Last week Coco Chanel Bags German fashion magazine Brigitte announced plans to ban professional models from its pages. The move was taken in an attempt to address the size zero debate and has received a mixed response. This weekend Karl Lagerfeld added his two cents to the debate.Speaking to German online magazine Focus, Karl controversially commented. “No one wants to see curvy women. You've got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying that thin models are ugly.” He went on to explain that the world of fashion was about “dreams and illusions”.
The New Chanel Movie. After much talk and preproduction hell, the Coco Chanel Bags biopic, Coco Avant Chanel (Coco Before Chanel), is finally slated to begin filming. Unlike the Lifetime biopic on Coco, the Warner Bros. film painstakingly recreates Chanel's life. French gamine Audrey Tautou was cast last year to play the young designer, and she'll be clothed in costumes from the Chanel archive. Even Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld is set to supervise the recreation of key Coco pieces worn by the designer herself. The film will start a 12-week shoot on September 15 in Paris, aiming for a 2009 release. Possibly a lock on the best costume Oscar.
