MUSE-ONCE-REMOVED: Tallulah Harlech has Karl Lagerfeld to thank for her latest film role. She plays a Chanel model who has to sell her real-life mother, Amanda, a hat in a short silent film that is supposed to be used as an opener for Chanel’s pre-fall presentation next month. Her mother only had a few words of wisdom before the cameras rolled: “Don’t pout like Keira Knightley,” the younger Harlech said last week at the Bowery Hotel.

Lagerfeld, whom she has known forever, was more vocal about his preferences. “Karl has a very specific way he wants you to walk and look and turn,” she said. “Karl is hilarious. As serious and scary as he looks, he tells the best jokes.”

When not swapping one-liners with the designer, the Harlechs routinely share clothes, accessories and fashion advice. The young thespian is flying back to England to shoot an independent film for Working Title Films. Afterwards, she will return to Gotham for more work in film and theater.

Harlech was among the guests at the Cool vs. Cruel ceremony, which honored Marc Bouwer and Calvin Klein in absentia.
