1)    BRAD PITT FOR CHANEL NO. 5: International superstar Brad Pitt, whose new film, "Killing Them Softly," blasted its way into theaters on October 19th, has a new side gig: Model for Chanel No. 5, one of the world's most noted female fragrances.

It is the first time we've had a man speaking about a women's fragrance," Andrea d'Avack, a spokesman for Chanel, was quoted as saying by "We think very much that the perfume is a seduction between a man, a woman and the perfume. No.5 is our leading fragrance, and we are willing to make the investment to keep it on that level."

2)    DIOR FINDS NEW MUSE: Fans of the blockbuster film "Hunger Games" have come to know 22-year-old Jennifer Lawrence as an up and coming film siren, but the talented young actress was recently pegged to be the face for Christian Dior's Miss Dior handbag campaign, to be unveiled in magazines early spring next year, according to fashion journal WWD. "Like everyone else, I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence in the roles she played in action movies," Dior creative director Raf Simons was reported as saying. "I was, of course, struck by her incredible on-screen presence in these blockbuster films, but also impressed by her powerful interpretations of subtler more rounded characters. Her youth and her classic beauty, but also her force of character and the complexity she's capable of embodying at such a young age, are, for me, both unique and very moving."

3)    PENELOPE CRUZ EYES 'GUCCI': The life and times of the Gucci family is one step closer to the big screen, as celebrated actress Penelope Cruz is reportedly in talks to star as Patrizia Reggiani, former wife of Maurizio Gucci, who was murdered in 1995 by a hired hit man. Reggiani was later found guilty of arranging the killing and remains behind bars, going so far as to refuse parole because she had grown accustomed to a life of leisure before her 1997 conviction: "No thanks, as it would mean getting a job and I have never worked a day in my life," she allegedly told a 2011 parole board when offered the chance to be freed.
