We've been intrigued by reports of Karl Lagerfeld's silent movie tribute to Chanel since we heard about it, and this sneak peek makes it look bizarrely awesome. The film chronicles the love affair of a young Coco Chanel (played by model Edita Vikeviciute) and Duke Dimitri Pavlovich, in authentic 20s style. The full short will be shown in Paris this week alongside Chanel's Paris-Moscow pre-fall 2009 collection. Click the image to see a clip. [Fashion Week Daily via YouTube]
