We were all a little shocked when Lily Allen was handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld to front his Coco Cocoon advertising campaign for Chanel. But it seems no one was more surprised than the British pop star herself.
Lily has revealed that she was drunk during the meeting which led to her appointment, and can barely remember what they spoke about!
"It was a big party in Paris. I was drunk and got lost in the building. I wandered into an attic room and Karl was there. We had a chat - although I can't remember what about," she told Britain's Elle magazine.
"I do remember asking about some shoes he'd designed that had a green ring in the heel. I asked how they worked. He drew a diagram explaining the physics of making the shoe - I've still got the drawing. A week later I was asked to do the campaign."
We can only wonder whether Lily's boozing saw her lose her status as the face of Chanel to Vanessa Paradis this year!
