Coco Before Chanel comes out today (June 11th) in Hong Kong and I have been patiently waiting for this movie to arrive ever since I heard about it. My kitty is named after the fashion icon so I knew this would be on my must see list for 2009!
The movie stars Audrey Tautou who portrays Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel and it provides us with a history of how Gabrielle, the orphan, turned into Coco Chanel the designer we all know today. The film takes place in the late 1920’s and it takes us through the hardships and heartaches that Coco had to overcome and it shows us that her success did not come easy. Fashion lovers are sure to be enthralled with this movie because it gives a glimpse into the life of one of the most famous fashion designers but this is not just a movie for the fashionista at heart. This movie is about succeeding amongst difficulty and perseverance and I am sure almost anyone can relate to that.
