Keira Knightley Is Coco Chanel In The Cutest Fashion History Ever

Here is the most whimsical little snippet of a stylish thing you’ll see all day: Chanel has released the teeniest, tiniest preview of the upcoming short film “Once Upon a Time…”, which stars Keira Knightley as Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in 1913 France. The short, directed by Karl Lagerfeld in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the first-ever Chanel store, depicts Coco’s early beginnings as proprietress of a sweet boutique in the lovely seaside town of Deaufort. And even with just this little sneak peek to go on, it is really stinkin’ cute.

In these few moments from the short, Coco (Keira) and a friend (Clotilde Hesme) bid a black-and-white hello to some friends in a classic car, while the fashion-minded denizens of Deauville wander up and down the most charming street ever to exist on film. Also, there’s an incredible hat! Where is this all going?! We don’t know, but it won’t be long before the mysteries of this stylish mini-movie are solved, since “Once Upon a Time…” debuts in its entirety May 8 on
