Oh, Lifetime. It's like you read our minds.
Shirley MacLaine stars as Coco Chanel tonight on Lifetime! Best. Miniseries idea. Ever. Aren't you glad you read StyleList on Saturdays? Set your Tivos. This is gonna be awesome on an Ice Capades scale. We have triple-salchow hopes.
Tiffany wrote about it way back in March, and the day has finally arrived. 8pm ET/PT. This is either going to be amazing, disastrous, or BOLTH. Our knees are bouncing excitedly under our desks.
A little background information:
Shirley loved the idea of playing Coco Chanel:
"I think we're both colorful. I think we're both rude. I think we're both spontaneous. We both can't hold back what we feel to be our honest opinion. And I think we both have talent." - Lifetime
In fact, it was playing Chanel that got Shirley into the idea of designing her own jewelry, Chakra Sky Jewelry.
The miniseries also stars Malcolm McDowell and Slovakian actress Barbora Bobulova (as the young Coco). Watch it!
