^ LOL ModelMayhem!!

I don't think they'll cast Gaga. Having Andrew Haigh direct and casting Jack O'Connell as the lead tells me the powers that be are pushing towards the prestige Oscar bait side of film making.

I agree with you. Based on the people involved, it sounds like they're not trying to go the "camp" route, but rather a prestige picture route. There's no room for the likes of Gaga on this train. Thankfully.

45 years is a thoughtful and lovely film; if it could follow in that vein then maybe... but it worries me too. biopics are always dangerous territory imo.

If you want a 'nice' story maybe you should opt for one of the endless retellings of Coco Chanel's life. I mean I'm sorry, but isn't the person responsible for a beautiful dress as intriguing as the dress itself? It's such an antiquated way of compartmentalising the art and the artist.
Anyway, in most cases, be it art, fashion, or even literature, the most beautiful creations almost always came from a place of appalling wretchedness. And that's what I'm actually looking forward to. Something which will unveil a little more of the man behind those haunting creations.

^^^ Even Coco wasn't remotely "nice"... But I suppose the years have idealized her into some saintly gamine with an eternal broken heart that fought against all odds to become the doyen of high fashion and the modern woman.

Frankly, if one wanted to tell a "nice" story with fashion people, then best to look elsewhere.

Ugh, there's nobody in fashion whose lifestory I loathe as much as Coco Chanel's. It's as overfetishized as La Parisienne! Maybe it's all Karl's fault with those poorly acted 'short films' of his.

I know of others whose lifestories appeared to have been drenched into chlorine! American greats, Ralph Lauren, CH, ODLR, Donna Karan....these put me to sleep with a click of two fingers.

^^^ Let’s just be thankful this isn’t a 100%-Hollywood/ American production. Otherwise, you know it’s doomed to either be a feel-good chick-flick about the fluffy and silly fashion industry— or it’s a campy… feel-good comedy about the fluffy and silly fashion industry… Americans/ Hollywood still only see feature films about fashion/ high fashion as just fluffy and silly chick-flicks. And you just know they'd cast Meryl as Blow...

And that’s worse than any incarnations of all those endless Coco Chanel fairy tales that's churned out every 10 years!

Excited about this idea if it's executed correctly. Rossy de Palma would make a fantastic Isabella Blow!
