Real-world figures from the 20th-century fashion scene, Nazi Germany, and the French Resistance are coming to screen in Apple TV+’s The New Look. Inspired by true events and filmed on location in Paris, the 10-episode series “centers on fashion designers Christian Dior [Ben Mendelsohn], Coco Chanel [Juliette Binoche], and their contemporaries as they navigated the horrors of World War II and launched modern fashion,” as the streamer touts.
The only character with no apparent real-life parallel is Elsa Lombardi (played by The Newsroom’s Emily Mortimer), described as a “friend, confidante, and style inspiration” to Coco Chanel. That said, she shares a surname with Vera Bate Lombardi, who was a British socialite and associate of Chanel.
For the rest of the New Look characters, though, scroll down to see each one alongside the real deal.
