Alice Dellal for Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld/Chanel

Alice Dellal has been the face of Chanel's bag line for quite some time now (as far as the fashion industry is concerned, at least) and the company's latest advertising campaign has the model riding a horse and looking much classier than previous campaigns.
