Marilyn Monroe, the new face of Chanel No. 5

Fifty-one years after her death, Marilyn Monroe has been named the new face of Chanel’s iconic fragrance, No. 5. The French house released unseen visuals and recordings of an interview the actress gave in April 1960 to Georges Belmont at French Marie Claire, talking about her relationship with Chanel No. 5, delighting new and old fans alike.

“You know, they ask me questions,” she explains in the audio. “Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed ? A pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel No. 5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude’. But it’s the truth!”

Watch the clip below and listen to Marilyn speaking about the iconic fragrance. Now that is an Ad ! Step off, Brad.
