Brad Pitt: The Face of Chanel No. 5

Brad Pitt has proved the attractiveness of his face as he will be the face of Chanel's classic woman's perfume, Chanel No. 5.

Chanel tweeted today that the 48-year-old actor and dad would star as the face of the perfume, according to Fashionista.com.

The campaign is set to shoot in London this week, according to The Huffington Post.

Joining Nicole Kidman and Marilyn Monroe, Pitt will be the first male face of the couture house's most famous fragrance.

The Chanel No. 5 will be released sometime in the fall.

But of all fresh faces, why Pitt for the face of the most classic woman's scent from an iconic fashion house? What do you think?

Saturday Faves: The Perfect Spring Dress

If you're a college student like me, you know how amazing you feel when you slip on a dress in the morning. It's comfortable and you instantly look cute while wearing one article of clothing. What more could you want for a sunny, busy day?

My favorite spring dress is one that incorporates color - because spring is about being colorful - and fits perfectly because if it doesn't fit well, you don't feel good in it.

So my favorite dress of the moment is this cutout dress from Urban Outfitters.

The cutouts aren't drastic enough so that you can wear this dress to class or on a night out. The blue and red colors are also perfect for brightening anyone's day.

Pair the dress with a cardigan, like this one from H&M, for those mornings when it's a little chilly out. Slip on your favorite pair of flats, wedges, or sandals, and you're good to go for the rest of the day.

What would you pair with this dress?

Marc Jacobs Working On Makeup Line

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs already has a fragrance line under his belt, in addition to his clothing, handbag, and accessory collections, but he's branching out into makeup territory.

The line is in its very early stages as Jacobs is working with Sephora to define "what Marc Jacobs cosmetics will be," WWD reports.

No official launch date for the line has been set.

"I love the opportunity, wherever there is one, to adorn, to decorate, to scent, to dress. That's what fashion's all about. It's not necessary, it's something you want -- it's a fancy and a whim," Jacobs told WWD.

With Marc Jacobs' creative genius encapsulated in makeup, I can only imagine what products -- from the colors used and the packaging designed -- Jacobs will create. Are you looking forward to his cosmetic line?

Current Obsession: Color Blocking

Spring is full of color and this season's trends are amazing. One that I love a little bit more than the others currently? Color blocking. Specifically bold pinks and oranges together. Nothing else makes for a better combination and it's completely perfect for spring in that it adds that pop of color everyone enjoys.

So when I came across this amazing Marc by Marc Jacobs Satchel on Pinterest, I lovingly sighed at the sight of it.

 

Just thought I would share with my lovely readers who love a great color combination. Find the bag online here and check out the Marc Jacobs Pinterest to find more to swoon about.
