Victoria Beckham à la française

What happens when you give Karl Lagerfeld a camera and Victoria Beckham as his model? An amazing photo shoot for Elle France!

We’ve seen many great photo shoots from both, before and behind the camera, but this collaboration between fashion royalty has worked its magic: the mood of the B/W pictures, the luxurious setting and an amazingly looking Victoria. I predict the copies of the November Elle edition will be out of the shops in no time. My favourite picture is of course the one on the iconic Coco Chanel staircase with the mirrors. Enjoy.

Seeing the beauty of this…I still don’t understand what Chanel was thinking when producing the new Chanel No 5 commercial with Brad Pitt. I guess Karl Lagerfeld did not oversee that project closely enough…
