Chanel Conquers Lifetime with Shirley McLaine

“When Audrey Hepburn and I were making the movie ‘The Children’s Hour’, she and I talked a lot about fashion designers because I didn’t know much about fashion,” says Shirley MacLaine. “She told me that I should play Coco Chanel. I disagreed because Chanel was little and scrunched-over and very short. And she said, ‘No, the spirit of the woman matches your spirit’.”

MacLaine plays the older Coco Chanel in Lifetime’s original movie. Barbora Bobulova plays the young Coco, who was named Gabrielle. Bobulova did a fantastic job as Gabrielle, showing the drive to become the ambitious designer Coco, a nickname she got for a prank.
