Tilda Swinton has become the latest star of Chanel.

The French fashion house's creative director Karl Lagerfeld cast the Oscar-winning actress in iconic brand's advertising campaign for the Paris-Edinburgh collection, the luxury metiers d'art range of pre-fall ready-to-wear.

Karl chose Tilda because her Scottish roots matches the collection's inspiration, and she is also ''a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance''.

The shoot took place earlier this month in the Chateau d'Ecouen, a castle from the Renaissance period located near Chantilly, France.

Last year, Tilda starred in a short futuristic fashion film, created by Paris-based photographer and artist Katerina Jebb.

The 52-year-old star - who is also teh face of Pringle of Scotland - donned a white laboratory coat complete with white gloves and high heels for the production, entitled 'The Future Will Last a Very Long Time', which was screened on a loop during each night of the Paris Fall Festival - a contemporary arts spectacle known in France as the Festival d'Automne à Paris - from September 29 to October 1.
