Gisele Bündchen for Chanel Beauty SS 2013 Campaign by Mario Testino

News backstage. Before being chosen the new face of Chanel Beauty , Gisele Bündchen almost lost his métier to Rihanna. The singer was one of the celebrities listed by brothers Gerard and Pierre Wertheimer, owners of the French maison, to star in the campaign, simply because they charge a fee considerably lower than the Brazilian.
Although the numbers of contracts are guarded, subject matter experts estimate that Gisele earned at least $ 4 million to transfer [her] image to Chanel for the next six months. Rihanna, it seems, would have done the same job for half the value.
Who has the final say by choosing the supermodel was Karl Lagerfeld, who managed to convince Wertheimer explaining that Gisele is a "fashion icon bigger" and therefore more like a brand.
Another Testino shit job. Few more images, & the video.
