Keira Knightley stars in ‘Once Upon a Time…’

CHANEL has just released a preview from their new short film, Once Upon a Time…, with Keira Knightley starring as Coco Chanel. The film is set to debut in Singapore on May 8th in honor of the 100 year anniversary of Chanel’s first boutique opening in Deauville, France, which is the subject of the short film.

Karl Lagerfeld is the director and recruited a handful of famous faces and models to appear alongside Knightley. French actress Clotilde Hesme and models Stella Tennant, Lindsey Wixon, Lady Amanda Harlech, and Baptiste Giabiconi will also appear in the film.

This is not the first time Knightley and Lagerfeld have worked together. Lagerfeld personally picked Knightley to star as the face of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume and Knightley has publicly stated her admiration for the designer. She said:

“Karl’s amazing. He’s an avid reader, and he speaks about five different languages, so he’ll be rattling off in English to you and in French to someone else, and in German to someone else and then the phone rings and he’s speaking in Italian.”

The full film will be screened on May 8 in Singapore at Chanel’s cruise collection show.
