Chanel’s new resort ads have leaked. As in, the ones for the collection that walked a Venetian boardwalk just last week. The new campaign, shot by Karl Lagerfeld, stars Karen Elson, who, curiously, did not walk the runway show. Karl also stuck his main man candy Baptiste Giabiconi in there with her. He only replaced Brad Kroenig as the top hot young thing at Karl’s side about two months ago. Judging by how stunned he looks in the ad, he must still be adjusting to this luminous new post. Perhaps that’s why he only appears in one photo from the campaign — but at least he earns his keep. See the rest of Karl’s new campaign in the slideshow.
