BFF: Cat Power and Lagerfeld?

The fashion industry is buzzing about a possible partnership between the artist and Chanel's main man.

Could Cat Power’s Chan Marshall be the new poster girl for Chanel? That’s what insiders in the fashion industry are saying after the singer was seen dripping with Chanel jewelry at the Paris launch party for a new CD, Les Musiques Que J’Aime, compiled by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld.

Marshall told Women’s Wear Daily that Lagerfeld “discovered” her outside of New York’s Mercer Hotel. “I was outside waiting, sitting on a pile of Louis Vuitton luggage, drinking water, with an apple and a cigarette in my hand, my cell phone, oh, and two guitars, and out comes Karl,” Marhsall told WWD. “He walks up, looks at me and says, ‘Only a woman can look glamorous when smoking.’ And I lowered my glasses and pointed to [the shadows under my] eyes and said, ‘With these?'” Dark circles or not, word in the industry is that Marshall could be the new face of Chanel’s jewelry collection.

A spokesperson for Cat Power could not be reached at press time.
