Charlize & Dior

Glamour returns big-time with that latest advertisement for Dior with Charlize Theron. Filmed exclusively at the Château de Versailles, she radiates throughout the commercial. Jean-Jacques Annaud directed the visually stunning clip. Through the wonders of technology, Charlize gets to mingle with legendary blond sirens from old Hollywood. She kisses Grace Kelly on the cheek, coyly smiles at Marlene Dietrich and hands over a bottle of the fragrance to Marilyn Monroe. It’s the first time Monroe’s likeness has been used in a fragrance ad since 1987.

Charlize certainly seems among the most interesting of the current leading ladies - she does not play safe in rom-coms or in bland girlfriend roles. Interesting new movies of hers coming up include Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS with man of the moment Michael Fassbender, and YOUNG ADULT. MONSTER was her first venture as producer and her company are also invoved in YOUNG ADULT. Perhaps only Kate Winslet, Michelle Williams, Naomi Watts and Carey Mulligan are as in control of their careers and making as interesting choices ...
