Watch Marilyn Monroe’s NEW “Chanel No. 5” Commercial…
When Two Icons Merge…
After recently announcing Marilyn Monroe as the new face of Chanel No. 5, the French fashion house has now unveiled the new ad campaign which uses actual footage of Miss Monroe. The commercial features an audio recording of a 1960 interview between Georges Belmont, who at the time was the editor of Marie Claire, and Monroe, in which she famously stated that she wore nothing but Chanel No. 5 to bed. Monroe states “You know, they ask me questions. Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed ? A pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel No. 5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude.’ But it’s the truth!”.
Both the print campaign and TV commercial are in black and white and Chanel has released three exclusive images featuring Marilyn with the perfume, however there’s still no confirmation as to which will be used throughout the actual campaign.
