Keira Knightley the new face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle

September 27th, 2007

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley debuts in a new print and film ad campaign for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle, replacing Kate Moss, who has been the face of the fragrance since its creation in 2001.

To mark the switch, pieces of jewelry worn in the ads traveled from Dallas to Bal Harbour, Fla., to the Chanel Waikiki boutique in Honolulu.

Chanel also sent out a delightful press kit for the occasion, of a mirrored music box with a figure of a dancer in red and a teensy weensy flacon of Coco Mademoiselle, both made to swirl on a magnetic dance floor. It was fine entertainment for a person with a short attention span but easily amused. I played with it for some time before deciding to make a video of it on my digital camera, such as it is. Someday I’ll figure out how to make iMovie work here, then watch out Danny Boyle and Paul Thomas Anderson! BWAha-ha-ha HAH! I had a fun talk way back in 2002 with Anderson following the making of his Adam Sandler movie “Punch-Drunk Love,” filmmed partially in Hawaii. You can read that at

Oh, and check back at noon for a special offer from Alliway!
