le sigh

Last night Twin and I watched Coco Before Chanel - which was simply gorgeous.

I thought Audrey Tautou was perfect in the role of Coco, but it was the costumes and the cinematography that really blew me away. The contrast of her simple, elegant clothes against the highly feminine and overly decorated clothes of the day was really striking, plus there were moments in the film where the colors and textures were just breathtakingly beautiful.

Plus, it's just good to watch a movie in subtitles every once in a while...it keeps you on your toes! (And makes you want to learn more languages so you can sound chic like the French!)
