Coco avant Chanel

Even if vous ne parlez pas de francais (that's "don't speak French," for all of you that, don't speak French), there's plenty else in this two-minute trailer for Coco avant Chanel, the upcoming biopic about Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, starring Audrey Tautou in the title role.

While it's a.) In French and b.) Without subtitles, you can definitely get a sense of the glamour just from the incredible visuals. From the looks of the teaser, the movie is going to take on Coco's incredible success at turning the fashion world on its head: Freeing women from corsets and winning the heart of the Duke of Westminster (although she famously spurned her suitor, telling him, "There have been several Duchesses of Westminster. There is only one Chanel.") And this spring, she comes to life on the big screen!
