She’s been snapped in many a glam Chanel frock, both new and vintage. Last year she chose Chanel for her wedding dress when she married Ahmet Zappa – son of the late and legendary Frank.
Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld took the snaps for the new spec ads.
Selma said: “I have a lovely relationship with Karl… It’s different to be shot by him. I’m so comfortable in front of him.
“Sometimes when I work with other photographers, they say, ‘Give me more Selma, more, more.’
“But they don’t really know who I am. With Karl, he’s capturing something that’s more – my personal flaws, the way I am as a girl, not a model.”
