Karl Lagerfield Casts Keira Knightley

Another film on Coco Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld is getting back to the cinema side of things. In honour of the 100th anniversary of the first Chanel boutique, Uncle Karl direct a film about Coco Chanel’s life — starring Keira Knightley.

Considering Keira’s actually the face of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume, this isn’t really surprising (but what is, is that this isn’t a Joe Wright-directed film, since Ms. Knightley is usually attached to those).

While this won’t be like Tom Ford’s “A Single Man” from a few years back, Lagerfeld’s biopic will at least be aesthetically pleasing, thanks to eye for fashion and beauty, and thanks to Keira’s co-stars, Stella Tennant, Tallulah Harlech, Caroline De Maigret, Brad Kroenig, and his son. It also won’t be released to the masses — at least not right away. The film will debut in early May during Chanel’s cruise collection show in Singapore, so if you’re that into the idea, start saving for a ticket now.
