Coco Chanel was stunningly independent, beautifully feminine, and irresistibly desirable to men; most important, she was never afraid to be herself. No single designer has had as tremendous a hold on style as Chanel. Her vision produced the look that women want today. This book reveals why the impact of Chanel is felt generation after generation. A pioneer in an industry dominated by men, she turned her style into the revolutionary chic that set her fashion apart. Borrowing copiously from the wardrobes of her illustrious lovers (among them the Duke of Westminster and the Grand Duke Dimitri of Russia), Chanel took trousers, tweeds, riding clothes, cuff links, and even neckties, and cleverly transformed them into elegant women's wear. Readers will devour all the delectable stories behind such Chanel trademarks as fabulous fake pearls, minimalist hats, comfortable and beautifully structured suits, and legendary perfumes, and will marvel at more than 150 photographs and illustrations.
