Well, here's Brad Pitt's highly anticipated debut as the first male face for Chanel N° 5.

This 30-second spot was directed by Joe Wright, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for Atonement (starring Saoirse Ronan, James McAvoy and Keira Knightley). He also directed Pride & Prejudice (starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen -- I adore the flushed-cheek beauty in this film, and Matthew Macfadyen, too), and Anna Karenina (starring Keira Knightley; Matthew Macfadyen's in this one, too).

What do you think?

Update: Now let's also look at the Coco Mademoiselle 2007 commercial and 2011 mini movie Joe Wright did with Keira. I hadn't realized Wright had directed these as well; thanks for the tip, Pri!

I confess I expected something in a similar style with Brad Pitt, although Coco Mademoiselle and Chanel N° 5 have different personalities. Do you have thoughts on these too?
