  1. People Magazine review:

    "At a time when France was the center of all that was wealthy, grandiose and fashionable," Gabrielle Chanel was born poor and skinny. Orphaned by age 12, she learned to sew in a convent, eventually getting a job with a tailor, where she realized her dreamsof glamour and transformed herself - along with couture. With its emphasis on prizing individuality, this is a delight - and a must for would-be designers among the Fancy Nancy set.
