Tip of the hat to Keira Knightley


True story: Last night a woman we know ripped this ad out of Oprah magazine, saying she found it offensive. Geez. One wonders what the marketers of Chanel parfum were thinking by dressing Keira Knightley of Pirates Caribbean fame in only a top hat and lap drape. Men so inclined will certainly notice Keira more than the perfume. Women so inclined will turn the page, thinking, oh, how obvious. How does sex sell in this situation?

Chanel announced back in April 2006 that Ms. Knightley would succeed Kate Moss as the new face of its Coco Mademoiselle fragrance. Coco Mademoiselle. Pop quiz, guys looking at the above photo. What was that product name again?
