I love Coco Chanel. She has brought so much to the fashion world, being the most influential woman in fashion of the 20th century and a huge inspiration to young people today.
She was one of the first women to wear trousers, cut her hair and reject corset, yet was respected and admired by women all over the country. She created a whole new look for women of the 20th century. Coco's signiture bobbed hair and bright red lipstick has made a trace in the fashion world for generations to come.
Coco was a beautiful woman and dated some of the most influencial men of her time, one of which was Duke of West Minster. When she was asked why she did not want to marry him, she answered, 'There have been several Duchesses of West Minster. There is only one Chanel.'
Coco before Chanel was made in 2009, a film telling the story of Coco's rise from a poor begining to the heights of fashion. I highly reccomend it!
So what do you think? Do you think Coco Chanel is the biggest fashion figures, and if not, who is? Post a comment below:)
