Tilda Swinton face of new Chanel campaign

It's been a busy week for Tilda Swinton. Just one day after she appeared in the new David Bowie music video, the Oscar-winning actress has been announced as the new face of Chanel Métiers d'Art. 

British actress and fashion icon Tilda Swinton is the next face of Chanel in a new series of images set to appear in print in May this year. 

Last December Karl Lagerfeld unveiled the Chanel Metiers d'Art (also known as pre-fall) show at Linlithgow Palace outside of Edinburgh. So perhaps it was a natural choice to pick ethereal Caledonian beauty Tilda Swinton for the collection's print advertising campaign. 

"Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Edimbourg collection," said Lagerfeld, Chanel's creative director. "She is of course Scottish, but more than that, she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance," he told Vogue UK

As usual the campaign was shot by Lagerfeld (a keen lensman) himself, who has photographed Swinton on a number of previous occasions, most recently as part of his "Little Black Jacket" book and exhibition. 

Swinton is best known for her film work, and picked up the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award in February 2008 for her role in "Michael Clayton." She is also something of a fashion fan, starring as the face of the Pringle of Scotland luxury brand for a number of years, and appearing regularly at runway shows in London, Paris, and New York City.
