Last week saw Kristen Stewart get paranoid in a short film for Chanel, and this week the French fashion house has tapped longtime muse, model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne. The videos are part of a series celebrating the house's new Gabrielle bag, designed in honor of the late Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, which made its debut at the Spring 2017 show.

The latest film was created by Japanese illustrator ShiShi Yamazaki, and sees the actress roll through the streets of a cartoon world with her two must-have accessories: a skateboard and a Gabrielle bag. The scene aligns well with her tomboy image and reflects a famous quote from Chanel: "In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." Delevingne is certainly different, and judging by her frequent appearances in Chanel campaigns, irreplaceable.

The actress has walked many a Chanel show, and recently lent her vocals to Chanel's 2015 Metiers d'Art film in 2015, alongside Pharrell. The latter will also be getting the video treatment in this series. Can we expect new music again? One thing is for sure, with Delevingne entering promo for her forthcoming film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, there will be plenty of Chanel looks walking the red carpet.
