On Aug. 16, Chanel released the ad (above) for Kristen’s “Gabrielle” fragrance campaign. Although the bisexual actress has appeared in countless Chanel ads, this one is a big deal because this is the brand’s first solo fragrance in 15 years.

If you want to buy the perfume, it will cost you $105.00. I’m a bonafide peasant, so I’ll be enjoying this fragrance in spirit.

That’s a wrap! Enjoy the weekend, LDIO readers.
