Lily Cole plays chess with former world champ

British model/actress Lily Cole showed off her brainpower by taking on a former world champion in a game of chess.

The St Trinian's star, who graduated from the U.K.'s prestigious Cambridge University last year (11), attended the launch of the World Chess Grand Prix in London on Thursday (20Sep12) and was challenged to a game by Bulgarian grandmaster Veselin Topalov.


She was defeated by the expert in a 10-minute game, but insisted she hadn't had enough practise.
