Chanel’s Metiers d’Art collection showcased in Dallas wasn’t just the unveiling of the new collection. It was also the big reveal for Karl Lagerfeld’s first film, ‘The Return’, which details Coco Chanel’s comeback to fashion after not being so well received in Paris, but being well received in the Americas in the 50s. The film stars Geraldine Chaplain as Coco herself and Amanda Harlech as US Vogue editor Bettina Ballard. But one of the surprise roles was Sam, who played the British majordome (butler) that Coco wanted to marry for companionship. Speaking of the role, Sam said, “it was incredibly fun… But let’s just say I am not giving up the day job”.
