SCOTS Hollywood actress Tilda Swinton has been selected by top fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld to be the face of the advertising campaign for Chanel’s Paris-Edinburgh collection – the annual Metiers d’Art collection that was shown in December at Linlithgow Palace.

The designer said: “Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Edimbourg collection. She is of course Scottish, but more than that she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance.”

For the Chanel shoot he photographed her earlier in the Château d’Ecouen, a Renaissance castle near Chantilly, France.
