel.

Unveiled today, the campaign features the actress-slash-model wearing the brand’s SS16 eyewear collection – photographed, as they always are, by the inimitable Karl Lagerfeld. Comprising of six images, the star wears a variety of models with the Chanel’s signature tweed and some baseball caps (which reflect her own slightly tomboyish style).

It’s not the first time Delevingne has modelled for Chanel – she’s starred in the house’s Métiers d’Art 2015, AW14 and Cruise 2013 ads, and 15 of its shows. 

The unveiling of this campaign comes just a week after the house’s AW16 ready-to-wear show at Paris Fashion Week. Eschewing an elaborate set for an haute couture salon, the show reflected a traditional, more intimate form of fashion presentation. As for the collection itself, Lagerfeld crafted a new, elegant take on Coco Chanel’s house codes complete with tweed, LBDs and boater hats.
