Style Icon: Coco Chanel

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”

Coco Chanel not only created incredible and beautiful fashion for women but also demonstrated how to wear her creations with style and poise.

Chanel might have dressed primarily for comfort but in doing so made sure that she was stylishly and elegantly dressed too. She removed corsets, ribbons, flowers and other frivolities from women’s clothing. Indeed she is quoted as saying,

“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”

The Chanel label continues to design and make beautiful clothes today.

Coco’s style has been immortalised on the big screen many times but most recently and my favourite was last year’s Coco Avant Chanel starring Audrey Tautou (who will be appearing in this Style Icon series shortly).
