Rocker femme Chan Marshall (better known as Cat Power) has apparently been chosen by Karl Lagerfeld to front the new Chanel jewelry collection. According to her: "I was outside [a hotel] waiting, sitting on a pile of Louis Vuitton luggage, drinking water, with an apple and a cigarette in my hand, my cell phone, oh, and two guitars, and out comes Karl. He walks up, looks at me and says, 'Only a woman can look glamorous when smoking.' And I lowered my glasses and pointed to the shadows under my eyes and said, 'With these?'"
I think it may have been the bangs, not the cigs. Karl is still in his Irina phase.
