Audrey Tatou in Coco Before Chanel

Timeless, icon of fashion, ahead of her time, these are all used to describe Coco Chanel. I had the great pleasure of viewing the movie Coco Avant Chanel (Coco Before Chanel in English) last night and fell in love all over again with the designer. The story of how she became this long-lasting legacy in fashion is not without hardship, but she rises above it so elegantly and thus begins her adventure into what becomes the Chanel brand which still stands for simple sophistication. Below I share with you some of my favorite images from the film and of the real Coco herself. Enjoy.
