So here's a little bit of glamour to start your week after the last long weekend of the summer.
Jean-Jacques Annaud, the director of fare such as "The Bear," "Enemy At The Gates" and "Seven Years In Tibet" is the latest in a long line of directors to go down the fashion route, and his latest endeavour is making Charlize Theron look even more glamorous in a new ad for the fragrance Dior J'Adore. The spot features Theron rushing to the runway and as she gets ready to strut her stuff folks like Marlene Dietrich, Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe nod in approval. Nothing out of the ordinary here, but as far as flashy, expensive-looking fashion ads go, it's not bad.
As for Annaud, he's currently readying his next film "Black Gold." Starring Antonio Banderas, Tahar Rahim, Freida Pinto, Mark Strong and Riz Ahmed, the film chronicles a young man torn between his father and father-in-law at the start of the 1930s oil boom in the Middle East. No word yet on a release date, but we presume it will hit the festival circuit soon. Meanwhile, Theron will be seen in Jason Reitman's "Young Adult" later this year. In the meantime, check out the ad below. [via ONTD]
