See Gisele’s rump act in this Chanel No5 ad
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Media features here.
Firstly, bottoms are created, not made. No amount of Atkins, 5:2, Slimming World or any of that diet guff would ever induce the Muddy posterior to shrink, pert and buff like the Gisele golden peach of an arse in this ad. (So that’s alright then, I’ll have that biscuit thanks.)
Secondly, let’s not make the mistake that all models can act. Although Gisele has an acting CV, her expression while surfing is priceless. PRICELESS I tell you! There are mullets less stunned than the lovely Brazilian super as she stands serenely on the top of a 40 foot wave. And there are toddlers who will decipher what it written on the front of the envelope in the atrium of her glass-fronted beach-front house faster than our Brazilian brainbox. I know that Muddy not-so-secret Extra Marital Sex Pass candidate Jamie Dorman (oh come on, we’ve all got them!) has made the leap from supermodel to the screen, but he is the exception, not the rule.
And finally, an ad like this just begs the question – why with a budget into the millions can perfume brands not make their advertising more clever, subversive and entertaining? What’s that you say – am I writing this half cut and don’t know what I’m talking about? (er, well, it is past 1.30pm – what do you expect??). You decide!
