Brad Pitt’s Second Video Spot for Chanel N°5 Isn’t Worse Than the First

"The story continues…" tweeted Chanel, as if we'd all been waiting with bated breath to see whether the second installment of Brad Pitt's Chanel N°5 ad was as bad as the first. The short answer is, "No." The long answer is… "I don't know what Brad Pitt was thinking signing on to be Chanel's video boy, but I'm having a hard time believing that he and Angelina Jolie need any more money, even if they do have enough children to populate a small nation state."

Watch Out World: Tyra Banks Has Decided She Wants to Have a Baby

To me, a Tyra Banks video interview is sort of like a box of chocolate: overly sweet and totally unnecessary, but impossible to resist.

Anyway, former supermodel and America's Next Top Model host went on Steve Harvey and talked about how she's so, so ready to have kids:

"I'm 38 years old, I think it's time. They're going to be hard-boiled and fried and scrambled up in here," she said, pointing at her ovaries. "So it's time to get these eggs working."

It's sort of like when you oversleep in the morning and just barely have time to sit and enjoy breakfast but you still really want breakfast, so you skip conditioner in the shower and do a real road-runner job in the kitchen frying up an egg.

I'm sorry, but who talks about their own reproductive system in terms of breakfast? Breakfast is sacred.

Sasha Pivovarova and Prada Reunited for Resort 2013! (Forum Buzz)

Sasha Pivovarova’s career began on the Prada runway, and she was subsequently signed to an exclusive three-year advertising contract with the brand, so it seems fitting that Sasha and Prada would reunite for the model’s post-pregnancy comeback. Though she only gave birth this past May, Sasha looks more than ready for her close-up in Prada’s Resort 2013 ad campaign (photographed by Steven Meisel), and forum members couldn’t be more excited.

“This is the comeback! Sasha is so right for Prada, not classically beautiful and quirky. Can't wait to see more.” Melancholybaby posted.

“This is the best comeback ever. Always love Sasha for Prada!” Lifeispeachy commented.

“Jesus Christ, I almost fell off my chair. The ultimate Prada girl is BAAAACK!” Marc10 exclaimed. “Amazing! Sasha look stunning, maternity really gave an extra glow. The styling and setting is impeccable too. Damn, Miuccia is not playing with these campaigns.”

There are already five pages in the forums of adoring posts like those quoted above, and we haven’t even seen really quality scans or digital versions of the campaign yet. That’s just the power of the Sasha-Prada combo I guess.

YSL Wants Its Louboutin Feud to Be Over

After spending over a year mired in a lawsuit over red-soled shoes with Christian Louboutin, today Yves Saint Laurent filed a motion to dismiss the remainder of the case.

Louboutin initiated the legal battle in April 2011 when it tried to block sales of a YSL monochromatic red pump, claiming it infringed on Louboutin's 2008 trademark, which protects its signature red soles against copycats. After a judge barred the attempted injunction, Louboutin moved to appeal the decision.

This September, a New York federal appeals court upheld the previous ruling, backing Yves Saint Laurent's right to sell its all-red shoe. The court even went further by narrowing Louboutin's trademark: the footwear brand's competitors are now barred from manufacturing shoes with a red sole only when the upper is in a contrasting color.

Today, YSL moved to withdraw its counterclaims against Louboutin. Yves Saint Laurent attorney David H. Bernstein told The Fashion Spot his client was "thrilled" with the court's earlier decision and that since "there's no case for an injunction at all," it doesn't matter to Yves Saint Laurent's business whether or not they cancel the Louboutin trademark entirely. According to the press briefing, YSL made the decision to terminate the counter-litigation so it could "refocus its energies on its business and creative designs."

"A litigation is a terribly disruptive thing," Bernstein told us, "It's a distraction for everyone*. Parties are deposed so they have to spend all day in court, away from the design studio."

Bernstein says the counterclaim filing was a counter-offensive strategy. "The counterclaims were about defending ourselves against Louboutin… Now bear in mind, if Louboutin tries to come after us again in the future, we will absolutely look into refiling those counterclaims."

Brad Pitt’s Chanel N°5 Video Is So Bad, There Are No Jokes

I just think that any lame attempt at humor on my part will pale in comparison to Chanel's new joke of a video.

Here's Brad Pitt's much-hyped spot for Chanel N°5. This is the first time a major brand has cast a male spokesperson to advertise a product for women — although, it's not clear which women this commercial is supposed to be targeting, because I've never met anyone of any gender that wouldn't think this was god-awful. While watching this moving picture monstrosity, bear in mind Pitt's $7 million contract with the French fashion brand and Chanel's reputation as a paragon of taste.
