Gisele for CHANEL!
I frequently say that I want to live in an entire reality directed by Baz Luhrmann (and styled, of course, by his phenomenal wife, Catherine Martin) and find myself wondering what kind of WORDS they even use to describe the epic scenes on which they collaborate for their various flicks. “I’m envisioning a glittery rave, but with a drag queen holding court front and center belting out the words to a Donna Summer tune of yore with a twist!” Sentences of that ilk peppering their vernacular must be as common as fictional 5’11” dudes on online dating sites. (Anyone who is actually 5’11” would just say he’s 6 feet tall.)
Anyway. So I was the portrait of a super-fan when I recently attended a press event for Chanel. There, I got to see Baz’s latest labor of love, a mini film directed by the auteur filmmaker with design by Catherine, and it features supermodel Gisele Bündchen. The campaign, called “The One That I Want,” (shout-out to Grease!) celebrates the iconic fragrance, CHANEL N°5.
As for makeup, fashion and jewelry, I do have the breakdowns, and I know you want it.
