COCO CHANEL 2009
To perfect our knowledge about the biggest fashion designer, we were blessed when Coco Chanel was released in 2009. A very nice movie showing the early life of Gabrielle Chanel, better known as Coco Chanel, the big designer who relieved women from the corsage in the late twenties. A very well done and romantic movie with the charming Audrey Tautou in the leading role.
Coming from one fashion icon to the next one: Valentino Garavani.
This movie shows the life of Valentino and is very amusing and adorable. You really get the feeling to meet the legendary designer through this movie or at least you seem to know him as good as an old friend after you watched this funny and emotional movie about a man who reached for the stars and really got them.
