The New Chanel N°5 is just one of a kind. Starring top model Gisele Bündchen & Game of Thrones actor Michiel Huisman is has to be the most iconic commercial of all times.In honor of the release Chanel held a “little” dinner where the commercial was officially launched. Only the happy few where invited to the dinner party in New York. The commercial is directed by the Australian director Baz Luhrmann (famous from Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby)It was the second such cherry for Luhrmann, who took on the same role 11 years ago for a $42 million, 180-second Chanel film starring Nicole Kidman.For that reveal, he’d turned a Chelsea event space into a cabaret-style venue (velvet curtains, brass railings, ruched wall fabrics) reminiscent of the Moulin Rouge. Karlie Kloss, for one, didn’t rule out the possibility of a burlesque act.In the end it was merely the screening, followed by a performance by Lo-Fang, whose sultry cover of “You’re the One That I Want” from Grease helped set the film’s erotic tone.As Bündchen made the rounds—wearing No. 5, naturellement—Patrick Demarchelier settled in next to Lily Donaldson .From now on we just have to do it with backstage videos and previews, but tomorrow the commercial will be released worldwide !
