OK, so the title is a lie. The beautiful star of Pirates of the Caribbean is also the pitch model for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume. She was photographed astride a pale pink 1970′s Ducati 750 Sport in matching pink retro leathers and helmet. The Paris filming was for a new TV commercial for the perfume.
Sadly, instead of actually riding the classic Duc, Knightly was a passenger on a dolly for the shoot. However, a statuesque beauty on a Ducati is a good thing even if the bike has training wheels.
I don’t know how the Coco Mademoiselle perfume will smell, but anything mixed with the exhaust of a classic desmo twin has got to smell great!
Word on the street is that Valentino Rossi is considering the same pale pink motif for his 2011 Ducati MotoGP bikes. OK, that’s not true either, but I wouldn’t put it past him!
