Is there a short fashion film out there at the moment that Karl Lagerfeld hasn’t directed? We have the third and final Magnum Ice Cream ad starring Rachel Bilson and Baptiste Giabiconi, directed by the Chanel creative director for you right here.
Entitled Applause, Bilson’s costume echos that of the ballet costumes in the ballet thriller Black Swan though the plot is a little less psycho and a little more whimsical. Bilson plays a prima ballerina who just wants to get back to her dressing room to enjoy a Magnum Ice Cream. Instead she’s surrounded by well-wishers and her boyfriend (played by Giabiconi). Eventually she gets to her Magnum Ice Cream and finds that a sweeter treat than the sexy male model boyfriend in a leather jacket.
I don’t know if we agree but we think this is the cutest out of all three Magnum Ice Cream short films by the fashionable trio of Bilson, Giabiconi and Lagerfeld.
