chanel spring 2013 campaign 2 Ad: Chanel Ft. 16 Year Old Ondria Hardin Spring 2013

Chanel just dropped the ad campaign for its Spring 2013 collection, starring 16-year (or 15, no one seems to know) -old American model Ondria Hardin, along with 16-year-old Yumi Lambert and Stella Tennant, who, since we’re counting, is an ancient 42!

Because more pressure and rules around using models under the age of 16 have arisen recently, a good bit of controversy has already swirled around Hardin. She walked her first show in 2011 at age 14 for Marc Jacobs, who at the time chose to ignore CFDA recommendations against using models under 16. Who will win the tug of war around what age young women should be allowed to model remains unclear, but at least for the Chanel images, Hardin looks like she fits right in and is gorgeous at that.

Beside model choices, a closer examination of the ad reveals a smalerl version of the Hoola Hoop bag that was widely featured after the show in September.

All campaign images can be viewed on the next page.
