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!

Louis Vuitton releasing a fragrance!!

Believe it or not, in a time when everyone and their dog has their own fragrance, Louis Vuitton has yet to jump onto the bandwagon. But that’s all about to change!

More from Elle!

The storied French house has allegedly hired Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, a perfumer whose family has worked in fragrance for almost as long as Vuitton has worked in luggage. Belletrud’s the nose behind a handful of well known scents including Stella McCartney’s eponymous fragrance, Dior’s Addict and Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classic and has, according to WWD, been busy sourcing “rare, almost-extinct flowers” for the Vuitton perfume.

Though a creative director of a brand as massive as Vuitton may not have much to do with whatever signature scent blooms from the label, they are associated with the look of the perfume and given the two very different people who may or may not be at the head of the house within six months—Marc Jacobs or, as rumored, Phoebe Philo if Marc goes to Dior—we can’t help but picture two opposing bottles, boxes and celebratory launches.

Can’t wait to smell it!

Angelina Jolie’s 10 minute Louis Vuitton commercial released!

Angelina Jolie is the new face of Louis Vuitton. A couple months ago we saw her print ad, and here we have the “commercial” which is a whopping 10 minutes long.

In the video she talks about Cambodia, and elephants and land mines. And I’m really struggling to figure out what this has to do with Louis Vuitton. Maybe they just figured they wanted her to talk a lot – so they gave her a subject she’s passionate about? They are, after all, paying her $10 million for the campaign, they need to make it worth their while!

This video is quite strange…you’ve been warned.


Angelina Jolie lands $10 million modeling contract with Louis Vuitton!

We haven’t seen Angeline Jolie as a model in a while. Her last modeling campaign was for the clothing line St. John. Jolie modeled for the label for 3 years. She’s also been the face of Japanese beauty comapny Shiseido.

Those are both relatively small brands – compared to the new brand she just landed, Louis Vuitton!

Angelina Jolie just bagged a lucrative endorsement deal. E! News has learned exclusively that Jolie is set to be the face of an upcoming worldwide ad campaign for designer Louis Vuitton. The print-only campaign, which is scheduled to launch this summer, will be marketed globally…

A source familiar with the deal between Jolie and the French fashion behemoth tells E! News that the actress will get paid “close to $10 million” for her high-end endorsement deal, believed to be the most lucrative of her career.

We hear that Annie Leibowitz will do the photo-snapping honors within the next couple of weeks.

A rep for Louis Vuitton had no comment. Jolie’s publicist did not return calls seeking comment.

Jolie, who last year ended a long-term endorsement deal with St. John and recently launched a jewelry line, has long been a fan of the brand, often sporting its handbags in public.

Past celeb endorsers of L.V. have included Jennifer Lopez and Madonna.
