Lily Allen is the new face of the very latest line of Chanel handbags, the Coco Cocoon
Pop singer Lily Allen has had a smashing summer; she strutted her stuff on stage at festivals from Glastonbury to Denmark. She even managed to knock Lady GaGa from the number 1 chart spot with her single The Fear.
So the fact that she's the new face of Chanel and the brand's latest handbag line must surely be the icing on the cake; after all, this is a girl who is rarely seen without one quilted number or another on her arm.
The bags in question are called the Coco Cocoon... Some are made of squishy quilted nylon while others are in the more traditional Chanel patent quilted style.
The singer's relationship with Chanel and its Creative Diector, Karl Lagerfeld, has been blossoming and Karl if full of praise for the young popster:
"She looks a lot like Gabrielle Chanel and she is a self-made woman. She is cool, young and extremely witty." Yep, we got that from those sharp lyrics.
And on the bags? "She is extremely inspiring and is completely taken with the bags - with her typical English casualness!' Karl said.
