Description:
This true story of the magnificent Coco Chanel is the inspiration for a major new film starring Audrey Tautou - opening at Australian cinemas 25 June 2009.

She revolutionised how women looked. She banned corsets, shortened skirts and scented the world with Chanel No.5. Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel was an icon. Yet her real story only came to light when Vogue editor Edmonde Charles-Roux, intrigued by Chanel's carefully moulded image, decided to pursue the true history of this enigmatic icon.
