An unusual muse
Karl Lagerfeld fell for her mother’s ingénue charm in 1991 and transformed her into a bird of paradise in a cult advert directed by Goude for the perfume Coco. With big dark eyes, child-like blonde hair, a graceful figure, jutting cheekbones and a pouting mouth, Lily possesses all her mother’s Lolita charms. So it came as no surprise that the house of Chanel snapped her up as one of its muses in 2015. Before Lily, legends including Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve and Carole Bouquet have all embodied the heiress of the liberated and modern Coco. Proof, if ever you needed it, that Lily is perfectly representative of her generation’s beauty: an alien with luscious lips and strangely bewitching large eyebrows.
