Karen Elson sings 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend' in Cartier film
The British model lends her sultry voice to an upbeat rendition of the classic song for a Cartier Diamonds ad
The film recalls Marilyn's 1949 movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, where Karen is surrounded by spellbound suitors, holding onto her flying red dress. Karen belts out Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend while prancing around the City of Light in a scarlet dress.
The setting is Paris, from Place Vendôme to the Grand Palais. We see a diamond-encrusted riverboat cruising down the Seine, the Eiffel Tower and a glitzy Ferris wheel. The city's facades reflect the exhilarating, romantic tempo of the film, designed to depic the emotions a woman feels when she slips an exquisite Cartier ring on her finger.
Watch the movie above, directed by Swedish filmmaker Johan Renck, about Cartier's exquisite jewels.
