coco avant chanel

fashion bloggers were all a-twitter with chanel's spring/summer 2010 show because of the appearance of lily allen. she came out of the floor towards the end of the country-bumpkin-inspired set and most likely sang her country-ish ditty with the nasty lyrics "not fair." well, over here, chanel will also be the talk of the town because "coco before chanel" (or in french, "coco avant chanel") will be opening this month! we can't wait. chanel is one of our all-time favorite designers. we admire the woman, the brand, the signature trademarks, the clothes, the karl meister, EVERYTHING chanel. ironically, we don't own anything chanel—except lipstick. and speaking of lipstick, if you want to get free tickets to the exclusive, by-invitation-only screenings, all you have to do is buy chanel makeup! simply purchase P3,500 worth of chanel products at any rustan's department store (the official and exclusive distributor of chanel fragrances and cosmetics in the philippines) and you will automatically receive two tickets to "coco avant chanel" at the schedule specified on the ticket. (isang perfume lang yan!) this promo will run from october 10-15, 2009. rustan's will be giving away 300 tickets—sounds like a lot but you never know! the movie stars the adorable audrey tautou—we're curious to see how she portrayed the street-smart gabrielle. the screening of this much-awaited film is hosted by rustan commercial corporation with the support of the french embassy, the peninsula manila, mandarin oriental suites, moët & chandon champagne, gateway cineplex, and power plant mall cinema. we don't have the exact dates and venues, so watch this space for an update...

Well, you know who else is in this movie? Gap "mystery man" Alessandro Nivola! He's the guy with soup strainer (aka mustache) in the shot with Audrey Tatou. He learned French for the movie! Audrey Tautou already know French, but she needed to learn how to be simpatica (or at least act simpatica for the movie. What happened to Amelie?!)

I knew it! I just knew details-later would comment on Alessandro! Hahaha!

I thought the movie was pretty interesting, but...well, better watch the movie.

Don't worry, I won't give any spoilers, fashpack. ;)

Oy vey - typo city! (Mental note: details later is not fit to make comments that early in the day! Especially when it's about Alessandro Nivola!)
