Now this is an example of inspired casting: Audrey Tautou, the modern-day gamine who charmed audiences as Amelie,  portrayed the early years of quintessential fashion icon Coco Chanel in the forthcoming biopic Coco Before Chanel. Like Coco, Audrey is very pretty, very chic, and very, very French.What’s not to love???


The movie is about the story of Coco Chanel’s rise from obscure beginnings to the heights of the fashion world. Coco was very original , passionate , beautiful , exceptionally talented …. a true pioneer…

Without a doubt the clothes here are the star of the show, from the fashions of societal norms in both directions of the rich-poor spectrum, to Coco Chanel’s designs for her own with her menswear inspired pieces, and unfortunately, the glamour-chic pieces only making it through in a parting shot at the finale, since the founding of the business empire was grossly passed over deliberately. The opulently designed clothes of that era stand in stark contrast to the Chanel pieces, which celebrates sheer beauty and elegance in their simplicity, and probably from there, stamping its mark on the fashion industry.
