Coco Avant Chanel

Unless you've been living under a rock lately (or just have way more willpower than me and can resist the siren call of cable/internet), you probably know that Audrey Tatou is starring in the latest Coco Chanel biopic. Seriously, what's with all the fashion biopics/documentaries this year? I like it! Anyways, having seen the Shirley Maclaine version, I can safely say that this one is going to be better, and I haven't even seen it yet. I mean, Coco Chanel had an amazing life, while wearing and designing amazing clothes. Even Lifetime couldn't mess that story up. Since Coco Avant Chanel was released in basically every country but the US so far (why?!?!), I rounded up a couple of stills from the movie to help tide you over until the movie gods decide to let us see the actual film:

So far I have concluded that one, Audrey Tatou is relentlessly adorable (like that needed confirmation) and two, I need all the clothes from this movie. I love how Coco was slightly adrogynous and yet extremely feminine at the same time. And none of the clothes here actually look dated. Talk about timeless chic.

  1. Breton is from Bretagne and the sailors from Bretagne wore those kind of shirts and pull-overs.
