The British actor will play Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the film directed by Chanel’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, to mark the French fashion house’s 100th anniversary. It will be filmed in the seaside town of Deauville, where the first Chanel boutique opened by Coco Chanel in 1913. The house seems to love the pretty actress, as she is the face of the brand’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume campaign, for which she was picked by Karl Lagerfeld personally, who has described her as one of his muses.
