Gisele Bündchen told The Sunday Times Magazine that the lifestyle portrayed in Chanel No. 5 ads — like the one she’s in that was released last week — can seem “unattainable.”
To see what she was talking about, we watched a few Chanel No. 5 ads, and we learned how much cooler our lives would be, if only we bought and wore this fragrance.
The One That I Want — The Film
This is the ad Bündchen is referring to when she says Chanel No. 5 ads can seem very glamorous, distant and unattainable. What is she talking about? Don’t we all look like that when we emerge, sans makeup, from the water? And what woman who has had a child doesn’t look like that when emerging from her bodysuit? Maybe Bündchen is talking about the over-the-top photo shoot, the sports car, the hot husband, the designer gown and the elaborate settings. Yeah, maybe she has a point. But hey, we could have all of that, too, if we would just buy and wear Chanel No. 5. It’s completely attainable.
Coco Mademoiselle: The Film
Here again, Keira Knightley shows us how amazing we can look with no makeup when we first get up in the morning, if we’d just break down and wear Chanel No. 5. We’d also look amazing in a skintight motorcycle suit, and the only traffic surrounding us would be attractive men who find us incredibly desirable. How is that unattainable? After turning around dramatically in the elevator, we, too, could have a steamy photo session with a young, gorgeous photographer and then sneak out when he locks the door because we’re cool and cheeky like that.

Um, excuse me. Hold everything. We could be making out with the hunk from Love Actually if we wore Chanel No. 5? Well, now we’re listening. Now you have our attention. Also, we really want one of those sexy, down-the-back Chanel No. 5 necklaces. Do we get one of those if we purchase Chanel No. 5, too? We don’t want to be greedy. The hot guy will do, but that necklace is all kinds of fabulous.
There You Are, Chanel No. 5 Part 1
Wherever Brad Pitt is, there we are? How is his new bride Angelina Jolie going to feel about that? This perfume is so powerful, it can probably resolve any complications that may arise from Pitt wanting to get with us because we’re wearing Chanel No. 5. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go purchase the biggest bottle of Chanel No. 5 we can find and fill the tub with it. That s*** is pure magic.
