I rented CoCo Chanel and it was such an amazing movie!
The movie tells the story of CoCo (did you know her real name was Gabrielle?) before she was CoCo Chanel.
She was such a beautiful and strong woman...
... and revolutionized the fashion world for women. She wore pants (and the men were shocked when they could see her legs), hats that were not the normal frilly and feathery hats worn by most women, and wanted to make it on her own merit.
I was so inspired by this movie and her strong spirit. If you haven't watched the movie yet, it's worth the trip to Blockbuster.
On a semi-separate note, I love the new ad campaign for the Chanel Cocoon line
It's very Audrey Hepburn-esque. Love... Love... LOVE!!!!
