She Should Coco: Keira Knightley To Star In Karl Lagerfeld's Coco Chanel Movie


Keira Knightley Karl Lagerfeld COCO CHANEL

Keira Knightley is among a host of stars due to star in a short film about the iconic fashion designer COCO CHANEL. The movie, is being created to mark the 100th anniversary of the French fashion house Chanel and will be directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the label’s current creative director, The Independent reports. Lagerfeld and Knightley share a mutual respect for each other and the designer often cites Keira as a muse.

The movie will be set on the French seaside town of Deauville, where the very first Chanel boutique opened up in 1913, after being financed by Captain Arthur Edward ‘Boy’ Capel. The crew were ordered to build “detailed retro sets” to recreate the era. The 27 year old actress is already a Chanel favourite, having fronted their Coco Mademoiselle perfume campaign, though the ad was pulled for being ‘overtly suggestive.’ She will be joined by Stella Tennant, Tallulah Harlech, Clotilde Hesme and Brad Kroenig in the promotional movie. It’s due to be screened at Chanel’s Cruise Show in Singapore.

Keira spoke about Lagerfeld last year, saying “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 Italian.”

Was Keira Knightley's Chanel Advert Really Sexually Suggestive?


Keira Knightley COCO CHANEL

A perfume advert featuring British actress Keira Knightley has been banned during children's television programming because it is deemed too sexually suggestive. Why fragrance giant Chanel is advertising its products during ad breaks for children's television remains to be seen, though the Advertising Standards Authority ruled that its commercial for the Coco Mademoiselle ad was unsuitable for younger viewers.

According to the BBC, the watchdog investigated after a complaint was made from a viewer who saw the ad during the film Ice Age 2. Chanel said a degree of sexual charge was common in its perfume ads, though the commercial in question shows Keira Knightley being photographed on a bed while a photographer unzips her clothes. She is then shown dressed only in a bed sheet and crawling towards him before lying down. A spokesperson for the Advertising Standards Authority said they decided it was unsuitable for children. "We therefore concluded that the ad was inappropriately scheduled and an ex-kids restriction should have been applied to prevent the ad from being broadcast in or around children's programming," they said.

The watchdog ruled that Chanel must not broadcast the Keira Knightley ad again around programmes of particular appeal to children.
