Dior’s Hypnotic Poison ad starring Mélanie Laurent

Mélanie Laurent for Dior’s Hypnotic Poison

The French fashion house Dior, which is still without a head designer, has released a new commercial (directed by John Cameron Mitchell) for its iconic Hypnotic Poison fragrance, starring the French actress Mélanie Laurent.

Set against the musical background of Nina Simone’s “I Put A Spell On You,” Melanie Laurent does her best to parallel precursors including Milla Jovovich and Monica Bellucci in putting a hypnotic, poisonous spell on viewers.
