As our thoughts turn to fancy dresses, dancing and Monte Carlo, our eyes should naturally look to the ultimate chic film, Coco Avant Chanel. The story of Gabrielle Chanel is tragic yet fascinating. The first scene depicts the young girl as she is dropped off at an orphanage by her cold-hearted father. Yet rather than portraying such seemingly improper actions in a negative light, the film depicts Coco as a strong and independent woman, undeterred by the judgments made about her. Taking inspiration from her simple orphanage clothing, Coco begins sewing plain dresses and hats to make money.
