ME & MY BOY IN PARIS - Alice Dellal for Chanel's ''Boy'' campaign
Alice Dellal, the face of the upcoming Chanel Boy campaign, on her way to the Spring-Summer 2012 Haute Couture show.
A lot of folks were startled when Chanel selected the somewhat punky Alice Dellal - socialite, sometime model and tattooed drummer in the band Thrush Metal - as the new "face" of Boy Chanel handbags. Turns out she was startled too. "So weird...so unexpected," she says in the video above, in which she talks about being selected and shares her thoughts about the handbags. "Chanel means elegance, casual elegance," she says.
