Gisele Bündchen and Keira Knightley for Chanel

Chanel Taps Two Beauties from Brazil and Britain

Whilst news broke this morning that English actress Keira Knightley will play Coco Chanel in the new Karl Lagerfeld film, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen has been named as the face of Les Beiges, a new powder bronzer line for the brand.

The film honours the 100th anniversary of the first ever Chanel store which opened in Deauville, France in 1913. Although it will look like the filming was done in the charming town of Deauville, they will just be sets recreated in Paris. Other models and actresses in the film are Stella Tennant, Clotilde Hesme, Tallulah Harlech and toddler Hudson Kroenig.

On the beauty side of things, Peter Philips has developed a range of bronzing powders that have just hit the shelves at £38 a piece for the compact and £33 for the kabuki brush. If you ask me, Gisele, with her glowing, tanned skin and impeccable bone structure is the perfect model for the five-colour line. Watch the 20 second advert above that features Gisele with her Les Beiges bronzer and tell me what you think of these choice ladies that Chanel has hand-picked.
