Chanel Superwoman

A contemporary Gabrielle, clad in a skin-tight camel catsuit, rides a motorcycle like a bad boy,

wasting no time zipping from Place Vendôme to Place de la Concorde

on her Ducati from the 70s and breaking hearts along her way.

Keira Knightley stars as the Chanel Superwoman,

a modern day Coco Chanel whose mystery, daring and rebelliousness are at the heart of her charm,

in the new mini-movie’ advert for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance.

She is a daredevil model attending a photoshoot that turns into a teasing romance.

She wakes up in nothing but Coco Mademoiselle perfume,

before zipping-up her beige catsuit and

heading off on a vintage motorcycle for some racy driving around the streets of Paris.

Arriving at a studio, with a replica of the legendary mirrored staircase at Coco Chanel’s Rue Cambon apartment, she is greeted by a very handsome photographer, Alberto Ammann. The pair get down to the business of capturing Keira’s ravishing natural beauty, she’s unzipping her catsuit and with one devastatingly sexy look, teling him it’s now a ‘closed set’.

For the ending of smouldering Keira Knightley motorbike escapade to obtain the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance…

Chanel’s newest short-film/commercial for their perfume Coco Mademoiselle was directed by Joe Wright {Pride & Prejudice and Atonement}, captured by Mario Testino, production / set design, Sarah Greenwood and accompanied by Joss Stone’s version of ‘It’s a man’s world’.

Behind the scenes with Keira Knightley as Coco Mademoiselle

“For me, Gabrielle Chanel is an icon and there was an incredible power emanating from all the photos of her,” states Knightley. “When I began to delve into her history more closely, I was obviously fascinated by her immense talent as a designer, but more than that, by her singular background.”

Director Joe Wright discusses what influenced him as he made this beautiful commercial about the Chanel fragrance. Keira Knightley talks about being the star of the latest Chanel advertising film and the face of Coco Mademoiselle.

In April 2006, Knightley joined the legendary league of women who have represented CHANEL in global advertising campaigns. Her elegance, beauty and modernity are some of her qualities that parallel the iconic faces featured in the CHANEL fragrance campaigns, including Nicole Kidman, Ali McGraw, Catherine Deneuve and Audrey Tautou for N°5, Vanessa Paradis for Coco and Anna Mouglalis for Allure Sensuelle.

      I prefer the 2006 by far. It is much more magic than the new one.
