I’ve been sniffing around the perfume aisles for some inspiration in anticipation of my custom blending fragrance appointment. And I’ve been known to fall heavily in love with scents sheerly based on their adverts. Sofia Coppola genius 46-second Miss Dior Chérie advert set of to the flirty French “Moi Je Joue” by Brigitte Bardot, will always be a favorite, especially preceded by the lackluster replacement starring Natalie Portman (but again a terrific, archetypal French thankless love chanson “Je T’aime…Moi Non Plus” by Serge Gainsbourg and his next lover, Jane Birkin).
When I saw this print ad for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle starring English rose Kiera Knightly, I thought I was in for another great perfume film was going to be the next Golden Globe-worthy picture.
Check out the newest big-budget perfume advert Kiera Knightly starring in Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle film. Knightly is bathed in amber light with amazing makeup and a thick, perfectly arched brow. She looks so innately strong, sensual, and ready to zoom off on a moped. I am not a huge fan of the film advert though; I think it’s a combination of Knightly’s masculine bone structure and boyish figure that makes her more Girl With The Dragon Tattoo action star than a super-sexy femme fatale.
