>> There's still no word on who is doing the honors for Chanel's mainline Spring 2009 ad campaign that was shot at Karl Lagerfeld's house in Vermont, but some peripheral roles have been handed out.  Jerry Hall will take over Chanel handbag duties from Christy Turlington in a new campaign inspired by Colette's Cheri, the novel exploring the affair between a woman and a much younger man, which is coincidentially also an upcoming film by The Queen's Stephen Frears.

And those who are hoping Sasha Pivovarova will nab the Chanel Spring 2009 campaign, there's still hope.  She's definitely still a Karl favorite — he shot the Pre-Fall Paris-Moscow collection on her in Paris a couple of weeks ago — lookbook or campaign, it's undetermined — and then she wore Chanel couture to the Vogue China Icons ceremony in Beijing on Saturday (above).
