Margot Robbie models sleek skiwear in debut Chanel campaign


Margot Robbie sports chic skiwear in her first campaign for Chanel.

The Australian actress has been tapped to front the French luxury brand’s first-ever Coco Neige collection, which is a line based around winter sports.

Margot was photographed by creative director Karl Lagerfeld for the accompanying marketing imagery, and though the recent Oscar nominee is going from strength to strength when it comes to her Hollywood stardom, she admitted that shooting under the guidance of the fashion legend was a particularly special moment.

“This shoot was one of the greatest experiences of my career,” the 27-year-old gushed in a statement. “The energy and vibe on set was so wonderful and collaborative. One of the first things Karl Lagerfeld said to me was that we never need to take ourselves too seriously.”

Teasers from the first campaign images show Margot posing against a cloudy blue sky backdrop wearing a pair of sleek ski goggles with a printed gilet and black backpack.

She also models an oversized sparkly sweater, quilted mittens and a white trapper hat.
The I, Tonya star also went on to praise Lagerfeld for his vision of the campaign, as well as his character.

“He has such a creative mind and he knows exactly what he wants and the minute he captured it, we were moving onto the next shot,” she enthused. “It was amazing. Karl Lagerfeld is a creative mastermind. I already knew he was a genius but to be able to spend time with him in person, I now know he is also just a wonderful human being.”

Margot was announced as Chanel’s latest ambassador on the day of the Academy Awards in March (18) and she celebrated the news by wearing a crisp white gown by the fashion house to the A-list event.

The Coco Neige collection will be available to purchase from July and will consist of a range of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories.
