Watch: Baz Luhrmann Chanel No. 5 Campaign Takes Gatsby Into the 21st Century

Watch: Baz Luhrmann Chanel No. 5 Campaign Takes Gatsby Into the 21st Century

Chanel brought in Baz Luhrmann to direct the most recent video campaign for its classic No. 5 perfume.

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen is at the center of Luhrmann’s delicious spectacle, which is not-so-subtly reminiscent of his last film “The Great Gatsby” — right down to the near toxic fascination with luxury and nightlife.

And since it’s Luhrmann, certain creative choices are, without a doubt, curious. Especially the decision to use a song from, “Grease” — a film that explicitly focused on middle and working class characters, in contrast with the world of luxury seen in Luhrmann’s Chanel campaign.

Check out the film in its entirety below and decide for yourself.
