The Lifetime Channel Debuts Their Own Coco Chanel

Shirley MacLaine as Coco Chanel?

Ummmmmmm ... no! I adore Shirley, don't get me wrong. I really, truly do! But Shirley as Coco Chanel, I just can't grasp that idea. For goodness' sake, Lifetime, what we you thinking? Well, for those of you who may not have the same hang-ups as I do about who plays Coco, you may wish to tune in for Lifetime Channel's Coco Chanel.

About the Movie

Coco Chanel is the rags-to-riches tale charting the rise of one of the most influential fashion icons of the 20th century. From her humble childhood in a French orphanage, through her early days as a young dressmaker's assistant, to her passionate and tragic love with a dashing Englishman, and ultimately to her success as a pioneering icon, Coco Chanel is the story of a glamorous woman who was hard to love and harder to ignore. This epic true story stars Shirley MacLaine, Malcolm McDowell and Barbora Bobulova (young Coco).

I really don't know that I'll tune in for this version of her life, as tempting as it is. It will spoil all the surprises for when I watch what I'm terming "the real Coca movie", Coco Before Chanel, with Audrey Tatou due to debut sometime next year. For more information on about the Audrey movie, see my prior post. If you'd like to view a trailer or learn more about Lifetime's Coca Chanel movie, you may visit My Lifetime online.
