There’s more from Chanel: after the Brad Pitt disaster, the brand has now roped in another super-hot celeb for its advertising campaign. This time it’s Gisele Bündchen, fronting the Les Beiges de Chanel collection. Cost to company? Approximately $4 million for 6 months. Well, one hopes this one is worth it!
