GABRIELLE CHANEL
AND ACTRESSES ACROSS TIME

GABRIELLE CHANEL
AND ACTRESSES ACROSS TIME

Did Gabrielle hold actresses in such high esteem because she mastered the art of costumes or because, as a young girl, she wanted to become one herself? In 1910, one of the first women to wear her hats publicly was none other than the actress Gabrielle Dorziat. Twenty years later, the designer was a reference for the Seventh Art, in the US and elsewhere. Directors, including New Wave filmmakers, would come to Gabrielle Chanel to dress their heroines, among them Jeanne Moreau for Louis Malle’s “The Lovers” (1958) and Romy Schneider for “Boccaccio ‘70" (1962).

‘CAFÉ SOCIETY’
DRESSED BY CHANEL
‘CAFÉ SOCIETY’
DRESSED BY CHANEL
Gabrielle Chanel cultivated the lifestyle known as ‘Café Society’ in the 1920s, which became the eponymous title of a Woody Allen movie. To accurately recreate that era, head costume designer Suzy Benzinger delved into the archives of Mademoiselle’s creations and dressed the film’s actresses accordingly, including House ambassador Kristen Stewart.
In addition to the existing wardrobe and jewelry, the CHANEL ateliers created identical replicas of several dresses dating from that era. “I was lucky that CHANEL also agreed to give a new life to some jewelry inspired by pieces Gabrielle Chanel designed at that time […] All I needed to do was put an actress in one of those dresses, add a pair of CHANEL earrings or a brooch and it became instantly glamorous. That was the genius of Coco Chanel!” — Suzy Benzinger.
