Audrey Tautou Chanel Sailor Pants For Perfume Advertisement

Neatly illustrating the previous post with Kirsten Dunst donning Chanel inspired sailor pants as part of her 1920s pyjama beachwear in The Cats Meow is elegant French actress Audrey Tautou wearing the real deal.

In this new advertisement for Coco Chanel’s now 84 year old perfume Chanel No.5 directed by Amélie’s Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Audrey Tautou slips on a stylish pair of black silk-satin sailor pants coupled with black spaghetti straps fitted bodice for just a few seconds of screen-time.

The whole ad is filled with stunning Chanel creations (now under the creative leadership of Karl Lagerfeld) and is worth watching over and over again for this very reason. In fact Tautou also wears a pair of high-waisted day slacks early on, but the flowing black silk-satins have a more classic bent.

Whether you like the actual perfume or not (it can smell a bit like soap), you cannot deny the presentation is faultless.

Watch the advertisment HERE.

    I love them soooo much…my favourite advert of all time. I went out and bought myself a jumpsuit which has the same effect as this outfit and even if i say so myself….IT LOOKS AMAZING!

      Hi, I have been desperately trying to find the outfit worn by Audrey in this advert, where can I find that outfit or a jumpsuit that has the same effect (as referred to by Georgia?), Thank you in advance for your assistance.

      Hi Siobhan. I do get a lot of requests like this, but I’m afraid there are just not enough hours in the day to answer them (this blog, of course, is unpaid). Although, if anyone wants to pay me to hunt around for outfits in movies I might be able to!!

    I would love to know where Georgia brought her pant suit from, many thanks. Sonia
