Coco Avant Chanel

I just saw the new Coco Before Chanel film, its beautifully done. The acting, the music, the atmosphere, and the costumes ~ oh the costumes!

Is it wrong that I want a Breton shirt, to crop my hair and smoke thin cigarettes?



Audrey Tautou is compelling, the women are beautiful in a realistic way, and the script is neat, emotional, and often funny.

I saw it at the Little Theatre Cinema, the only cinema in Bath showing it. They played the new Chanel ad before the main feature too, have you seen it?

Time for me to find a really good Chanel biography...
