She plays the role of a modern day Coco Chanel -- a mysterious and independent woman that takes destiny into her own hands. Knightley personifies her strength and daringly shows her vein of irreverence.

"Coco Chanel's strong personality, her bold temperament and her charisma were impressive," states Knightley. "There was no one like her in the world...her impact went beyond fashion and transformed society by liberating women in both a real and figurative sense."

The film's soundtrack, "L-O-V-E" is performed by the soulful voice of Grammy award winner, Joss Stone. The score was originally composed by Bert Kaempfert and Milt Gabler in 1964 for Nat King Cole.
