Chanel is renouned for its lavish and always beautifully shot ads, which have previously featured a 'Moulin Rouge'-esque tale starring Nicole Kidman for Chanel No.5 and Keira Knightley baring all for Coco Mademoiselle.
This time Karl Lagerfeld has chosen a rather risque theme for the ads, which are inspired by French novelist Colette's 'Cheri'. They'll tell the story of the end of a six-year affair between a young man, played by model Baptiste Giabiconi, and his 'courtesan' - a woman almost twice his age - who will be played by long-time Chanel fan Jerry Hall.
We can't wait to see what he comes up with - watch this space.
