Following the steps of her famous predecessors, French actress Marion Cotillard takes on a new role as the new face of the iconic Chanel No.5 fragrance. With this news, Cotillard joins an impressive legacy of French ambassadors including, Catherine Deneuve (1969), Carole Bouquet (1986), Audrey Tautou (2009) and Rose-Lily Depp (2016). “This is the first time that the most respected French actress in Hollywood is lending her image to a fragrance,” the brand said in a statement.

It isn’t hard to understand why the “La Vie en Rose” actress will serve as the iconic scent’s new ambassador. Described by the brand as “the perfect incarnation of French natural beauty,” with “an elegance” and “an irresistible je ne sais quoi that’s all her own,” she is bringing her elegance to the image of the iconic N°5 fragrance.

Marion Cotillard is the new face of Chanel No.5

Faithful to the CHANEL House since the beginning of her career, she has walked the red carpet in CHANEL for the Jean-Pierre Jeunet film A Very Long Engagement in 2004 and Olivier Dahan’s La Vie en rose in 2008.

Marion Cotillard moved the entire world with her performance as Édith Piaf, winning the Oscar, the César, the Golden Globe, and the BAFTA Award for Best Actress. This international acclaim gave her the opportunity to work with the most renowned directors —such as Jacques Audiard, James Gray, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott, Steven Soderbergh, and Leos Carax— while ardently supporting young artistic talents and taking risks to champion debut feature films.

Authentic, committed and generous, Marion Cotillard takes her unique perspective from film to film, creating an exceptional destiny as a free woman.

The new campaign will be unveiled later on this year.
