UNEARTHED MARILYN



 






“What do you wear to bed? A pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas?
A nightgown?” So I said, ‘CHANEL N°5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude.’ But it’s the truth!”

– Marilyn Monroe –




A recent discovery unearthed from Chanel’s archives has produced a sound clip never heard before of Marie Claire editor-in-chief Georges Belmont interviewing Marilyn Monroe in 1960 for her film “Let’s Make Love”
where the Hollywood siren famously revealed in her iconic breathless voice that all she wears to bed is:

CHANEL No. 5!

 



Chanel, under the aegis of Kaiser Karl, has acquired the recording which will be part of the brand’s advert campaign this Christmas.

Fifty-odd years after Ed Feingersh took the black-and-white shots, the mystique and legacy of Marilyn still lives on thanks to this magical, posthumous clip.

A-Gent of Style particularly liked the clever montage with its great build-up and suspense. Groovy tune too.

Bon week-end!











MADEMOISELLE C



 

   

After ten years at the helm of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfield, who resigned her editorship in January 2011, is the star of her very own documentary entitled Mademoiselle C, made by the same production team as The September Issue.




One of fashion’s most influential movers with an inimitable style – part punk, part provocatrice, wearing lashings of black Kohl eyeliner and Alaïa skintight leather – gives a rare inside glimpse into her world and chronicles her transition from Vogue to the launch of her new magazine “CR Fashion Book”. The chic 58-year-old grandmother and stylist features her inner circle of friends including Donatella Versace, Tom Ford, Karl Lagerfeld, Mario Testino, Riccardo Tisci, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Alexander Wang.

The film is now out on DVD. Perfect night in with ‘Galfriends’ and cocktails.









Have a great weekend, A-Gentees.



SI



 

If you haven’t seen yet Cate Blanchett’s stellar performance in Woody Allen’s new movie Blue Jasmine, here’s a aperçu of an impressive gamut of facets the antipodean actress can achieve in 1min01 in Giorgio Armani’s ravishing ‘film’ for his new perfume Si. Que bella!

 

Have a lovely weekend.
