Released to celebrate the 100th anniversary from the opening of the first Chanel boutique, the black and white film directed by Karl Lagerfeld, after a script written by himself, has in the foreground the beautiful actress Keira Knightley in the role of Gabrielle Coco Chanel.
Once Upon a Time tells the story of the beginning of the brand: the days when Coco Chanel opened her first store under the name of Gabrielle Chanel, and sold her first creations – hats –to some clients that wanted to go against the tide and fashion.
In the film, besides Keira Knightley, appear the actress Clotilde Hesme in the role of Adrienne, the aunt who helped Coco at the opening of her first store, and also the model Jake Davis starring Coco’s boyfriend, and the beautiful top models Stella Tennant, Saskia de Brau or Lindsey Wixson.
The film is homage to Chanel house, even if it lasts only 15 minutes (18 minutes with the generic and thanks). It is a pleasure to watch it! Enjoy!
