She may have just wrapped a Baz Luhrmann–directed Chanel No. 5 film, but Gisele Bündchen isn’t stopping there. She’s going for the whole campaign.

Gisele Chanel Campaign

The French luxury house released the full set of images for its Spring/Summer 2015 campaign, starring none other than the Brazilian supermodel. Shot in black and white, Gisele poses barefoot in front of recognizable Parisian spots like the city’s infamous “love lock” bridges and various locations overlooking the Seine River.

The images definitely evoke a romantic midnight-in-Paris vibe, but noticeably missing from the pictures? A handsome suitor (and a pair of coveted Chanel shoes).

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.

Gisele Bündchen is used to being scrutinized – she is a model after all. And her newest gig in Under Armour’s “I Will What I Want” campaign is no exception. Critics took issue with Gisele starring in the ads, as she is the first non-professional athlete tapped by the activewear label. But Under Armour is one step ahead of them.

In the campaign’s video, the Brazilian supermodel shows off her kickboxing skills as comments (both good and bad) flash behind her. “Gisele knows what it means to live under the microscope, amongst the noise of contradicting opinions. But will beats noise,” the brand states. Using negative comments as fuel, Gisele punches and kicks that hanging sandbag like a champ. As for her “haters”? I’m sure they’ve been silenced.

Kate Moss for ELEVEN PARIS. Cara Delevingne for Burberry. Gisele Bündchen for Sonia Rykiel. Along with impeccably cozy style, this fall’s fashion models are sporting a parade of toothy grins – a welcome departure from the stoic, cold stares perpetuated by the 90s heroin-chic movement.

Perhaps it has something to do with Pharrell Williams’s insanely catchy tune. Or maybe big-name designers simply want to appear more approachable? Either way, I like this changeup. Bring on the happy.
