Audrey Tautou as Coco avant Chanel: More Stills

Dec 10 2008 - 4:28pm

>> We saw the first shot of Audrey Tautou as Coco Chanel [1] early last month, but the Nov. 24 edition of Elle France had a new group of images from the set of Coco avant Chanel, which centers around Chanel's early years and modest origins.  The movie — currently filming in Paris — will be released [2] in France in May 2009, with international screenings to follow later in the year.  Costumer Catherine Leterrier, who is said to have collaborated [3] with Karl Lagerfeld, focused on [4] showing how Chanel "was different from the ladies of her time" — "she was poor, but she had her own style."  Those looking for extravagant costumes won't be disappointed, however: the film is supposed to culminate [5] in a runway show of classic Chanel designs.
