chanel advertising doesn't convince me

I love this advertising!

"It's a lifting, firming and smoothing fluid makeup, that helps your skin firmly resist the look of aging."

The model on the ad is Natalia Vodianova, supermodel extraordinaire.

Her date of birth is 02/28/1982.

And that is the only reason why her skin looks flawless: because she is 27!

Shouldn't they target an older crowd when trying to sell a firming product?

Why the 27 year old model?

Her face doesn't look so young because she is using the cream... it looks so young because it is!

Nope, I'm not sold on this cream (I want a "much" older model)...

Maybe Chanel already had the same thoughts and that's why they took a 27 year old instead of a 19 year old ;-)I think in the model business at age 27, you are already ancient.

Now I feel ancient! LOL

Thanks Anon :)

Her skin is killer in there, even for 27

As in... I would kill for that skin.

Let's see what her skin looks like when she's twice her age - otherwise known as MY age!

I'm sure even her skin is not as perfect as it looks - they airbrush the heck out of these photos.

Add in that she looks younger than 27 ;)

Nope, not too many women look like Natalia when they get of bed in the morning, not even Natalia.
