Poster for Chic!

Starring Fanny Ardant, Marina Hands and Eric Elmosnino, this 2015 French fashion comedy centres around Hélène (Hands), a company executive that must act as a matchmaker for her world famous fashion designer boss, Alicia Rossi (Ardant). More

"Hélène, the ambitious director of the prestigious Ricosi fashion house, faces a deadline for the new collection just when the company’s designer and diva-in-chief Alicia Ricosi has fallen out of love - a condition that never fails to produce a creative slump. To avoid the imminent wrath of her neurotic CEO, Hélène and her staff make herculean efforts to find Alicia the new muse she needs to get her creative juices flowing again. Fate intervenes when Alicia unexpectedly cracks for Julien (Elmosnino), a seemingly unsophisticated garden designer whom Hélène has unfortunately just fired. To gain Julien’s cooperation and save the collection, Hélène will need to use all her powers of persuasion, even the ones she’s forgotten she had." (COLCOA French Film Festival)

However tempting it may be to salute any film audacious enough to punctuate its title, it must be conceded that Chic! doesn't deserve that punctuation mark.

Like a haute couture garment, "Chic!" is a finely crafted piece of work, a comedic romantic drama set within a frothy and sublimely funny caricature of the Parisian fashion world.

...the film features a few good moments of over-the-top parody but otherwise languishes in cliches while heading in mostly expected directions.
