There's a new lifeguard on duty, and she's most definitely not going to trade in her designer swimwear for a regulation suit.

Gisele Bündchen posted (opens in new tab) a behind-the-scenes image of what is possibly her Chanel No. 5 campaign , which shows the uber-model prancing gracefully on a beach as if she were on her way to rescue some poor soul from drowning. Clutching a surfboard emblazoned with that interlocked-C logo, she wears a navy-and-white bouclé jacket—or even better, a trompe l'oeil wetsuit—and presumably high-cut bikini (opens in new tab) briefs.

It was announced last May the supermodel would be following in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman and Vanessa Paradis as the star of the new No.5 campaign, and will team up with acclaimed Australian director Baz Luhrmann on the advertising campaign. By the looks of this picture, we'll be in for something great.
