"L'ANNÉE DERNIÈRE À MARIENBAD", 1961

Alain Resnais’ 1961 film "L’année dernière à Marienbad" takes place inside a Baroque palace in Germany surrounded by French formal gardens. The silver lamé and white chiffon dresses worn by the leading actress, Delphine Seyrig, were designed by Gabrielle Chanel. For this role, she adopted the appareance of a short-haired brunette, not unlike that of Chanel’s founder.
