I remember a Chanel commercial, where the girl morphs into Marilyn Monroe. A bit strange but applicable.

Well apparently this is what they aim her to be, which I do like since she is and looks amazing. The whole commercial is pure genius and perfection in terms of script, acting and modern techniques: looooooooooove :p

wow the inclusion of the dead starlets is weird, i wish they had gone with the runway concept and used modern actresses or models instead coz Charlize looks amazing in it! The music doesnt even suit the classic actresses that were fixed into the ad

Its a great commercial! I never knew Charlize could walk like that, I wish she would walk RTW shows.
Who else appears in the commercial besides Charlize and the other actresses? I could have sworn i saw Morgane '35 sec. At '50 sec i swear i've seen that model at dior shows before. I can't remember her name though.

^That's Morgane indeed...there's Milana Keller (first model you see as Charlize enters backstage) and the girl at 0:50 is Thana Kuhnen. As Charlize runs towards the runway, I think I see Michelle Westgeest and Maria Kashleva lined up next to the legendary ladies. All Dior couture favorites.

So Grace, Marilyn and Marlene were digitally produced? No doppelgangers? That's quite an achievement for a commercial!

For half a second i thought that Marlene was Iekeliene Stange. The cheek bones are similar, but I'm pretty sure they are all digitally altered. I think that there is a Macy's commercial that did something similar to this last Christmas.

Its a bit startling, how they manipulated all those iconic women, and its eery, and sort of out of place, wrong even? But Charlize looks amazing on her own, so it wasn't necessary at all imo.

I dont really like it....
First i dont like the video idea about her on the show and the old stars look so weird in this context!

They wanted to make it memorable but one thing i know is that the last commercial was really simple yet it was so powerful that made it iconic.
Also Carmenīs commercial was so much better than with Charlize but Carm is not a celebrity
