MacLaine To Wear Chanel’s Suits


According to Variety, Lifetime has its designs on “Coco Chanel,” a miniseries featuring Shirley MacLaine (pictured) as the fashion icon. MacLaine will play the designer in her later years, as she set out to re-establish her reputation as a fashion trendsetter. Barbora Bobulova (“In Love and War”) will play the younger Chanel. The idea of MacLaine in the part doesn’t bother me for some reason. I mean, if Katharine Hepburn could croak her way through the role (she played the designer in the musical “Coco”), then I’m sure that Shirl will also survive the shearing.
