Do you remember the good old days when fashion companies used, y’know, models to advertise their goods? Not so much anymore.
Chanel especially likes getting celebrity faces, and I sometimes wonder at the choices they make. First they had the eternally irritating Keira Knightley, whose face is constantly in turbo-pout.
And now they’ve gone and replaced her with Hermione! Oh my god. Emma Watson. As Chandler Bing would say, could she be any more annoying? Whereas Keira pouts and preens while contorting her boyish frame into forced poses, Emma keeps her features in an infuriating state of snugness.
Hopefully Emma’s contract won’t stretch to TV commercials too. We definitely do not need to hear Hermione’s over-pronounced consonants in between episodes of Britain’s Next top Model (my love! we meet again tonight!). Mind you nothing can be worse than pop-eyed Nicole Kidman’s acting in the Chanel No.5 advert.
Altogether now … “Drive!“
