12 Days of Chanel: Chanel Films

Coco Chanel is one of the most intriguing women of the 20th Century.  Since it’s difficult to get a hold of interviews of Mademoiselle (especially if you don’t read French), I love to watch films about Gabrielle Chanel.  Of course, they are movies and artistic license is applied liberally, but it’s nice to see her come to life if only for a few hours.  I also love seeing the clothing and the sets – a bit like seeing history repeat itself – and getting a glimpse of the time period in which she lived.

All three of the films are good in their own way but very different:  Chanel Solitaire was the very first and is only available on VHS, Coco Before Chanel documents Chanel’s rise to fame and Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky follows an illicit love affair later in Chanel’s career.  I’ve seen all three and my favorite is Coco Before Chanel but they are all worth watching.  These DVDs would make a great gift or stocking stuff for any fashion or movie buff and are available on Amazon.com.
