Gisele Bundchen is the most glamorous muse of all time and she is in the mix of the other great muses who have been the face of Chanel No. 5. The famous perfume of Coco Chanel has reinvented itself through a short film by filmmaker, Baz Luhrmann. In the film, she is on a beach, surfing when her lover leaves her by leaving behind a note to her. Once it was read during a photo shoot that included Luhrmann as the photographer, she quickly leaves and finds her lover. Gisele’s character is happy at last and towards the end of the film; the perfume is shown.
I find the film quite captivating because of how much emotion Gisele brought to the film. The view can experience her disrepair and joy going back to her lover. Also, the perfume and new clothing from Chanel’s spring/summer 2015 collection was represented in a editorial fashion. Viewers can take a look behind the scenes through the film by watching how photo-shoots were made. I found it unique when most of the accessories depicted the perfume bottle such as the number 5 earrings she wore in the photo-shoot and the number 5 wetsuit she wore while surfing.
Baz Luhrmann is one of my favourite filmmakers and I was pleased how well he executed the Chanel No.5 film and Gisele captivated us all once more. To see the short film, click on the link and I would love to hear your thoughts about the new Chanel No.5 film.
