First Look: Brad Pitt's New Chanel No. 5 Commercial

Brad Pitt's first commercial as the new face of Chanel No. 5 is finally here. Is it sexy or sort of strange?

It went live as the clock struck midnight in Paris.

In the black-and-white 30-second spot, he's looking straight into the camera, delivering lines that seem more fitting spoken to fiancée Angelina Jolie than to a bottle of perfume.

"It’s not a journey, every journey ends and we go on," Pitt says, casually dressed, his hands in his pockets, staring at the camera. "Wherever I go, there you are."

He recites his lines slowly. "My luck, my fate, my fortune," he says. "Chanel No. 5. Inevitable." It's definitely a different look for the brand. In the past, we've seen Nicole Kidman and Vanessa Paradis in ads.

His handsomeness was GONE LONG TIME AGO........he looked dirty.  The older he gets his looked is somewhat dissappering.  Unlike George Clooney even Tom Cruise they maintained their look.  It seemed like he does not care.  OH WELL.....

I think he looks unkempt and the lines he deilvers are silly and make him the object of jokes.  Recently on the Halloween episode of Fashion Police, George Katsiopolis was Brad Pitt and it was hilarious!!

Brad Pitt since he has been with  Anjolena looks nasty---he does not do anything with his hair and I hate the beard thing the men think is sexy!!   It really sucks on most men.   The only man that is groomed well with a beard is SEAN Connery!!!!!!!!!!!!   The rest forget it---does not do anything for them but their ego.   I do not like his commerical for the channel #5---won't make me buy it and I love it.

He looks dirty and disgusting.  If they want a sexy man, how about  Gabriel Macht from "Suits"...now he's a class act!

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
