Crystal Renn's New Chanel Campaign Is "The Proudest Moment of Her Life"

>> Karl Lagerfeld snapped Baptiste Giabiconi and Crystal Renn in what her is her first campaign for Chanel — to promote the reopening of the brand's store in Soho, Manhattan, in September.

The shoot happened a couple of months ago in a Paris studio, and Lagerfeld asked the two models to envision themselves as lovers in a glamorous movie. “He said, ‘You’re not a model right now, you’re an actress,'" Renn told Fashionista. "The only difference between modeling and acting is that models have one second to tell a story and actresses have two hours.”

She thinks Baptiste is "perfection" »

She enjoyed working with Giabiconi, however: “He is the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen hands down. I remember being on set and trying not to stare but staring at him methodically nonetheless to try to figure out how perfection in a male looks. It’s insane when you look at him.” Working with Lagerfeld was a plus, too. “I’m absolutely freaking out,” Renn told Fashionista. “Working with Chanel has been my dream forever. As long as I’ve been working as a model I’ve been thinking about Chanel and working towards Chanel and this campaign is the proudest moment of my life.”
