As our thoughts turn to fancy dresses, dancing and Monte Carlo, our eyes should naturally look to the ultimate chic film, Coco Avant Chanel. The story of Gabrielle Chanel is tragic yet fascinating. The first scene depicts the young girl as she is dropped off at an orphanage by her cold-hearted father. Yet rather than portraying such seemingly improper actions in a negative light, the film depicts Coco as a strong and independent woman, undeterred by the judgments made about her. Taking inspiration from her simple orphanage clothing, Coco begins sewing plain dresses and hats to make money. A main focus of the film, however, lies in the strange romances that Coco develops throughout her young adult life. Though she never marries, Coco Chanel has two great love affairs. Coco and the love of her life, Boy, frankly discuss the difference between marriage and romance, for example. Thus Coco never marries but continues to have a love affair of her own accord. She retains romantic independence while simultaneously throwing herself deep into the world of elegant and refined beauty: featherless fashion.
