The full version of Karl Lagerfeld's latest short film for Chanel, called Once Upon a Time, has finally landed online. The film, which stars Keira Knightley as a young Gabrielle Chanel, tells the story of one of the designer's first shops, which she opened in the French seaside resort town of Deauville in 1913. In the film, which will be screened at Chanel's Resort 2014 presentation in Singapore this month, Chanel is helped along by her aunt Adrienne — played by actress Clotilde Hemse — as she caters to wealthy clients like Jacqueline Forzane (played by Ashleigh Good) and Ida Rubinstein (portrayed by Caroline de Maigret). When Vita Sackville-West — played by Saskia de Brauw — looks through the windows of the store toward the end of the film, she asks, "I wonder what it will be in 100 years from now?" Take a look at what it was like 100 years ago, in the video below. . . .
Remember that ethereal short film/campaign video/dream sequence from Free People that starred the mega adorable Charlie from Girls (aka to the non-obsessed as actor Christopher Abbott)? Well, the US boho emporium has made a prequel which follows the semi-single (sniff) Sheila to Rio for a girls weekend away prior to their NYC reunion. Cue amazing scenery, hot Latin men (specifically one real life professional polo player by the name of Diego Osorio) and some pretty incredibly vacay threads. Word on the street is that Free People is now available in Oz at Myer in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as via their website. Oh, and the odd blurry-lensed flashback to cutie-pie Charlie Christopher. If you're yearning for an exotic getaway with the girls, let this serve as your motivation to get booking. Rio, here we come!

Keira Knightley wed James Righton in France over the weekend, and we were surprised to see her dress of choice for the occasion. Despite rumours that she was wearing Chanel, the bride chose to rewear a piece from her own wardrobe to walk down the aisle — a sweet strapless tulle dress reportedly by Rodarte. The first time we spotted her in this dress was at a pre-BAFTA bash in 2008! Watch on to hear the rest of the story, and let us know what you think about Keira's choice below.
The annual White House Correspondents' Dinner took place in the US capital over the weekend, and Hollywood's finest made their way to the East Coast to show their support.

The two masked French gentlemen who make up the iconic band known as Daft Punk are the latest musicians to star in Saint Laurent's Music Project campaign. The band unveiled details about its upcoming album, Random Access Memories, in a video screened Friday night at Coachella. In it, they, singer Pharrell Williams, and guitarist Nile Rodgers are seen wearing sequined tuxedo jackets — Saint Laurent Black Glitter "Le Smoking" Jackets, in official parlance — created by Hedi Slimane. On Saturday, the house released photos of the duo wearing the jackets and uploaded another video to YouTube that features additional photos of the performers in their sparkly stage wear. Daft Punk has been working with Saint Laurent since Slimane's debut collection for the house, which was shown last October. The duo created a 15-minute soundtrack for Slimane's Spring 2013 show. They join Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love, and a number of other musicians who've been featured in the Music Project campaign.
