Gisele Bundchen Is The New Face Of Chanel No 5 *Video*
Not content to just be the face of Chanel’s beauty line, former Victoria’s Secret angel, Gisele Bundchen, is taking on the role of Chanel No 5 spokeswoman. Tom Brady’s wife is taking the job away from Brad Pitt, thank g-d. That ad campaign was a joke. If you do not remember laughing at Brad trying to wax philosophical about life in black and white you’re not alone.
Chanel has turned to director Baz Luhrmann to call the shots for its upcoming Chanel No.5 ad campaign, featuring Gisele Bündchen. The duo were said to be shooting in the Hamptons’ town of Sagaponack, N.Y., Wednesday and the filming is expected to continue in New York City. This is a repeat performance for Luhrmann, who directed the 2004 campaign for the fragrance with Nicole Kidman. Bündchen is also a familiar face with the company — she appears in Chanel’s Les Beiges ads. She was chosen for her “natural beauty and modern femininity,” according to the company.
Modern femininity? Ok, sure. Why not. She does give great pose. If nothing else, she at least bumps smelly goat Brad from his misguided post as Chanel No 5 poster boy.
Considering her ease with near nudity, I wonder if the new fashion film will be less glamorous gowns from Baz and more Gisele Bundchen naked on a beach in Cannes?
