All eyes were on Audrey Tautou at the Paris premiere for Coco Avant Chanel, which took place last night.

Audrey stars as Gabrielle Chanel, known as Coco, before she became famous. The film, of course, features dresses from the Chanel collection. Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director of the House of Chanel, supervised the re-creation of costumes and accessories, so we will have a magically journey through the archives.

At the premiere Audrey was, as you would expect, dressed in Chanel. Her strapless black and white floral print dress was from the Spring 2009 Couture collection.

The wonderfully chic actress wore her dress with a leather jacket, and Sergio Rossi back zip gladiator sandals. It’s hard to tell with her jacket, but her dress seems less voluminous in the hip area, than it appeared on the runway. Nevertheless, Audrey looks outstanding.


Coco Avant Chanel premieres in France on April 22, the rest of the world is yet to be announced.
