Marilyn Monroe Tapped as Face of Chanel No. 5: In her 1952 Life magazine interview, Marilyn Monroe famously said “What do I wear in bed? Why Chanel No. 5, of course.” Now, more than 50 years after her death, the actress has been tapped as the fragrance's new face. The print and television ads will feature Monroe posing with a bottle of the frangrance in a photograph taken by Ed Feingersh in 1955. Speaking of its new cover star, Chanel described the late-actress as “the most desirable woman of the 20th century.” [Elle UK]
