Chanel west coast looks like a 21st century coco in ‘karl lagerfeld’ video shoot [photos]

When your parents name you Chanel, the rest of the world is bound to make a connection to the famous designer, and Rob Dyrdek’s rapping protege is honouring the eponymous fashion house the best way she knows how: with a new single and music video! The song, “Karl Lagerfeld,” is named after the label’s current head designer, and Chanel certainly looks like a modern day muse for Coco, herself, in the photos she posted from set. Eat your heart out, Audrey Hepburn!

“Hyped 4 my video shoot tomorrow!” Chanel tweeted last night, before kicking off the big production in downtown Los Angeles this morning. And soon enough, she was head-to-toe in classic Chanel black and white, spitting rhymes. “Lookin’ so fly I’m tied with the sky,” she raps in the clip below during an early performance for AXS TV at Coachella 2013.

One thing’s missing, though…the colourfully chalked locks CWC rocked this season on “Ridiculousness.” Guess there’s no room for pastel in a Lagerfeld world!


Chanel looks like royalty around the shoot’s lavish props.
