50 Shades of Bleu? Chanel’s new advert sets our screens a-smoulder

On the day Sam Taylor-Wood‘s 50 Shades of Grey opens across the country, we thought we’d share with you another (and rather) shorter video to get you a little hot under the collar, perhaps.

Bleu de Chanel‘s new advertising film features ‘Hannibal Rising’ actor and would-be film director Gaspard Ulliel, who also gives an interview about the experience – and shares his thoughts on Chanel – in a second video below. (We’re trying to avoid ‘bleu movie’ allusions, but it’s hard.)  As usual, we’re enjoying trying to figure out the back-story to the ad (just as we did with Gisele Bundchen‘s No5 debut, at Christmas.)
So who’s it to be, this Valentine’s weekend? Gaspard Ulliel? Jamie Dornan? Bleu or Grey…?

The good news is: we don’t have to choose.
