When Chanel taps supermodel Gisele Bündchen and director Baz Luhrmann for a short film – well, we obviously perk up. The result is a visual spectacle to celebrate the house’s iconic Chanel No. 5 perfume, which the label made sure to hype up with a 15-second teaser clip, a star-studded dinner, and its first-ever Instagram posts.
As a moody rendition of “You’re the One That I Want” plays, the film opens with a fresh-faced Gisele on an absurdly chic Chanel surfboard. We then get a peek at her handsome counterpart, Michiel Huisman of Game of Thrones fame, as he exits their swanky beachside home. After her ocean dip, Gisele (wearing Chanel and a spritz of No. 5) reunites with the object of her affection in a scenic concert hall.
In typical Baz Luhrmann style, the three minutes are full of color and sweeping landscapes – and I’m left wishing this were a full-length production.
