Fairy Tale Chanel No. 5 - Red Riding Hood

It's not unusual for advertising to turn to fairy tales for inspiration. The SurLaLune blog has recent posts on two campaigns being run right now: a German Burger King commercial set and the US's own current AT&T's Hansel & Gretel TV commercial. Click on the names to go check them out.

In the meantime, remember this fairy tale fragrance ad?
It still looks trés chic to me...

The model/actress is Estella Warren and the ad you probably remember is actually the second version of Red she played for Chanel No 5. This particular one is stunning and stands the test of time. Plus I never tire of this gorgeous music from "Edward Scissorhands"!

The earlier Estella-Warren-as-Red-Riding-Hood for Chanel is below. Not as lovely as the one above but still worth a peek.
