Chanel No 5 is consistently the world's best-selling perfume, and they've been synonymous with Marilyn Monroe ever since she famouly said that the fragrance was the "only thing" she wore to bed. But the brand is looking toward the future, and they've hired a somewhat unlikely new spokesmodel: Brad Pitt.
While it's nothing new for actors to front fragrance campaigns, they're usually restricted to the men's section: Orlando Bloom for Hugo Boss or Clive Owen for Bulgari, for example.
