Update: Chanel has been catching some heat for its latest campaign starring Kaia Gerber. People voiced their opinions on the brand's Facebook and Instagram, debating the luxury brand's decision to use the 16-year-old model. Some feel that she is too young, while others claim that she's barely dressed in the photos, even though she is pictured in a simple white dress.
Original Post: For some people, chilling on the couch involves a bowl of chips, comfortable sweatpants, and probably a messy bun. For Kaia Gerber though, who posed on Coco Chanel's suede couch for the brand's new Spring 2018 handbag campaign, "lounging" has never been so fabulous. This was Kaia's first-ever Chanel campaign, and Karl Lagerfeld shot her inside the late French designer's glamorous Parisian apartment.
In the photos, the model stretches her legs across the couch and, even at such a young age, embodies the true timelessness of the brand. (In case you forgot, this 16-year-old model has owned the Fashion Week runways and made a 25-year-old adult like myself jealous of every outfit she rocks.) As for Chanel's iconic bags in the campaign, they received an edgy upgrade with colorful designs like embroidered tweed and PVC.
