Audrey Tautou plays Coco Chanel in the film about the designer's life

Audrey Tautou, the French actress who starred in Amélie and The Da Vinci Code, plays Coco Chanel in her new film, Coco Before Chanel. It tells the story of how she overcame a difficult upbringing to start her own fashion business. She says talk of an Oscar for her role in the film is "funny" and that she's not very fashion savvy herself.


I think it's important to show who you are through your clothes. I'm not very good with brands. I'm not a specialist
Audrey Tautou

Coco Before Chanel opens in the UK on Friday 31 July
