Brad Pitt's reign as the face of Chanel No. 5 has come to an end.
The actor, who caused quite a stir when he assumed the role in 2012 with a black and white ad that spawned multiple spoofs, is being replaced by Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
Australian director-screenwriter Baz Luhrmann - best known for directing the films Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet - will helm the campaigns.
This will be the second time Luhrmann is directing a Chanel No.5 ad; he previously worked with Nicole Kidman on an ad in 2004.
