A long, illustrious list of women—Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, Catherine Deneuve—have been the face of Chanel’s signature No. 5 scent since it was first introduced in the ’20s. Now, the French house is going a little unorthodox—it confirmed today that Brad Pitt will be the new face of the women’s fragrance.
Although Chanel has given no further details on the upcoming advertising campaign, E! is suggesting that Pitt will shoot a commercial in London sometime this week, and the result will be released overseas sometime later this year. His paycheck for the effort? Rumored to be in the seven figure range. We can’t wait to see the result.
