Keira To Play Coco Under Lagerfeld’s Direction
Karl Lagerfeld has cast British actress Keira Knightley for the role of famed designer Coco Chanel, in a short movie to be directed by him.
The mini flick will celebrate 100 years of the legendary designer’s professional life, taking off from the point where Mademoiselle Chanel opened her first namesake boutique in the French seaside town of Deauville.
The anniversary video will have Knightley starring alongside models Stella Tennant, Tallulah Harlech, Brad Kroenig and his son Hudson, the Mirror reported.
The film will be screened in May during the fashion house's Cruise Collection, to be held in Singapore.
