With iconic former female faces such as Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge) and Audrey Tautou (The Da Vinci Code), it is surprising to see a male, Brad Pitt (Fight Club), as the new face of Chanel No. 5. With this new selection, Pitt becomes the first male face of the renowned female perfume.
The ad (above) shows Pitt discussing Chanel No. 5's "power" and capability to stand the test of time, while the ad (below) shows him saying those same lines intermixed with visuals of female models and the perfume bottle.
The second and complete ad, shot by director Joe Wright, is currently showing on Chanel No. 5's official site.
