“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” — Coco Chanel

After much anticipation, Brad Pitt debuts as the new face of Chanel N°5. The 48-year-old actor follows in the footsteps of Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard and Audrey Tautou in the new clip that shows the star riffing off an ode inspired by the label’s iconic scent. Husband to Angelina Jolie and father of six, Pitt describes his new role as simply groundbreaking (to the tune of a reportedly seven-figure sum): “What’s important to remember about Chanel N°5 is how revolutionary this fragrance is; when it was introduced, it broke all the rules. That’s what I see being the appeal of this campaign; it goes beyond the abstract of emotion or beauty to evoke what is timeless: a woman’s spirit.”
