    Audrey Tatou is star of new Chanel advertising film


    The 5th of May has been designated Chanel No. 5 day in celebration of the new advertising film starring Audrey Tatou. The film is directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who also directed *Audrey in 'Amelie' and it will be shown on-line at www.chaneln5.com today.

    I have seen the trailer and was only half impressed. I think Chanel no. 5 needs a grander star to carry it off. Yes, Kidman was the perfect muse for the ad. Tatou to me seems more suited for something more impish and whimsical. I could see her in a remake of Lou Lou ad for example. Just my opinion anyway.

    I really enjoyed the video interview with the perfumer (Jacques Polge). That was nice. I agree very much that Tautou seems a bit young and lacking in gravitas for no.5, but I'm thinking that it's all part of a gentle push for Eau Première, which does need a younger face. I think Eau Première is a wonderful fragrance - I love it more than the original, frankly. But it has to be brought out delicately. It's like bringing a princess into the limelight without diminishing the queen. So going with somebody more young and very French, and showcasing the original with just a final "by the way, here is the newer, younger..." - the whole thing is very smart, I think. I think Kidman was perfect for no.5, but I think this is definitely the way to debut Eau Première.

    What a gorgeous commercial. Istanbul hasn't looked that good in a long time. Tautou is a perfect choice for this commercial to associate her quickly and strongly with the Chanel brand as she is also starring in an upcoming biopic based on Coco Chanel's life.

    edit: BTW Her last name is actually spelled Tautou.

    I agree with RP: the interview with Polge on the site is very interesting.

    Also, I think Tatou is a bit too young for Chanel no. 5. You'll need a very charismatic woman in her early 40s (Nicole Kidman, yes) to convey the real Chanel No. 5 attitude. Tatou would be nicer for No. 19, and I think she's outgrown Coco Mademoiselle, which would have been great during her Amélie spell.

    By the way, she has gorgeous hair in this commercial. I like brunettes.

    LOL! There's a part of me that would really like to see them do that! But I just for the life of me can't figure out how they could pull it off.
