There are plenty of rumours flying around today that model Isabeli Fontana will replace Natalia Vodianova as the face of Chanel Beauty for Spring 2009. Chanel have neither confirmed nor denied the rumours, but 25 year old Brazilian model Isabeli was quoted on Fashion Spot talking about flying to Paris to shoot the campaign. Meanwhile NY magazine The Cut has ran with the story, stating that Natalia has been knocked off the Chanel campaign to make way for Isabeli.
Earlier this year Natalia and Isabeli both won the Versace ad campaign and it was suggested that the choice of two (relatively) curvy supermodels and mothers was a bold move for Donatella. Personally I think Isabeli is a great choice for Chanel's seriously seductive Spring line, but lets not write off Natalia just yet. What do you think of this news?
