Coco Before Chanel
Coco Chanel may now be known for her iconic tweeds and logo hangbags, but at the time of her rise in the fashion world, she made progressive strides in female fashion. In a male-dominated industry, she adapted men’s styles for women. In the 2009 film, Coco Before Chanel, French actress Audrey Tautou stars as the designer. The film is mostly centered on the early years from Chanel’s life, leading to her career rise. The film may feel like a by-the-books biopic, but it still manages to be an engrossing period piece and a tribute to arguably fashion’s biggest icon.
