Watch This Style: Marilyn Monroe’s Never Before Seen Footage & Her Love Of Chanel No. 5!

Chanel should’ve rethought their whole campaign for their legendary fragrance, Chanel No. 5, especially since Brad Pitt’s lackluster black & white monologue has fallen short its $7 million price tag.  I was lucky enough to spot this video of never been seen footage & audio of the one & only, Marilyn Monroe, talking about her love of the fragrance, which is a much better & sexier way to talk about the classic scent.  Not to mention that she’s famously quoted, when asked “What do you wear to bed?,” with answer “Chanel No. 5.” For all your lovers of MM & vintage style, get a load of this really cool video & share it with your Style Darlings! Happy Styling!

Watch This Style: Part Two of Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 Commercial!

It was only Monday when the full-length video commercial for Chanel No. 5 was revealed, starring a black & white, monotoned, monologue-toting Brad Pitt. Critics were underwhelmed by the recitation since he naturally doesn’t seem like a good fit for the brand, which had been previously endorsed by the elegant likes of Nicole Kidman & Keira Knightley.  However, a sequel video has been released, more in a dazzling commercial format, revealing a more suitable & feminine side to the fragrance’s portrayal.  Perhaps just sticking to Brad’s voice-over will make for a more effective campaign? What do you think of this second video? Are you a fan of the timeless perfume? Happy Styling!

Watch This Style: A Black & White Brad Pitt For Chanel No. 5!

Twitter has been a-buzz all week since the eight second audio clip of Brad Pitt for Chanel No. 5 ($120.00) was released.  Now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for has arrived with the full video, featuring the four-time Oscar-nominated actor in black & white, reciting an obscure monologue entitled “There You Are.” Directed by the Anna Karenina-helmed visionary, Joe Wright, Brad’s $7 million ad has certainly paid off since this is first time a male spokesmodel has endorsed anything for Chanel.  Brad’s face & voice join the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, & most recently Keira Knightley (see Coco Mademoiselle here) who have all fronted the brand in the past.

What do you think of the ad? Is Brad Pitt a good fit for Chanel? Would you like to have seen something different for such an iconic fragrance?
