The new Chanel short film Once upon a time starring Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel was released today Wednesday. The film is directed by Karl Lagerfeld himself obviously, and also features the actresses of Clotilde Hesme and Tallulah Harlech and the the models Lindsey Wixson, Stella Tennant and Saskia de Brauw, Baptiste Giabiconi along with a lot of other familiar appearances.
As noted in the Youtube comment field, the acting and dialog seem a bit awkward, but it may be explicable by the fact that the actors and actresses were given their lines just minutes before the shoot. Or perhaps it was simply a well-aware choice by Karl Lagerfeld who apparently wanted the “natural effect”. Anyway, the costumes from earlier eras presented in the film are sufficient reason for watching it through.
