[Fashion]: Chanel No. 5 - "The One that I Want" (A Fashion Film)

Earlier this month, Chanel premiered the latest fashion short film about its iconic No. 5 fragrance. In this different take on the ordinary fragrance advert, Gisele Bundchen plays the role of the dynamic Chanel woman who tries to find expression for all the aspects of herself - businesswoman, mother, lover.

Though I initially clicked 'play' because Baz Luhrmann was involved (I am still obsessed with his adaptation of The Great Gatsby), what really pulled me in was the soundtrack. As we see Gisele coming in from the surf, spending a few moments with her child, striking a few poses for a camera (with Luhrmann behind the lens, of course), and sharing a loaded moment with a dark stranger, there is a moody and alluring voice slowly warbling: "the power that you're supplying...it's electrifying"


Classically-trained singer-songwriter Lo-Fang covered John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John's much-loved "You're the One that I Want" in a way that is somewhat eerie, but also manages to capture the brooding, sensuous feel of the film.


Spectacular cover versions and dreamy visuals came together to make quite an intriguing fashion short film.

Now, if only I could only get my hands on this fabulous parfum...
