A First Look at ‘Coco Avant Chanel’


The first still from the Coco Avant Chanel movie has been released! We haven't been this excited about a film since the wonderful Valentino documentary, which we actually saw relatively recently, but whatever. Audrey Tautou plays Coco in the biopic, which comes out next year and is loosely based on the book L'irreguliere by Edmonde Charles-Roux. The film is being shot in Paris and Normandy, and will feature iconic Chanel dresses. Catherine Leterrier is designing the costumes with Karl Lagerfeld's oversight. Maybe this shot depicts Audrey as Coco fly fishing? If only she had her $15,000 Chanel rod back then. Sigh.
