    Default Call me Stupid...



    Apparently this is supposed to make me buy the new Chanel fragrance...

    I kind of see what they are shooting for, but I would suggest we hold out for the full monty...

    let's face it, I'd bang Kiera like the screen door in the black and white, pre-storm movie shot that has ominous and eerie overtones of the storm-to-come signified by the slamming screen door that none dare venture out to latch...

    scratch that, I'd bang her like the door in the storm itself!!!

    but somehow this doesn't inspire me to open my wallet...

    I'm sure I'm alone in this....

    I think it's more subtle than that.

    The add intends to have an individual's view of Chanel linked with sexy thoughts, and by all accounts given your "I'd bang Kiera but wouldn't buy Coco" it seems to have succeeded, even on a subliminal level.

    Further the add is aimed at women; a different psychology. The "I'd bang her" takes a back seat to the aspirational glamour and suggestiveness portrayed.
    Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.

    Meh, Kiera's overrated. She's like a less educated Natalie Portman, with less personality and gets naked too often.

    Kiera is all wrong for Chanel , sure she is kinda pretty but she is dull and does nothing but complain about how terrible her life is / how she sufferes for her art . She is so skinny she has the body of a pre-pubescent boy , then there are the photoshopped boobies , at the best of times they like two drawing pins on an ironing board

    Haha, without the thread I'd probally never seen this anyway. Though it seems very subtle and nothing to sexual for me. But.. a gorgeous brunette!

    When did Keira get boobs? And why did she opt for no nipples on her new boobs?

    And the Photoshop Award goes to......

    Gah. She's a vapid and flat (pardon the pun) actress. Makes me want that scent even less. Which is actually saying a lot

    Hmmm... I'd bang her myself but she needs to lose a few more pounds before I can even entertain the prospect...

    This ad is directed at women as well as at men. Sex sells! Identifying the brand with a sexy image that says "Do you want me?" would appeal to many women as well as men. . . I think. "Buy me", purchase the boldness and brazen sexiness of this image/product. They may not be willing to admit to a same sex desire, but if the fragrance is cool enough to say it is sexy and it is desirable, then they might purchase the juice instead of taking the bolder step. Its a "come on" pure and simple and works on several levels.

    Yuck!

    The strap is crooked & is driving me nuts looking at it. Take it away, please!

    And I too will ask, was there perfume in this picture?

    Hmm ! ... Do I detect a few "envious" "sour grape-y" comments here up above ???

    Personally I think she is gorgeous, and perfectly suited to Chanel's image. ...
    And although she is perfectly pretty "as is" ... I must say, that pic certainly has been "photoshoped" to within an inch of it's life.

    Still, I think it works, and suits the scent ! ... And I'm pretty sure it will have the desired effect !

    (P.S. ... As for the "boobies", as been mentioned, I think they too are just perfect. I happen to believe the whole "more than a handful (mouthful ?) is just a waist"...... ! )

    1) Shouldn't this thread be on the Industry Discussion Board, or even the Female Fragrance Discussion board ?

    2) Given the market, some additional female perspectives would be helpful to a sensible discussion.

    3) It's just advertising, and it's all been done before (Sophie Dahl and Opium anyone?).

    There was a thread about this on the women's board already. In the ad posted in that thread, she was wearing the shirt. It was much sexier, I thought, with the sheer shirt on rather than off. Consensus was that the "side boob" was airbrushed in that one too. To my eye, this ad looks like they photoshopped the shirt out of the photo--look around the beaded necklace and you'll see reflections and shadows that don't make sense. Makes you wonder why they didn't think the first ad was good enough.
