Who Is The Actress In The Coco Mademoiselle Commercial?

Few ads can match the glitz and glamor of a fragrance commercial. The fashion companies behind them often bring in A-list Hollywood talent and depict a life of elegance and opulence that can be incredibly enticing for consumers. One such ad that has recently caught the attention of viewers is a commercial for Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel depicting a stylishly dressed woman returning to her hotel room and placing a "Do Not Disturb" sign on her door before pulling out a chess set. She sits alone for a moment before being summoned by a knock at the door — which she eagerly goes to answer.

The ad arguably works not only because of the lifestyle it depicts but also due to its notable casting. In fact, the actress who stars in the Coco Mademoiselle commercial will likely look familiar to many pop culture aficionados. With that in mind, the time has come to dive in and take a much closer look at the star behind this enthralling piece of advertising.
