Amazing post, thank you so much.
Mademoiselle shows us the true meaning of "aging gracefully."
It's amazing how she managed to maintain her elegance all the time.
She's truly remarkable.

Thank you so much for posting these amazing pictures, I really enjoyed them and hadn't seen most of the pictures before. I am amazed at just how classic and eelegant Chanel managed to look from the beginning to the end.

On the hunt.....
thanks Mon for the many faces of coco chanel--the pictures are wonderful. though i have to confess after seeing her pics i feel a bit blasphemous for wearing the jackets with jeans. i wonder if she'd be horrified to see how some of us have watered down her brand by going so casual with it! but then again, i suppose she's always been the champion for the modern woman, who's now more casually dressed than before...
I believe Chanel was the first to use jersey fabric for womens clothing, prior to that, it was used for underwear only. Chanel wanted women to be modern and comfortable. So I think she would like the way Chanel is worn today, I think she was all about comfort.


Thanks Mon for all the great photos! :smile:
