Rags To Riches: Coco Chanel

Just in time for fashion week, Lifetime is premiering a movie on the life of designer Coco Chanel.
"Coco Chanel" is the rags-to-riches tale charting the rise of one of the most influential fashion icons of the 20th century. From her humble childhood in a French orphanage, through her early days as a young dressmaker's assistant, to her passionate and tragic love with a dashing Englishman, and ultimately to her success as a pioneering icon, "Coco Chanel" is the story of a glamorous woman who was hard to love and harder to ignore. This epic true story stars Shirley MacLaine, Malcolm McDowell and Barbora Bobulova.
Watch the movie trailer below. Coco Chanel airs Saturday, September 13th @ 8 PM ET/PT on Lifetime.
