The Beauty of Retrospect: Catherine Deneuve

I can't revisit women I've featured before on this blog without revisiting Catherine Deneuve. And, of course, despite her starring roles in movies such as La Chamade, Indochine, and countless others, you can't talk about Catherine Deneuve without talking about . . .her Chanel ads from the seventies.

Yes, it's a pity that many Americans only know Catherine Deneuve for her ads for Chanel No. 5, while accepting the "talents" of other "actresses" at face value, but in a truly horrible world, no one in this republic would have heard of Catherine Deneuve at all.

The above print ad is from 1977.
