coco avant chanel

I've always had an unhealthy obsession with the life of Coco Chanel (I even named my hamster after her in high school), the French language, and fashion. Perhaps these reasons are why I'm beyond excited to see Coco avant Chanel, a Coco Chanel biopic which releases in France next month. Played by Audrey Tautou, Coco Chanel sports such Parisian classics as the timeless pencil skirt, classic pearls, the ever-popular striped shirt, and Chanel’s own creations, the tweed “Chanel suit” and the little black dress. And that is in the movie trailer alone!

The only downfall to Coco avant Chanel, which translates to Coco Before Chanel, is the movie's lack of subtitles. Even as a French minor, I can barely understand most of what's being said in the trailer.

This woman's outfit is splendidly perfect. I know it's a little late considering that winter is passing, but I love the look of all black with one pop of color. I seriously adore everything about the outfit; the contrast of the black shirt and tights with the pink skirt, the timeless black coat, the fur hat, her red hair. I thought she was Jenny Lewis at first glance. My ultimate girl crush!
