More film stills from Audrey Tautou's turn as Coco Chanel in the biopic, Coco Avant Chanel, have sprung up in the November '08 issue of French Elle. The movie is still filming in Paris, but we are already très excited for it to hit cinemas! Tautou plays the legendary designer in her early years, and to reflect this costume designer Catherine Leterrier focused on showing how Chanel "was different from the ladies of her time". "She was poor, but she had her own style," she said.

The film is slated for UK release in late 2009. To see more pics, click on...
