Over the years, many high profile celebrities have lent their faces to ads for Chanel. Brad Pitt. Blake Lively. Keira Knightley. That’s just to name a few. And now, the fashion house has a new spokesperson. But it’s not a star of that smash hit movie that’s now in theaters. Nope, instead it’s someone who’s been dead for more than 50 years. It’s none other than Marilyn Monroe.
The highlight of Chanel’s new campaign is a TV spot featuring video footage of Monroe, as well as audio from an interview between Monroe and the editor of Marie Claire. In the interview, Monroe revealed that the only thing she wore to bed was Chanel No. 5 perfume.
