Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5 and there has been a lot of buzz over the respective ads as Pitt's the first male to represent the iconic brand's No. 5 scent.
Joining Marilyn Monroe, Nicole Kidman and Keira Knightley, as a spokesperson, Pitt brings an air of mystery and smolder to the black and white commercials. "It's not a journey. Every journey ends, but we go on," Pitt says in a voice-over as a nature scene is depicted on screen with a pretty woman, then a city scene. "The world turns, and we turn with it. Plans disappear, dreams take over."
Taking home a rumored paycheck of over six-million dollars for the ads, Brad Pitt, at 48, shows us "sexy" has no boundaries. With over 4-million hits on you-tube, his Chanel ad has both the fashion set and the world at large taking notice. "But wherever I go, there you are," he says. "My luck, my fate, my fortune. Chanel No. 5, inevitable."
Some say that George Clooney would have made a better choice. What do you think?! Is there ever such a thing as too much Brad Pitt?

Angelina Jolie? Julia Roberts? Jennifer Lawrence? What do all these A-list actresses have in common?
None of these ladies are highest paid actress in Hollywood.
Who is you ask?
Well that would be none other than Twilight’s leading lady – Kristen Stewart.
Forbes reports that between May 2011 and May 2012 the starlet earned a whooping 34.5 million dollars. At 22 Kristen Stewart is the youngest woman on the list, the next youngest is Kristen Wigg at 38.
Glamour has announced their best dressed women of 2012 including 50 A-listers, from socialites, to musicians, to actresses and models. All were handpicked off of the fashion-forward apple tree and given a thumbs up for the attire they have sported so far this year. Some of the women are more obvious choices like Angelina Jolie and Kate Moss; however, Glamour also chose peeps that have made some questionable fashion choices in the public eye. We here at Glam Damn It have a few we’d like to applaud, and other’s that, well, we just keep getting second-hand embarrassment for- as far as their fashion sense goes!
We love Chelsea Handler. How could you not? Her deadpan sense of humor, brutal honesty, and couldn't-give-a-sh*t-what-you-think-attitude are just some of her endearing qualities. Sure, she's famous and rich and ridiculously successful, but most of all she's real. In Hollywood, that's hard to come by.
In her latest interview with MORE magazine, Chelsea reveals she rekindled her relationship (yay!) with hotelier Andre Balazs in February after splitting last year. She tells MORE, "My boyfriend, André...We just got back together literally yesterday. We had dated for nine months, a long-distance relationship with all the stresses and traveling and running around. It wasn’t a real life; we weren’t living together." She elaborates, “So, André came to me yesterday and said, ‘I think we have to try to make this work again.’ And I agreed because we’re still madly in love, and he has done a lot of the things I’ve asked him to, and I’ve done a lot of the stuff he’s asked me to. It’s just a matter of understanding each other better — getting to know what the other person’s needs are and not basing all your behavior on your own desire.”
She also drops a few bombs on everyone's favorite ice queen, Angelina Jolie, "You just know as a woman, when you see another woman, if that's a woman you can trust," said Handler, referring to Jolie as the "opposite of a girl's girl," and not "someone I would have a close friendship with." Handler, who is famously close with Jennifer Aniston had previously called Jolie a "home-wrecker" and has since refused to apologize for it. (Gotta love how Chelsea sticks to her guns though!)
The Middle East situation may remain unresolved but this week the unthinkable had happened. After years of unwed bliss, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have suddenly announced they’re engaged to be married.
“Yes, it’s confirmed,” Cynthia Pett-Dante, Pitt’s manager, told USA Today. “It is a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.”
Six kids later, Brad has finally decided to put a ring on it. Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop confirmed that he helped Brad, 48, design a custom diamond engagement ring for Angelina, 36.
Another power couple might be walking down the aisle in the future.....
Brad Pitt spoke to The Hollywood Reporter, “We'd actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren't going to do it till everyone can. But I don't think we'll be able to hold out.”
He and long-time partner Angelina Jolie have held out long enough, so they definitely deserve to do this for themselves. "It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment."
No matter the occasion, red carpets, celebrities, and paparazzi never fails to bring us fabulous fashion we can revel in for days! The evening captured a theme of "classic elegance," says Nicole Richie, celebrity mentor on the upcoming series Fashion Star and famous boho beauty. Shining, shimmering, and showing some skin our favorite Hollywood bombshells lit up the event. Here are our nominees for Unparalleled Style in Best Golden Globe Fashion.
Lea Michele looked fabulous in this silver and sheer Marchesa gown. All of that choreographed dancing and singing has completely paid off in the form of an amazing body! To offset the elaborately embroidered design, Lea kept it simple with a classic updo, understated makeup (smokey eye, nude lip), and a bright emerald green cocktail ring.
Leave it to Hollywood's most powerful pair to show 'em how it's done.
Angelina Jolie and long-time partner Brad Pitt have donated a nice chunk o' change to Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid, $340,000 to be exact, to provide relief in Somalia. Hopefully, their selfless act of generosity will be a huge help. The organization has a goal to curb the worst drought and resulting famine in the country for more than 60 years.
According to the United Nation, the services of the HIJRA could potentially help an estimated 750,000 Somalis from starvation death. To learn more about the organization, visit Hijra.or.ke.
Join the Chicago History Museum for a truly amazing exhibit, featuring 15 iconic designs from the father of American couture, Charles James. When we think couture, we automatically think Charles James. Nearly forty years after his death in 1978, his masterpieces remain timeless in the fashion world. Celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Marisa Tomei have chosen James’ show stopping gowns to walk the red carpet for an outfit to remember. James has been described as one of the greatest couturiers of his time because of his ability to balance the intuition of an artist with the precise technical skill of an engineer.
