Something to Look Forward To



The adorable Audrey Tautou, best known as Amélie Poulain, is portraying Coco Chanel in a new biography. I'm can only hope that the movie is filled with lots of 1920's and 30's fashion to drool over. And speaking of fashion on film, when in the world is the new Grey Gardens movie coming out? Ah, ha! When I linked to the IMDB page I saw that it is coming in November. Yay for Little Edie!

Coco Chanel lives forever!!! She is a formidable style icon. Thank you for sharing this news.

People still emulate her. I am so psyched to see this movie! Hopefully it will hit the states.

I love Audrey Tautou! I'm sure the film will be a big hit. And thanks so much for letting us know about the new Grey Gardens film, I had no idea! But do you think Drew Barrymore can even come close to Little Edie? I guess we'll have to wait until November to find out.
XOXO

I have been longing for that film since I read an article about Coco. She was amazing! And I think there could be no better to portraying Coco Chanel than Audrey. November is so far away :(

closetbug said...

Been soooo excited to see the movie as soon as I heard Audrey Tautou is in it. I absolutely worship her. She has a beautiful face and is so elegant and classy.

Kennedy said...

seriously i am so excited about the new chanel movie! audrey tatou is perfect i think. also we must be on the same wavelength because i just put a hold on my libraries copy of grey gardens.

Cammila said...

Yes indeed! I'm very excited about it. I work at a place called the All Movie Guide and I put dibs on reviewing this movie when it was first announced and they didn't even have a lead yet. Audrey is sure to be perfect.

Did you see this? :) You are popular around the world!

Sally Jane said...

Thanks again for all of your comments. I couldn't agree more that this is perfect casting. Much better than when Jennifer Love Hewitt was cast to play Audrey Hepburn. Remember that?!

Cammila: What a cool job! You're definitely the right girl for that review.

Kat: OMG! Thank you so much for the link. It's so surreal sometimes to know that people all over the world are looking at this.

Ace said...

Hey, so I was wondering if you could give me some advice. My boyfriend and I are thinking about starting an ebay vintage store, any advice for me? I'd love to do it since I love thrifting so much but I'm not sure how to get started and make it successful.

hogan said...

Sally Jane said...

oh, this should be good

thesunshinegeek said...

so, first of all. i love your blog.
with that said, i was reading some of your older blogs, especially the ones about the vegan shopper in you... i'm a vegan so i understand how distressing it is to fall in love with the structure of a shoe and then realize that you never want to touch it because its "genuine leather." sucks. but the cheese habit is really easy to kick, just think of it as cow pus.. that will get you off of it really quickly

Nita-Karoliina said...

omg, i cant wait for this film to come! thanks for the info sally jane darling :)

Lena said...

great blog. i'm sure i'll check it out again some time.

AsianCajuns said...

Both movies we are extremely excited about! Can't wait to see your blog posts on them!

Forget Drew Barrymore. Have you seen the original documentary? It may change your mind as mental illness makes Little Edie a sad figure, somewhat manipulated, who died a lonely old lady. She wore the sweater on her head to cover her baldness. Her mother died of a blow to the head when her chair overturned. Hmmm.......

Señora Capone said...

I think Audrey would be perfect. I remember reading once that Demi Moore was set to play Coco, a few years back, I really can not imagine this casting.
