The Gospel According To Coco Chanel

Life Lessons from the World's Most Elegant Woman..

"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 philosphy on a range of universal themes - from style to passion, from money and success, to femininity and living life on your own terms.

'The Gospel According to Coco Chanel' is a captivating, offbeat look at style, celebrity, and self invention - all held together in Karen Karbo's droll Chanel style commentary and culled from an examination of Chanel's difficult childhood and triumphant adulthood, passionate love affairs, career choices, habits, eccentricities, and personal philosophies. Weaving Chanel's life story into chapter themes that subtly convey life lessons, and with Chelsey McLaren's charming illustrations, it will leave the reader utterly entranced with, and inspired by, Chanel's amazing individuality, confidence, and determination."
