Coco Before Chanel

Published by


I recently watched the film, Coco Before Chanel, starring Audrey Tautou, directed by Anne Fontaine.

What a film. I truly enjoyed Ms. Fontaine’s interpretation of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s life.

This woman was so intriguing.

She grew up an orphan, by means of abandonment. Worked as a singer/dancer in a bar. Worked as a seamstress.

There was truly an elegance about her throughout all of these experiences.

My favorite moment that I drew from was a pivotal moment in her life, where she really did “stand up” and “take a risk.”

That risk led us to know her, led her to become, a true embodiment of her strength, elegance, and work ethic: one of the largest and best designers in the world. Certainly one of the most well known.

I recommend this as a watch. It’s a true inspiration, of someone who was who she was, and became beautiful through it.

P.S. It contains all the right elements of a girly movie: hot guy, sentimental story, etc.
