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?

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?

Mad, Classy, Men (and Women)

The award-winning series, Mad Men, is coming back in the form of stylish clothes March 1.

Banana Republic is reviving the Mad Men Collection in stores and online, (so you can get your viewing party outfit together) just in time for the fifth season premiere on March 25 (9 p.m. EST on AMC).

Season 4 had ended in 1965, so you will definitely be needing pieces from the collection to watch this great comeback of the hit '60s show.

The clothes are made in conjunction with Banana Republic and the Mad Men Emmy-winning costume designer Janie Bryant so you can rest assured that the clothing will be Mad Men like.

The creative director of Banana Republic, Simon Kneen, tells The Hollywood Reporter that "spring delivers a whole new palette and gave us an excuse to draw from different scenes and wardrobes from the show as inspiration."

The 40 piece collection of menswear and womenswear will consist of bright colors, chic trench coats, dapper separates for men, tailored dresses, and statement accessories like print scarves and leopard print pump heels according to amctv.

According to Fashionista, prices will range for $35 - $355. Not bad for a sure-to-be timeless collection. Grab pieces for spring (and the viewing party, of course) and stay classy!
