“French chic at the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Coco Before Chanel’Anne Fontaine and Audrey Tautou – “Coco Before Chanel” Los Angeles PremiereThe fashion would have to be amazing. Anything with Chanel in the title must be genius.But what’s more genius and relevant to updating your look is the very simple and understated glamour of director Anne Fontaine and star Audrey Tautou worn at the Los Angeles premier of “Coco Before Chanel”. Both woman have mastered basic black that is anything but boring in a timeless style that is gorgeous on a woman of any age.While every wannabe fashionista has been having sleepless nights as what she should wear for Fashion Week, some know that it’s the easiest to be simple, smart, and chic. Style that comes naturally to the wearer is always the most covetable.Let’s take the unmatched suit of Anne Fontaine. We love the structured menswear shoulders and subtle texture of her double breasted jacket. Worn in contrast over voluminous pants that drape to a tapered ankle. Add an untucked soft menswear crisp white shirt. Simple sandals and delicate earrings add the right touch of femininity to her elegant menswear look.Audrey Tautou can wear her shaped little black dress to the office or a premiere– that is exactly what makes this classic knee-length style an investment piece that you can wear for seasons to come. A gorgeous clutch bag, skinny belt, and round-toed pumps are super classic and stylish, but the moxie comes from the delicate feather worn in her pixie haircut.When it comes to style that endures time, simple, well-cut classics will always look right.>> Watch my video about How to Accessorize a Black DressHere are some more styles that fit the bill on basic black French Chic:”Published on September 10, 2009
