Saturday Night Live Spoofs Brad Pitt for Chanel N°5

Last night I was watching Saturday Night Live and saw not one, but four spoofs of Brad Pitt’s new commercials for Chanel N°5.  They were pretty funny – you can see the below.  Hope you have a good laugh – it’s good not to take everything too seriously :)

CHANEL N°5 Ad Film with Brad Pitt Part 2 – Wherever I Go

Here is part two of the Chanel N°5 commercial film featuring Brad Pitt and directed by Joe Wright.  The film uses the same audio of the first film with Brad Pitt speaking in the background but the imagery shows different women and of course, the iconic bottle of Chanel N°5.   I think people that didn’t like the first ad may enjoy this one more.  I enjoy both of them and I can’t wait to see more!

There’s been so much going on and though I don’t have time to do full posts on all Chanel news that comes my way – I still wanted to share some of my favorites…

You can customize your Firefox tooblar with a “Chanel” add on – I was tempted but found it distracting.

Not everyone can afford Chanel so you can learn how to DIY “Chanel-ify” a cardigan.

First Look: Maïwenn for Chanel Eyewear Campaign

Last month I wrote that Karl Lagerfeld had chosen Maïwenn to be the face of the Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 eyewear campaign.  I recently found images online of the campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld featuring a very natural looking Maïwenn wearing little makeup and with tousled hair.  Maïwenn stated:  “I had just come back from holiday, so I was feeling great…Maybe that’s the reason it looks simple, natural and spontaneous. And I think I’m wearing hardly any makeup — just a touch of concealer.”

The Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 eyewear campaign features the Tweed collection of glasses which features tweed molded onto the rubber stems of glasses.  This is the first look at the Tweed eyewear collection that I’ve seen and I can’t wait to see more.  I’m sure Chanel used the latest process to give the most realistic look.

The Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 eyewear collection will retail for about “200 euros to 380 euros, or $415 to $492 at current exchange.”  The campaign is set to publish in magazines starting in September issues when the glasses will be available for sale.

Seeing Double – Blake Lively’s Gucci Ads Look Similar to Chanel

blake lively gucci premiere
Last year Blake Lively was the face of the Chanel Mademoiselle bag campaign and this year she’s the face of Gucci Premiere fragrance. The ad campaign of the Gucci Premiere have surfaced online and it shows a reflection of Blake Lively looking back at us. The photo is very beautiful but it’s a bit similar to the Chanel Mademoiselle campaign which was shot entirely on Coco Chanel’s infamous mirrored staircase at 31 Rue Cambon – with many photos featuring a reflection of Black Lively. Do you think these photos are too similar??

First Look: Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ad Campaign

First Look Chanel Fall-Winter 2012 2013 Ad CampaignWord on the interweb is that photos of the Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ad Campaign have been leaked.  The images, presumably shot by Karl Lagerfeld, feature models sporting sever bobs amidst a white backdrop and Chanel written across the bottom of the page.  The only way to see if the rumors are true is to wait until the magazines come out.

Flash Back Friday: Inès de la Fressange for Chanel

Ines de La Fressange Chanel

Inès de la Fressange was Karl Lagerfeld’s muse in the 1980s. What a great time to be his muse! She was the first model to sign an exclusive contract with an haute couture fashion house – in this case Chanel. The relationship between Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange produced a large body of work as she was the face of the company for most of the 80 when Chanel re-emerged in 1983 until 1989. Their relationship simmered down when she decided to lend her likeness to create a bust of Marianne, the symbol of the French Republic. Karl Lagerfeld and Inès de la Fressange reunited in the past several years and we even saw Inès de la Fressange walk the runway for the Chanel Spring/Summer 2011 show.

I’ve compiled some of my favorite videos, photos and ad campaigns featuring the lovely Inès de la Fressange. Enjoy!

French Coco by Chanel Ad

I can’t get enough of these ads – I don’t know the exact year but the print ads are from 1986 to 1988 so I believe the videos are from the same time. I hate to say this but I find the video below, a commercial for the U.S. market to be a bit silly. I much prefer the French ad, it’s much more chic and truer to the brand.

US Coco by Chanel Ad

Someone, please tell me what they are saying… and how amazing is that fashion show in the background?!
