This campaign is Michelle’s first high fashion endorsement and strays far from her wholesome American sweetheart image. The crux of Williams’s appeal lies within the romanticism of her demure. If anything, she seemed more suited for a Dior campaign, all rosy lipped with curly hair – well, until now of course.
Vogue photographer Peter Lindbergh brought the campaign to life with hairstylist Sam McKnight and with Stéphane Marais on hair. With wine coloured lips, dark eyebrows and that edgy pixie haircut, Miss Williams is certainly more naughty than nice. During the shoot she says that “it’s like falling in love, I fall in love with characters like falling in love in life”
Now speaking of love, let’s not forget that Michelle models two of Louis Vuitton’s latest handbags, “The W” and “The Capucines”.
Conceptually, “The W” could have been overbearing mainly due to the combination of leather with fabric, however upon execution it represents a renewed revision of their infamous Monogram. “The Capucines” is a triumph in leather artistry with feminine clean lines.

Last season it was all about those massive hula hoop bags, jaws dropped to the floor when a ten metre high, 24 tonne real iceberg graced the runway at his autumn/winter 2010 show. The season before that, I sat on my sofa with a guilty tub of Ben and Jerry’s and watched Lily Allen rise from under the runway which was a barn, (yes, a barn) singing as two models kissed. Oh Karl.
In a successful bid to set the bar for this season, on Tuesday, a rotating globe resided in the centre of the runway. Those with 20/20 vision would have noticed sparkling flags bearing a double C trademark pinned to the globe representing Chanel boutique locations. In all of its imposing glory, the potentially overbearing globe was a thing of beauty. The lights dimmed, music softly swarmed in and the models literally walked around the world. Chanel’s Bouclé tweed suits came in their signature chic monochrome, as well as in soft dainty pinks. For the evening look, graceful silk dresses in subtly voluminous shapes took their cue reminiscent of Coco’s heyday. The grey and black globe was the perfect centrepiece.
The verdict is in; its Karl’s world, a world which is très chic, très risqué and très Chanel.
A few books have changed my life.
This is one of them.
And I was like….why are you so obsessed with me?

This is my wedding dress.
I cannot stand all of that Cinderella nonsense.
I am completely besotted with Elie Saab’s beadwork, attention to detail and dedication to complementing the female shape. From Beyonce to Kiera Knightley, every woman can wear an Elie Saab gown.
