When we heard that iconic movie star Marilyn Monroe was going to be the newest face for Chanel’s equally as iconic (No.5) perfume we were all excited. And as usual Chanel did not disappoint.
The advert is made up of romantic grainy black and white vintage clips of the superstar alluring paparazzi, capturing both the glamour of Marilyn and the world-renown scent, Channel No. 5.
And narrating the footage is Marilyn herself, speaking those oh so iconic words of the famous 1952 interview with Life Magazine: “Marilyn, what do you wear to bed? So I said I only wear Chanel No.5”
The advert captures the sensuality and retro glamour of the scent perfectly in a beautifully put together way, which shows Chanel’s choice of model to be the perfect choice this year.
