Chanel has tapped Australian actress, Margot Robbie as the new face J12, the House's watch collection, named and inspired by the silhouettes of racing yachts. Over the last two decades, J12 spearheaded the watch industry's ceramic boom.
The Academy Award-nominated actress has a history with Chanel, dating back to 2018 when she wore a Chanel piece at the Oscars and was appointed as the house ambassador. In 2018, she was named the face of the Coco Neige 2018-2019 campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld and in 2019, was chosen as the face of the Gabrielle Chanel Essence fragrance.
Earlier this week at the Oscars 2021, Robbie donned a custom mermaid dress—that took 205 hours to make—which was inspired by a piece in Chanel's Autumn/Winter 2019-2020 haute couture collection. She was also wearing Chanel fine jewellery.
