By now it's a well-known fact that Marilyn Monroe had a love for Chanel No. 5. Now, over 50 years after her death, the brand has unearthed audio and images for an all-new advertising campaign. Using the unheard recording from her 1960 interview with Marie Claire, Chanel has created a montage of the actress, which will begin airing in television spots this month. In addition to her voice, the campaign will include classic images of the blond beauty dug up from the archives. Marilyn Monroe and Chanel No. 5? Classic beauty doesn't get any better than that.

The Hollywood darling has captured our eye with her polished-cool je ne sais quoi and an enviable wardrobe that includes brands like Chanel, Jason Wu, and 3.1 Phillip Lim. But it's not just about high-fashion brands; the actress also favors cheap and chic retailers like Urban Outfitters and Topshop. Slip on the stripes, crop tops, and fedoras with our Diane-inspired editors' picks.
Stress comes in many forms and can really wreak havoc on your skin, but Chanel is getting to the bottom of it all with its video series: "In Conversation With Dermatologist Amy Wechsler: The Mind/Body Connection." Dr. Wechsler has a unique board certification in both dermatology and psychiatry, which has helped her treat patients' many skin care concerns.
In the latest installment of the series, Dr. Wechsler talks about hyperpigmentation. "It's not just wrinkles that make people look older, it's dark spots," she says. To brighten skin, Dr. Wechsler recommends in-office glycolic or salicylic acid peels or laser treatments. At-home brightening products, such as Chanel's Le Blanc Brightening Concentrate ($195), are also options. While there are no easy solutions to erase dark spots completely, "the best long-term strategy to keep hyperpigmentation at bay is daily, broad-spectrum sunscreen," Dr. Wechsler stresses. Get her full recommendations on brightening skin, and see the other videos when you keep reading.
To celebrate its latest watch, the J12 Moonphase, Chanel has created a short film that imagines what it would be like to delve inside the timepiece's housing.
Why such a romantic notion for a watch based on technical innovation? It includes a complication that tracks the four phases of the moon, with symbols representing each phase located on a blue aventurine disc that looks like the night sky. The imagery in the film befits this watch's heavenly aspirations: everything in it is white, including a stallion seen galloping to the edge of a snow-covered cliff and a sailboat on a gently moving lake.
A look at Chanel's newest watch, here.

Stars popped up both in the front row and on the runway at the Chanel Spring 2014 show during Paris Fashion Week today. Katy Perry got decked out in a black-and-white Chanel ensemble to work her stuff in front of specially created art pieces that were designed for the presentation. She was joined in the front row by Rita Ora, who got to watch her best friend Cara Delevingne strut her stuff on the catwalk in a rainbow number, and Vanessa Paradis. Meanwhile, the show itself was full of surprising runway returns for famous models. Alexa Chung, who used to model before she became a TV host, strutted her stuff down the stage, and Miranda Kerr, who made her Paris Fashion Week 2013 debut yesterday at Stella McCartney, also took over stomping duty alongside Fashion Week regular Cara. One supermodel who didn't work her stuff for designer Karl Lagerfeld was Kate Upton, who took time off from her model duties by sitting in the front row next to Vogue's Grace Coddington.
Artistry is always the name of the game at Chanel, as we've seen in collections past, and that was no different for Karl Lagerfeld's Spring 2014 show. To match the high-on-color collection, models were outfitted with insanely graphic eye-makeup looks. Pinks, blues, yellows, and greens were painted around the eyes, looking as if the artists had simply flicked their wrists to apply the pigment,and then lined haphazardly in black. The color and painterly lines even extended up and beyond the brows, drawing attention to the A-line wigs with choppy bangs each model was sporting. Inky black polish balanced out the overtly artistic hair and makeup, making for a whole lot of look coming down the Chanel runway.
Karl Lagerfeld proved himself as the ultimate showman today, turning the Grand Palais into a Chanel modern art gallery for the Spring 2014 show. Models glided past paintings and sculptures referencing the house's iconic logo, tweeds, and fragrances to the thumping beat of Jay Z's "Picasso, Baby." New motifs of the season focused on wearing two bags at once, including the graffiti-emblazoned tote and embellished backpack. And if you love bright color, you're in luck with almost neon shades turning up in ruffled dresses and even a crop top. And while the front row glittered with stars like Katy Perry and Rita Ora, the runway was just as star-filled with models including Alexa Chung, Miranda Kerr and Cara Delevingne. A masterpiece indeed!
