    Delving into the long, extraordinary life of renowned French fashion designer Coco Chanel, Karen Karbo has written a new kind of book, exploring Chanel’s philosophy on a range of universal themes—from style to passion, from money and success to femininity and living life on your own terms.

    Story

    This was a horrible way to tell the great story of Coco Chanel. The author jumps around from different points in Chanel's life, making it hard to follow. She attempts to make modern day comparisons and connections (frenemies? internet porn?!), but they just come across unneeded. She also follows her own hunt for a Chanel jacket that at almost all points through the book leaves me thinking "who cares?" I really didn't like this book - I wish I had spent time and money on a book that just focuses on Coco Chanel, without silly embellishments.
