Brad Pitt Is The New Face Of Chanel Fragrance No. 5: Smooth Marketing Idea? (Photos)Joanna Mazewski
You’d think actress Angelina Jolie would be a shoe-in as the face of Chanel’s Fragrance No. 5 but it looks like their advertising team had someone else in mind: her fiancé, actor Brad Pitt. The French fashion house has just announced the father of six as the new face of their upcoming campaign for the classic fragrance.
It’s still unknown if Brad will be the face of the woman’s fragrance, which first launched in the twenties, or if the brand is launching a men’s version.
I’m actually pretty excited to see what Chanel comes up with for Brad. I’ll admit that Nicole Kidman’s advert for the fragrance was pretty mesmerizing while it ran a few years ago and French actress Audrey Tatou did a pretty good job with hers, too. I’m pretty sure they’ll come up with something classic.
Check out our photo gallery of some of Chanel’s most classic adverts for their Fragrance No. 5 perfume and tell us, do you think Brad is a good fit for their upcoming campaign? Or should have they chosen someone else?
Nicole Kidman 1 of 5Aussie actress Nicole Kidman was paid with a $8.5 million dollar contract to be the face of Chanel in the mid-2000s. It was one of Nicole's most memorable ad campaigns to date where she looked both stunning and gorgeous in their promos and television commercials for the perfume.

Audrey Tatou 3 of 5French actress Audrey Tatou looks so much like the original Coco Chanel, that we're not surprised why she was chosen to headline their ad campaign back in 2009. She looks almost similar to the iconic fashion designer in one of her very first promo shots for the ad campaign. Source via People
Classic Chanel 4 of 5In the 1950s the glamour of Chanel No. 5 was reignited by the celebrity of Marilyn Monroe. Monroe's unsolicited endorsement of the fragrance provided invaluable publicity. In a 1954 interview, when asked what she wore to bed, the movie star provocatively responded: "five drops of Chanel No. 5." Here's a still from one of their campaigns. Source via Polyvore
