Coco Avant Chanel

Opening this week Audrey Tautou will star in the French biopic Coco Avant Chanel, directed by Anne Fontaine. She is also replacing Plastic Face Nicole Kidman as the spokeswoman for Chanel No. 5 Perfume. Even though the trailer is in French, you kind of get the general idea. Can’t wait until it opens stateside:

Also, as the new face of Chanel No. 5, Audrey will be starring in a film commercial that will premiere on the Chanel website on May 5th (get it? Chanel No. 5? 5th day of the month? genius!). Helmed by French director Jean-Pierre Jeune, the 2 minute 25 second film took four months to shoot and will chart the story of Audrey and a mystery man who keep missing each other on a journey from Paris to Istanbul on the Orient Express. <Via Elle UK>

    OHHHHH!!! Coco! J’adore!!! Another justification for long pearl necklaces and two-tone flats!

    Perhaps you have not seen these fabulous subtitles: http://jezebel.com/5221835/do-you-really-think-a-something-something-is-going-to-marry-himself-with-a-girl-like-you

    Also, an event sighting of note: Last night Chanel was having un petit fete avec The Odeon (that Tribeca dining landmark) on West Broadway. Very glam, very closed to the public.

    A bientot darling!
