As if Cara Delevingne isn’t already good at everything, now she can officially add “singer” to her résumé. Confirming reports that Cara was making music with Pharrell Williams, Chanel has just unveiled a teaser for its next short film, Reincarnation.
Meant to promote Chanel’s Métiers d’Art collection showing next month in Salzburg, Austria, the clip stars Cara and Pharrell as royal portraits come to life. Directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the two dance and sing to a Pharrell-original track called “CC the World” – obviously a nod to the label’s double-C logo.
Better yet, the film chronicles an important historical story: while vacationing in Salzburg in 1954, Coco Chanel found inspiration for the iconic Chanel jacket in a staff uniform worn by a hotel elevator attendant.
Alongside their Chanel movie debut, Cara and Pharrell will also star in an ad campaign for the Métiers d’Art collection, shot by (you guessed it) Karl Lagerfeld. The full film won’t be released on Chanel.com until December 1, the night before the collection is premiered. And I’m guessing Cara will have a starring role in that show, too.
