INT. MILLINERY SHOP. EARLY 1900's PARIS - DAY
In the workroom of her shop, COCOA CHANEL painstakingly creates an evening gown by hand; each stitch a labor of love. Her ASSISTANT appears.
A very important patron is here to see you.
Cocoa abandons the gown to tend to the mysterious patron. As she approaches a lovely NOBLEWOMAN,
Madam Godiva. Bonjour. How may I assist you?
Bonjour Cocoa. I need something very different for a special occasion.
Of course. What is the occasion. A ball, the theatre...
I'm to ride on a horse naked through the marketplace of my realm...
for a worthy cause, of course.
To be naked, it must be.
Isn't it wicked?
(shakes her head)
But Madam, I clothe, not unclothe.
There must be something you can do.
Cocoa ponders her dilemma earnestly and sincerely. Her glance falls upon a stack of pretty boxes. She rushes to the stack, scoops up a box, then returns.
May I make a suggestion?
Yes, of course.
Give these to the people as you ride passed.
You will have pleased those you shock.
Godivas, Madam. You will be the crown jewel.
Yes, I see. I shall be as tempting as chocolates.
Champagne to celebrate?
As they sip champagne and share another box of Godivas,
Madam, may I ask? What is this cause?
To lower my people's taxes.
A very noble cause. But why naked?
It was my husband's idea. He said he would lower them if I rode...
(reaches behind her)
Here's another box, just for him.
FADE TO BLACK
