The Gospel According to Coco Chanel: Life Lessons from the World's Most Elegant Woman (Hardcover)
A modern look at the life of a legendary fashion iconwith practical life lessons for women of all ages
Delving into the long, extraordinary life of renowned French fashion designer Coco Chanel, Karen Karbo has written a new kind of self-help book, exploring Chanels philosophy on a range of universal themesfrom style to passion, from money and success to femininity and living life on your own terms.
Born in 1883 in a poorhouse in southern France, Chanel grew up to be the woman who not only gave us the little black dress and boxy jackets, but also bestowed upon women a chic freedom that helped usher them into the modern era. Elegant, opinionated, and passionate, she was the only fashion icon among TIME magazines 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century.
The Gospel According to Coco Chanel is a captivating, offbeat look at style, celebrity, and self-inventionall held together with droll Chanel-style commentary and culled from an examination of Chanels difficult childhood and triumphant adulthood, passionate love affairs, and eccentricities.
Warner Brothers set to release a major motion picture on this subject,Coco Before Chanel, in Fall 2009.
