To me, Audrey Tautou will always be AmÃ©lie. To others, soon, she will be Coco.
â€œCoco Before Chanel,â€ biopic of celebrated fashion designer Coco Chanel is based on book â€œLâ€™Irreguliereâ€ (The Nonconformist) by Edmonde Charles-Roux, directed and written by Anne Fontaine and Camille Fontaine.
Audrey Tautou stars as Gabrielle Chanel, known as Coco, before she became famous. Watch the trailer (in French) after the jump…
The film will feature dresses from the Chanel collection.
Karl Lagerfeld, art director of the House of Chanel, will supervise the re-creation of costumes and accessories.
