News from Paris concerning our friend and part-time New York resident by way of Georgia Chan “Cat Power” Marshall: She’s been tapped to be the new face of Chanel’s jewelry. Karl Lagerfeld explains:
“I saw her in New York in front of the Mercer Hotel and she was smoking and I said, ‘Only a woman — she — can look glamorous while smoking.’”
Makes sense, considering she burned through a full pack, minimum, during her set at Irving Plaza a few weeks ago — one that ended with Marshall on all fours singing a sultry, impromptu karaoke version of Gnarls Barkley‘s “Crazy” because she had run past curfew and the club had cut the band off and flipped on the house music.
