As the fashion world holds its breath in anticipation for the release of the French movie "Coco avant Chanel" starring Audrey Tatou as the titular character, for now we'll have to settle for Lifetime's original telefilm "Coco Chanel" starring Shirley McLaine as Coco in 1954. The movie covers the span of Coco's life from when she was a young child (played by Barbara Bobulova) in a French orphanage all the way to her rise as one of the world's most influential and successful fashion icons. "Coco Chanel" premieres Saturday, September 13 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime Television.
I already have my DVR set to record the movie, but until then I've been spending time on myLifetime.com reading up on Chanel facts, and checking out Chanel runway show images and red carpet photos of Hollywood's leading ladies wearing Chanel. But I'm really hoping to win the sparkling calfskin Chanel bowling handbag and $2,000.
