One of my all time favorite movies is Amelie which if you have never seen, you must. It is a masterpiece and so very beautiful! I adore the talented, impish Audrey Tatou as much as I do the original Audrey, Hepburn. I consider her a true gamine and am thrilled to announce that Chanel has had the good sense to have chosen Tatou as their newest face.
Just as exciting is that her 2009 commercial will be directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. This is the third collaboration for Jeunet and Tatou; they worked together in the films Amélie and A Very Long Engagement. I had also heard that Anne Fontaine had chosen Tatou to plan the young Mademoiselle in a a project which was supposed to begin filming this year. I haven't heard anything else on this - if you have please let me know!
