Take a look at the exploration of Coco Chanel's untold story on how she rose from a humble beginning to be one of coutures' most important icons, through 'Coco Before Chanel' international teaser.
The Telegraph has got a hold on an exclusive U.K. teaser trailer of "Coco Before Chanel" and has shared it for viewing pleasure. Opened to a quote from Coco Chanel herself which is read, "Fashion passes, style remains", the less than two minutes video highlights on the journey of this celebrated French fashion designer from her humble beginnings to the heights of society.
Exposing Coco's early life as the young Gabrielle Chanel, the trailer displays her working with a sewing machine before showing that her singing ambitions lead her to a cabaret club where she catches the eye of several high society gentlemen. It then cuts to the scenes of high society's life which she takes part of and gives out how she differentiates herself from any other women in her time.
From director Anne Fontaine, "Coco Before Chanel" stars "The Da Vinci Code" beauty Audrey Tautou as the title character. Benoit Poelvoorde, Alessandro Nivola, Marie Gillain and Emmanuelle Devos are also in the cast ensemble. This drama biopic which is also known by the name of "Coco avant Chanel" will be getting a limited release in the U.S. on September 25.
