Brad Pitt for Chanel No5? I think we we’re all surprised (and very impressed) when we heard the news! But the wait is over and the images for the campaign are here…

I HAVE to start by the TV ad, that was directed by Anna Karenina filmmaker Joe Wright, who had previously worked on Chanel’s 2011 spots for Coco Mademoiselle featuring actress Keira Knightley. In the 30 second black & white commercial, a very casual and sensual Brad Pitt talks about life & love… how can we not be seduced?

Brad Pitt joins a cast of iconic beauties including Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman,Vanessa Paradis, and becomes the company’s first-ever male spokesman. Here’s the official ad, shot by Steven Klein…

…and some images from the shoot in London, just for our personal pleasure!

So what do you think of the campaign? Do you like the idea of a man advertising a women’s fragrance? I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
