New Pic From Coco Avant Chanel
Audrey Tautou gets her chic on

The legendary Coco Chanel revolutionised women's lives by introducing them to the joys of the trouser suit and the little black dress. And now a film biopic, Coco Avant Chanel, hopes to introduce us to the woman behind the quilted handbag - and the first pics from the film, with Audrey Tautou in the starring role, are online.

Director Anne Fontaine (who had been taking a hiatus from direction in favour of screenwriting for the past decade) picked up the directing reins from original appointee Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and has opted to steer clear of his quirky stylings in favour of what looks to be a swish costume drama. Fontaine also adapted the story for the screen, from a book written by Edmonde Charles-Roux.

Looking not a little like a high-budget House Of Eliott, the film co-stars Alessandro Nivola (Goal!) and Female Agents' Marie Gillain. Currently filming in Paris, it is set for release later this year.

Chanel + Tautou = Chicness to Another Level
I am excited for this one. I saw the one with Shirley Maclaine and Chanel had an interesting life. WithTautou, this is priceless. More

I'm quite interested
in this - not that I'm a fashionista or anything, I just think it would be quite intriguing. Audrey looks strangely masculine in the face in that picture of her. The film better be in French!!!!!! More
