    Default Chanel spokeswoman

    Suppose you had to cast the spokeswoman for the next Chanel perfume campaign: who would you choose? Money is no object, but bare in mind that you CAN'T turn back time.

    Your spokeswoman will feature in print ads and a tv commercial. Feel free to add what these would look like (romantic, abstract, young/fresh, urban, artsy, etc.)

    :-X I can't turn back time? Hmph. Well, let's see. Definitely NOT Renee Zellweger. Zita Jones is considered a great beauty these days, but not to me. I'm trying to think. Gisele Bundchen? She's got fire and a fat free body. If a gun were held to my head, I might go with her. ???

    You can't do Catherine Zeta-Jones anyway - she's an Elizabeth Arden spokesmodel. Renee Zellweger's out, too - her favorite perfume is Thierry Mugler's Angel.

    I'm not sure, either. ???

    ??? See, MFfan310? It's hard to choose somebody. Thanks for the info on Jones . . . had no idea. Didn't know anything about what Zellweger likes. Maybe Kidman was a good choice, although she leaves me cold. I'm not allowed to luxuriate over why my choice from the past, would have been so perfect . . . but she would have been. A face like no other . . . and intrigue, to spare. Sorry, Marcello. Back to the present: any European film stars, that might be good??

    I would love to see Daphne Guinness as a model for Chanel no.5 but her background is too controversial to make her a spokesperson; her grandmother was Diana Mosley. But she's got style and she is a real beauty.

    Hi Gattopardo . . . is this woman Gloria Guinness's daughter?? Gloria certainly was beautiful . . . one of Balenciaga's favorites. Any pictures we can see?

    Default Re: Chanel spokeswoman

    No, she is the daughter of Baron Moyne (his family's name is Guinness as in beer) and Suzanne Lisney...I tried to google for images but the only ones I found didn't do her justice.

    Hi Gattopardo,

    Oh, I see . . . she does sound like a good 'face,' but . . . are we talking illegitimate birth??

    Do a complete unknown. Shroud the whole thing in mystery. Have very stylized ads with lots of mist and dim light- show only parts of her face, almond shaped eyes, and voluptuously quaffed body. Lots of velvet, moist, misty streets in Paris, candle light. Have a virile male, half driven mad by desire, catching glimpses of her everywhere but never quite able to meet up with her- only the trail of her luscious and mysterious perfume in the air. Do this for 6 months or more and even keep the name of the model a mystery. Finally, finally- just like a soap opera- do spots where the two fated lovers meet and start their torrid affair. ŃChanel No 5- the magnetism, the mystery- the woman!ń

    IÔm so full of BS!
    Scent is such a lovely, simple pleasure!

    Oh no...She's as U-class as you can get. Her grandmother Diana Mosley (nÄe Mitford) divorced her husband (Guinness) to marry Oswald Mosley (the leader of the Union of British Fascists); she probably was one of the few persons to have known Churchill ( a cousin) and Hitler intimately.

    Great idea, Artisan! Sounds just like the search for Scarlett O'Hara, which brings me back to my favorite pick: Vivien Leigh! :-)

    She can be a Vivien Leigh look-alike. How about that?

    :-/ This is a tough one, Marcello! Here's the situation, as I see it: Stick with Nicole Kidman's crazed eyes and protruding buttocks, resurrect a beauty from the past, enlist a society woman with controversial social connections, or go for an unknown. I'll throw in a real, 'dark horse' candidate: what about Hillary Clinton? :P

    Does Rachel Weisz pimp any perfumes? She's stunning.

    As for the other recommendations, I think one of the fascists mentioned might be quite apt, considering Mme Chanel's alleged role as "officers' mess" when the Nazis occupied Paris

    You're right as usual! I never made the connection but it's certainly valid.

    In one of my previous posts I saw I made a mistake: Diana Mosley was the former daughter in law of baron Moyne and not his daughter. She was born a Mitford (sister of Nancy, Jessica and Unity -also of Deborah and Pamela but the latter 2 were/are less controversial than the other 4).

    Hi Gattopardo . . . remember, if all else fails . . . there's Hillary Clinton. Her daughter Chelsea has had a makeover; the opportunity for mother daughter ad campaigns, exists. Big Chanel. Little Chanel.

    They could even launch a bag with the same theme...A miniature version for the daughter and a big tote for the mother. Perhaps Chanel could also design a quilted cigar holder for daddy...

    Hi Gattopardo!

    Such artistry and imagination! A campaign such as this could 'open' up a 'whole' new line of quilted, Chanel accessories!

    Resurrect Miss Audrey Hepburn and get rid of Marilyn Monroe as Miss Audrey was a woman of the highest class and stature in demeanor and lifestyle and fashion and a true philanthropist in the way she devoted the latter part of her life to helping the destitute and outcasts of society. She is Chanel to me.

    Iman, easily. She's alluring, gorgeous, & reeks of elegance.

    Whether famous or unknown, I think it's time for a woman of color to be the face of N░5. I don't mean "mixed" either; a smooth nubian tone would be perfect.


    I'd like to see a woman of Asian descent as well.

    I agree with all of that; maybe Luping Wang from their recent catwalk show? http://models.com/Work/chanel-chanel-fw-15-show/359015

    To be fair, they'll probably just have a wide variety of spokeswomen eventually. Their fragrance assortment in particular is far too varied to just be represented by one person.

    Absolutely. She's gorgeous. I can also see Zhang Ziyi as a remarkable face of N░5. To me, she's got it all.
