I’m not really sure what to say about this one. I’m a bit unsure on whether I agree or even like it. When Emma Watson was announced as the new face of Burberry I got really excited because the pictures of her looked totally amazing, she just looks so stylish and this is also how she dresses and acts in ‘real life’. I was more than happy for this little celeb endorsed campaign because it didn’t feel contrived. Now for Lily Allen I’m not so sure. Just because she’s holding a bag that I LOVE does not mean I’m going to rush out and buy it (even if I did have the money). I aspire to own Chanel but I do not aspire to look/act/or be her.
Karl is said to have chosen her because she is ‘fun’ hmmmmm.
I have grown up believing that Chanel was refined, sophisticated, elegant, understated sexy and meant for the high life. I have an old Chanel ad ripped from a magazine taped to my wall because it was something I always dreamt of….Christy Turlington looks like perfection….
Somehow Lily manages to cheapen it. Making it a bit, dare I say, tacky. I like Lily, I think she is ‘fun’ I just don’t want to buy bags from her. What’s wrong with using models to sell stuff??? Bring them back….please.
