Martin Scorsese shot an ad for Chanel’s new fragrance, Bleu de Chanel, and I could not help but notice the beautiful man in the commercial. So who is he? His name is Gaspard Ulliel, and he’s a french film actor. His most notable role is A Very Long Engagement, for which he received a Cesar Award for Most Promising Actor. The commercial is predictably fantastic, given that it’s directed by Scorsese. I have to give Chanel credit for choosing Scorsese though. Almost every commercial they’ve released has been brilliantly put together, which leads me to believe they have very talented creative people calling the shots. To show you what I mean, I’ve attached some of my favorite Chanel commercials below. Enjoy!
