Gisele Bundchen stuns in her new Chanel No. 5 commercial!

gisele-bundchen-cn5

Today we’re getting our first look at Gisele Bundchen’s new Chanel No. 5 commercial – and she looks better than ever!

The new three-minute film showed up on Huffington Post this morning – take a look below!

Hollywood director Baz Luhrmann (“Romeo + Juliet,” “Moulin Rouge!” and “The Great Gatsby”) weaves a beautiful story in the perfume’s campaign titled “The One That I Want” about a woman who struggles with having it all — love, family and her career.

Having worked with his dear friend and actress Nicole Kidman 10 years ago in the previous Chanel No. 5 film, Luhrmann was surprised at how fearlessly Bündchen went after this role. “What I love about her is that her body is her instrument from early on, and she’s learned to express so many things. She can do anything!” he said.

Whether riding killer waves in a Chanel wetsuit and surfboard, embracing her child before heading off to a glamorous photo shoot or sharing a passionate kiss with “Game of Thrones” actor Michiel Huisman in a sexy little black dress, Bündchen embodies what Luhrmann described as the spirit of Coco Chanel: a liberating energy.

Watch the new Chanel No. 5 commercial set to the sultry sounds of Lo-Fang’s “You’re the One That I Want” below, and tell us if you believe it is as timeless as the fragrance.

 

Kristen Stewart’s first Chanel ads are out – see them here!

kristen-stewart-chanel-ad3

In December, Kristen Stewart was named the new face of Chanel’s Paris-Dallas Collection. Today we’re seeing the first pictures from the campaign, and I’m completely underwhelmed by them. The photos were shot in Paris (where she was photographed walking around with a $3,400 Chanel bag), and looks very….. cowboy to me. I don’t know. I just think they’re pretty boring.

The pictures are from Instagram, and not official leaks…. so maybe it’s just the quality that makes the pictures look so boring? No….they’re just boring.

Rooney Mara’s 7 Beauty Must-Haves

InStyle magazine chatted with Rooney Mara to find out the secret to her gorgeous skin and  get the scoop on her favorite products. To read more check out the current issue of InStyle magazine on newsstands now.

Your complexion is the envy of every beauty editor I know. Please don’t tell us it’s just good genes.
People are going to hate me for saying this, but I really don’t have a regimen. I don’t use a lot of products because my skin is so sensitive, though I always wear sunscreen, usually Chanel and Dermalogica. I try to eat healthfully and hardly ever drink alcohol. When you eat the right things, you don’t need that many products.

And the Rooney Mara don’t-hate-me-because-my-skin-looks-airbrushed diet consists of …
Well, I’m gluten-free. A bunch of people in my family have celiac disease, so I stopped eating wheat about a year ago, and right away I noticed a difference. I’m also vegan; I basically eat only fruits and vegetables. I’ve never felt better than I do now.

Let’s talk hair. Your jet-black strands and blunt baby bangs may well be in the Pinterest hall of fame for “aspirational cut.”
We did short bangs for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it was when they grew out that people really started to like them. As for color, I’ve been lighter, but I prefer being brunette. I find that people with dark hair don’t need to wear as much makeup.

Professional pluckers tell me they get dozens of requests for “Rooney Mara brows.” Are they high-maintenance?
They’re actually no-maintenance—that’s why they’re so prominent!

Taylor Swift lands the November cover of InStyle, and she talks all about love.

taylor-swift-instyle-1011

Taylor Swift lands the November cover of InStyle Magazine, although it looks like a Christmas cover, doesn’t it?

The 23-year-old singer looks beautiful on the new cover. According to Celebrity makeup artist, Taylor is wearing Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lip Color in Pirate for Taylor’s lipstick. I wish I could pull off a red like that!

Taylor admits, “I feel most confident when I have a red lip on,” and I think she looks great!

On her current love life, she admits, “I think that you can love people without it being the great love. Ed [Sheeran] said something that really resonated with me. He says there are different kinds of love: There’s physical attraction, mental attraction, and emotional attraction; there’s also comfort and obsession. You need to have all of those things in one person. You have to mentally respect them, be physically attracted, and have a comfort level. You’re obsessed with them, yet you also know they’re going to stay. I’ve never had that in one person.”

On looking for love. “I think [my taste] needs to change. My friends tease me about the fact that if someone seems bad or shady or like they have a secret, I find them incredibly interesting. That’s just a phase I’ve been in lately. I don’t think this should be how I proceed in life. It’s important to be self-aware about these things because you don’t want to end up with that guy.”

When searching for the right one, “Sometimes you know after two dates that you’re not the right fit. And sometimes you know you’re not the right fit, and you fall for it anyway. One thing I’ve learned that I’m proud of – drum roll, please – is when to walk away. I’ve had some short relationships because I know when to do that.”

Here’s Taylor’s lipstick. Wish I could pull it off! BUY HERE
