COCO BEFORE CHANEL

FILMS Seems like there has been a trend in films about fashion lately. Coco Before Chanel is a film featuring Audrey Tautou about the life and passions of Coco Chanel.

GEORGIA O’KEEFFE

FILMS I’m familiar with O’Keeffe’s paintings. However, I really don’t know much about her as a person…only that she lived to age 99!! Lifetime will be featuring a movie about her life September 19th at 9pm. Should be interesting. Conveniently, the SFMOMA is having an O’Keeffee exhibit.
