An Italian moment with Cate Blanchett

I was distractly watching TV a few days or weeks ago, and I saw (and heard) one of those fashion adverts, about a perfume. I don't care one bit the world of fashion, it usually bores me, but for some reason, I was loving this advert. There was some words said in Italian, and I could understand them, most of them anyway, which got me in a good mood. Then there was something about the model in the advert, and then it finally struck me: the voice and face were the ones of Cate Blanchett. My all-time favourite actress. She was advertising the perfume Si by Giorgio Armani. I am NOT a slave of fashion, I will never Armani, Gucci, or Chanel or what have you. Proof that I am a Philistine when it comes to fashion: the new campaign has been going on for months and I just noticed it. But hey, I love this advert to bits. And I know I once said that this blog does not advertise, but I did at least once uploaded an advert for its artistic and sentimental merit. Ironically, it was also about a perfume. I am not sure if this advert is that artistic or intelligent, but it has Italian and Cate Blanchett, so it is good enough for me.

Hey, I caught about 3/4 of that too, just because of the similarity between French and Italian!
