Coco Before Chanel


Saw this wonderful film recently with Audrey Tautou. All about Coco Chanel before she became Coco Chanel. I enjoyed the sophisticated treatment of her rise, from orphan to music hall singer to country squire’s mistress to proprietor of a small hat shop in Paris. Tautou is excellent as the independent, driven woman who would later revolutionize the fashion world. The photography is magnificent, the costumes are ravishing, and the lush interiors of French country chateaus gave me several ideas for clients. Not to be missed.
