Chanel's New Face
Chanel announced today actress Keira Knightley will be the new face for their Coco Mademoiselle perfume campaign. The choice could not be more perfect. Mademoiselle Knightley is chic, classic yet contemporary and breathtaking. Exactly what a Chanel muse should be. Finally the fashion forces are taking under consideration tabloids don't sell perfume. Could you imagine a Mary Kate scent? Starbucks and patchouli aren't don't exactly olfactory aphrodisiacs.
Yes Chanel has gotten its celebrity face right, which can't really be said of its French compatriot that has made the less than discerning choice of a freckled teen sensation as their latest muse (both of whom will remain unnamed). I'm sorry but do I really need the poster child of crack cocaine, bulimia and celebrity hooker syndrome selling me monagrammed bags? No. No I don't.
I look forward to seeing Miss Knightley in the new Chanel ads and in Pirates of the Caribbean 3 this summer. Now if we only could convince the spectacled bag man himself to reconsider...
Final Word: Ok, I know we've been MIA for a while but the Blackberrie is back in action, today, tomorrow, and forever.
