Tilda Swinton, new face of Chanel

Known for her androgynous style and avant-garde fashion sensibilities, Tilda Swinton, the 52-year old Academy Award winning actress has been chosen by Karl Lagerfeld as the face of Chanel's pre-fall Paris-Edimbourg collection, which was showcased at Linlithgow Palace last December. The collection was inspired by Mary Queen of Scots and featured knits, plaids, tartans, kilts, argyle and above all rich Scottish heritage.

"Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Edimbourg collection," Lagerfeld said in a statement. "She is of course Scottish, but more than that she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance." The ad-campaign which will debut this June was even photographed by Mr Lagerfeld, at the Château d'Ecouen, a Renaissance-period castle located near Chantilly, France.

The news comes just days before Chanel’s much- anticipated Paris Fashion Week show on Monday :) So, what do you think of Tilda as Chanel's new muse?
