{August 7, 2009}   Coco Before Chanel: We go to The Movies! *UPDATED

It’s not all bargain hunting here at Cheap Clothes Rule – sometimes we manage to pull ourselves away from the High Street and go to the flicks. Last weekend we  combined our two loves by going to see the movie ‘Coco Before Chanel‘ – a biopic of the life of fashion icon and ‘little black dress’ originiator Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, starring Amelie leading woman Audrey Tatou. Check out the trailer (French)……….* UPDATE – Working HD trailer added 30/03/10, enjoy and sorry for the previous error!

If you have any interest all at in fashion we would highly recommend going to see this film – it is an excellent performance from Tatou and a convincing account of the life of this remarkable woman.

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” – Coco Chanel

Love your photo of Audrey as Coco, but she actually spells it “Tautou.” A wonderful portrayal of a designer before her time whose style lived on long after her death.
