Brad, the Beautiful

 

Hiya Poutlings

We didn’t cover the story on our Facebook page (to my knowledge) but it was announced in May that:

Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5.

Brad Pitt is the first man to represent the famous perfume, and I just had one question : Will he wear nothing but a few spritzes of the alehyde, bergamot, jasmine, rose and ylang-ylang eau to sleep at night next to Angie, a la Marilyn “naked, except for a few drops” Monroe?

While it may seem odd to Brad Putt serve as a brand ambassodor duties for a perfume that typically recruits starlets like Catherine Deneuve, Ali MacGraw, Nicole Kidman, and most recently Audrey Tatou for that honour, I get it : No. 5 is an icon, and so is Brad Pitt… easy enough.

To cement that icon status and in honour of Brad Pitt’s Joe Wright ad for the perfume which debuts tomorrow, I’ve rounded up some of Brad, father of six most memorable beauty moments – both the good and questionable – to help further explain why putting the blondie boy wonder’s mug next to that classic, glass square bottle will likely distract, er, I mean, compel a great many women to indulge in a bit of spritzing.

1988

Aw, look how young he is, those dimples are sweet. A fresh faced Brad Pitt is the good boy version of Johnny Depp circa the late eighties 21 Jump Street – which shouldn’t be that suprising considering Brad had a guest spot on the show that same year. It was one of his first real parts after a few uncredited gems like “guy at beach with drink” in the 1987 version of the Hulk.

1992

Haha, sorry, I cannot help but look at this picture and laugh. You have got to love Juliette Lewis for proving that there is a fact in way to overshadow Brad Pitt’s attention hoarding handsomeness on the red carpet. Ot’s called skull-gripping cornrows. That little trick made sure no one noticed his ill-advised facial hair and while we’re at it, tuxedo accessories.

1993

Fresh off the success of a River Runs Through It, True Romance and Kalifornia, Brad debuts a serious surfer boy look : long golden locks, a sun-duppled complexion and that errant chin hair, clearly forgotten in the rush to get to the beach.

1994

The legends of the fall.

1994

After some astounding screen time spent playing Tristan Ludlow in Legends, this happened. A straggly, Cobain-esque bleached bonde mop offset by a goatee. Remember the nineties? ha ha ha

1997

When Brad met Gwyneth. Apparently, many females made a mad dash to the hair salon to request Paltow’s Sliding Doors chop – and Brad joined in on the bandwagon and got one too. Not only did their haircuts match, so did their precisely placed golden highlights… Hands down this has to be the best moments in visual couple-morphing, ever.

1999

Brad’s transformation into his next realtionship with Jennifer Aniston did not involve mimicking her hairstyle. Jennifer’s SoCalifornia roots did manage to rub off, though, whith his spiky cut and that goatee once again.

2004

It took Brad long, but he got there,, the shorter buzz cut does wonders for focussing even more attention to his blue eyes, and the most major development here is that the goatee has disappered, for now at least.

2007

A slick Brill-creamed comb over, clean-shaven face and a beautiful lady on his arm = wining.

2012

A slick Brill-creamed comb over, clean-shaven face and a beautiful lady on his arm = wining.

You’re welcome.

  1. I like brad. In actual fact he acts better than he looks. Don’t you think? Oh well. I love the smell of Chanel, but brad won’t cause me to go buy an extra bottle.
