It’s been nearly a year since French film star Audrey Tautou filled the shoes of Nicole Kidman as the face of Chanel No 5. And with her film Coco Before Chanel slated to debut on September 25th and a new print campaign for the fragrance about to launch, the actress is talking how playing Coco Chanel brought her new perspective to her role as the face of the fragrance — and sharing her latest Chanel No 5 ads. “The feature film enabled me to learn a lot more about Coco Chanel,” Audrey says of playing the style icon. “She was an innovator, ahead of her era. The fact that she created a fragrance in the 1920s that could just as easily have been created yesterday reflects the standard of excellence that applied to everything she did in her life.” She continues, “By playing Coco and getting to know her, I understood, even more, just how unique N°5 really is.” Tell us: What do you think of Audrey’s new images for Chanel No 5? Will you see Coco Before Chanel when it hits theaters next week?

Wow, so pretty! She’s such a lovely, translucently beautiful actress.

She looks so pretty. However I always thought that Chanel No.5 just smelled of soap.. is it just me? (And is it blasphemy to say that?)

Now I can see why daughter wanted to get her hair cut like Ms. Tautou’s. Petite brunettes with big brown eyes, and that glorious skin. She looks like someone who would’ve been on the cover of a box of chocolates 100 years ago — a classic beauty.

A true beauty and a great photo!

Audrey is perfect; the images are stunning. What I would love most to know — where did they get that stunning dress that so beautifully compliments the simple elegance of the fragrance?!
