Audrey Tautou's Newest Role: Face of Chanel
She’s already one of the world’s most accomplished actresses, and now Audrey Tautou is being recognized as one of it’s most beautiful. Chanel has just announced that they’ve chosen the French star to be the face of their classic No. 5 fragrance in 2009, following in the footsteps of the brand’s current ambassador Nicole Kidman. And just as Kidman’s renown short film for the fragrance was directed by her Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrman, Tautou’s new role also will tap into her cinematic past. Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who directed the actress in the acclaimed films Amelie and The Long Engagement, will direct the star in a short movie for the campaign, which we’re sure will be just as chic as Kidman’s — with a touch of Parisian flair.
