CHANEL’s 3.55 Podcast Takes Cannes

It’s at the heart of the French Riviera that CHANEL’s 3.55 Podcast comes alive for the second time and entrusts author and director Audrey Diwan with its antenna.

And so, Diwan welcomed actresses Marion Cotillard, Margot Robbie, Chloë Sevigny and Valerie Pachner as well as the director Lukas Dhont into the fabulous world of CHANEL, a world where fashion, art and cinema come together in the most fabulous of ways. The conversations revolved around the French Maison, with each person evoking CHANEL through a Gabrielle Chanel quote about creation or the importance of being oneself.

Looking back, one would definitely reminisce upon the one too many moments where Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld dressed numerous stars both on and off the screen. With CHANEL’s legacy imprinted on all of cinema’s red carpets, one would expect such a loyal following of celebrities, from director Sofia Coppola to numerous actresses such as Keira Knightley, Kristen Stewart, Vanessa Paradis, Penélope Cruz, Margot Robbie, Rinko Kikuchi, as well as Lily-Rose Depp.

Curious to listen to the podcasts? You’ll be happy to know that they are available on Apple Podcasts.
