Coco Before Chanel

Okay, this is not the Lifetime movie with my beloved Shirley MacLaine. This is the Audrey Tautou, pay attention because it's in French so read the English subtitle, version. I loved this movie!!!  It really didn't focus on her fashion too much at all, it was about her life leading up to her success.  What I loved most about her is that she was, like me, a tomboy and was very much into androgyny.  People would often tell her to wear heels, corsets, and overall "just be more feminine".  She would take men's suits and construct them into dresses.  So in a room of pretty pinks and powder blues, she was wearing black pinstripes.  It was so comforting to watch the real woman behind the brand.
