Mid-Week Inspiration: Chanel's Train de Nuit

The new advertisement/mini film for Chanel No. 5, titled Train de Nuit, has been released and it's beautiful. Starring Audrey Tautou as the new face for the perfume, and directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet the film takes us for a ride on an Orient Express over night train from Paris to Istanbul. The train conjures up past images but the setting is 2009. Simply dressed, Audrey is beautiful, but I wish that the clothing was as mysterious as the film. It is Chanel, afterall! But I suppose the point is more the allure of the wonderful scent of Chanel No. 5 and the film is still a wonderful inspiration. Like most French films, emotions are relayed without words and this two and half minute film is no exception. Audrey Tautou and Jean-Pierre Jeunet have reunited since filming Amelie to create this and there are some great interviews and behind the scenes footage to be seen as well. Don't delay, go to now to see the film and more!
