Brad Pitt officially named the face of Chanel No. 5 – here is the first image of Brad from Chanel!

Earlier this morning I covered a story from E! News, claiming Brad Pitt was being named the new face of Chanel No. 5, and now we’re getting the official press release from Chanel confirming the news!

Chanel has released this “official” image of Brad Pitt, confirming the deal.

Ooh, la la! C’est Brad! Brad Pitt’s famous mug has landed him a major deal unrelated to blockbuster films — a spokesmodel deal with Chanel.

“Chanel has selected world renowned actor Brad Pitt to be the face of the upcoming advertising campaign for CHANEL No. 5,” the brand said in a release.

The Chanel deal mark two firsts: it’s the 48-year-old actor’s debut beauty spokesmodel gig and the brand’s first time having a man represent its famously iconic women’s scent that launched back in the 1920s.

Pitt follows in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman, who starred in the short film No. 5 The Film in 2004 and Audrey Tautou who has held the spot as the scent’s visage since 2008.

Now, let’s all gossip about how much money Brad will make off the deal. You KNOW it was well into the 7 figure range. I can’t wait to see the print ads!

Brad Pitt named the face of Chanel No. 5!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making tons of money as the faces of fashion and beauty campaigns. It was reported last year that Louis Vuitton paid Angelina Jolie millions to be the face of their “Core Values” campaign. Among other contracts, she is one busy woman! Now we learn that her fiance, Brad Pitt, is also getting into the beauty biz.

E! News reports that Brad has been named the face of Chanel No. 5, which is a woman’s perfume!

Yes, it’s a scent for a woman, but if ever there was a man pretty enough to render that particular point moot, it’s Brad Pitt.

Proving yet again that his musky appeal knows no bounds, E! News has exclusively learned that Angelina Jolie’s better half has signed on as the new face of Chanel’s signature No. 5 scent.

Reps for neither Pitt nor the perfume house have commented on the new partnership, but a source tells E! News that the actor will be shooting his firstperfume ad in London sometime this week (the superstar family has set up their most recent homestead in the UK).

And for his endorsement troubles, Pitt will be bringing home some serious bacon for the Jolie-Pitt clan, with his paycheck for the spot somewhere in the seven-figures. The Chanel No. 5 ad will be released overseas sometime later this year. Makes scents to us.

All I have to say is – let’s see the ads!

T Exclusive Video – A Polished Look by Chanel

When Peter Philips, Chanel’s creative director for makeup, wanted to showcase the latest collection of Chanel nail polish on film, he called upon Ruth Hogben, a London filmmaker known for her work with Gareth Pugh and Louis Vuitton. The inspiration to use sign language came shortly after.

In this video, the Dutch model Saskia De Brauw manually conveys some of Coco Chanel’s most famous quotes; while her hands do the talking, her fingernails show off an array of chic Chanel lacquers.

Katharine McPhee’s stunning makeup from last night’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center”

I watched “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” last night on NBC, and one thing that stood out to me (more than the strange music video starring Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey) was Katharine McPhee’s STUNNING makeup. Once I saw it – I knew I HAD to have it.  She wore this gorgeous nude color eyeshadow that glittered, and it looked so glamorous. Not cheap looking at all! She topped the eye shadow with a thick black eye liner, and the look was beyond gorgeous.

I knew I had to figure out what she was wearing – so I took to Twitter – and it looks like I’m not the only one who was asking! Her top tweet read: “4 those who asked abt my eye shadow last nt…my makeup artist explains…”@Beau_Nelson: She’s got pretty sparkly eyes courtesy of@CHANEL

Her makeup artist continued; “She also has pretty matte rose lips by @JoeFreshNY and black liquid liner by @COVERGIRL. And can we talk about her beautiful skin? @shuuemura nobara stick! My favorite! Shimmery love lust blush from @tomford finishes the look.”

I went digging further and found that Katharine is wearing Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme. It is GORGEOUS. I’m ordering mine now, have to have it.

This intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow offers true versatility. An innovative gel texture that is both soft and cushiony allows it to be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner. Includes a specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula.

Go get it yourself! $36
