Just like in every other business, fashion is based on relationships. Emma Stone and Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore, for instance, are associated with Lanvin. They have friendships with the label's designer, Alber Elbaz, and often wear the brand on the red carpet. Same with Angelina Jolie and Versace (and lately, with Elie Saab and Jenny Packham). But all of that could change now that Brad Pitt's been named the new face of famed perfume Chanel No. 5.
Pitt is the first man ever to be the face of the women's scent, which has featured Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Paradis, Audrey Tatou, Ali MacGraw and Lauren Hutton in the history of its ad campaigns. (Other actresses, like Keira Knightley, have done campaigns for Mademoiselle and for Chanel eyewear.)
While we've NEVER seen Jolie wear anything by Chanel, since her allegiances lie elsewhere, we're wondering -- since Pitt is shooting his first Chanel No. 5 ad in London this week - whether Chanel reps will slip him a few Cannes gowns for his fiance. Plus, Chanel will have a suite at Cannes that will have plenty of new couture for Jolie to choose from. We're placing a bet on this one -- she's prime to add Chanel to her fashion repertoire. It's only a matter of time!
