Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel

"Once Upon a Time", new Coco Chanel short film, starring Keira Knightley as the celebrated designer was screened for the first time in Singapore on May 8, 100 years after Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel's first boutique opened in the French seaside of Deauville - a subject that forms the focus of the film.

The film was directed by Karl Lagerfeld and also features French actress Clotilde Hesme, as well as models Stella Tennant, Lindsey Wixon and Jamie Bochert, Caroline de Maigret, Lady Amanda Harlech and her daughter, Tallulah. The Chanel helmer also recruited his favourite male models to appear in the project, including Baptiste Giabiconi, and Brad Kroenig and his son, Hudson.

In character as Coco, the actress stands next to Clotilde in the next scene, wearing a buttoned-up white shirt and suit jacket.

Her expression changes as she spots a girl wandering past the window wearing a cream lace gown and wide-brimmed hat, clearly entranced by her style.

The story is centred around Coco's meeting with French actress Eve Lavallière, played by Harlech, who is rumoured to have been the first woman in French society to cut her hair short.
