Even now her iconic curls, red pout and hourglass curves continue to influence the fashion and beauty universe so it's no wonder Chanel wanted to bring her back for their Chanel No.5 campaign. A month after she was announced as the brand's new face, Marilyn Monroe's comeback has finally arrived and it's like she's never been away.
Chanel's signature scents are never without the glamour, femininity and serious sophistication so it's worked out pretty well that they've got Marilyn Monroe on board for their latest Chanel No.5 campaign.
The fashion house has raided the archives for never seen/heard before footage and recordings of the sizzling style icon and we are a tad excited for her comeback.
If you've ever been to a vintage fancy dress party you'll struggle to get through the night without bumping into a 50s blonde wig, a while halter neck dress and a daring red lip - there's just something about Marilyn Monroe!
The 30 second clip shows a series of vintage clips of the late Miss Monroe, flashing her captivating smile and working her exquisite wardrobe.
The jewels, the white fur stoles, the glitz, the glamour, if you're not left desperate for a bottle of No.5 after this then shame on you.
Narrating the footage is Marilyn herself with her sultry voice and cheeky giggles, you can totally see why the paps would fall at her feet.
She says: "You know, they ask me questions. Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed ? A pyjama top? The bottoms of the pajamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel No. 5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude.’ But it’s the truth!:"
Following in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou and Vanessa Paradis, Marilyn joins a whole host of glamour puss campaign faces for the world's best selling fragrance.
Last year, Brad Pitt was paid a hefty $7 million to be the first male to front the Chanel No.5 campaign but, as much as we love a bearded beauty, Marilyn's our favorite perfume pick. Sorry Brad!
