The siren has already walked in a Balenciaga show in a silver gown this year, but posing for print ads for the brand takes her to a whole other level.
In the past she has modeled before for Chanel perfume Chanel No 5, appearing in print ads and TV commercials, but she did not model for Chanel fashion.
This comes just as it was announced she will receive the American Film Institute (AFI) Life Achievement Award.
