Chanel On Film Again
Quote:
HOT off the back of Audrey Tautou, Anna Mouglalis is the next French actress to play Coco Chanel in the latest biopic "Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky." The film focuses on a more melancholic part of the designers life including her tragic love affair with composer Igor Stravinsky. Mouglalis, however, has controversially described the legendary couturier as a misogynist.

"She is recognised as a huge feminist, but most of the things she did, she did for herself and not for women in general," said Mouglalis. "I would even push it further, thinking she was more of a misogynist than a feminist, since she only had male friends."

Mouglalis has had first hand experience of the going-on's at Chanel, having previously modelled for the label. The actress offered high praise for the brand.

"Chanel is one of the only fashion houses that doesn't exploit women," she said to WWD. Mouglalis added that for Coco, "eroticism was the little piece of skin between the glove and the sleeve."

Karl Lagerfeld is yet to be impressed by the new film commenting that the role "has no relation to Mouglalis' talent for other roles." Mouglalis remains unphased.

"It's a lot for someone who [Lagerfeld remembers] as full of humour to be shown as cold and dark," Mouglalis remarked.

I don't know anything about Anna, but she seems like a strange choice to play Coco, as she looks nothing like Coco.
I and had no idea that Coco and Stravinsky were lovers at one point. I knew they were friends, but I thought that was it.

This one was out a while ago. I watched it in January of February I think! It was pretty good and Anna fitted so perfectly the character. But according to IMDb.com, it's only out right now in USA

Still haven't seen the film with Audrey, however this does sound like it could be good. I like how it will focus on Coco's relationship with Igor, although I can't really imagine Anna playing her.

Haven't they already made two films about Coco Chanel?

One starring Shirley McLaine and the other starring Audrey Tautou. How many do they need??

^I can't imagine who they'd cast to do justice for a man as totally epic as Karl Lagerfeld.
