Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel was a pioneering French fashion designer whose modernist philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her an important figure in 20th-century fashion. She was the founder of one of the most famous fashion brands, Chanel. Her extraordinary influence on fashion was such that she was the only person in the couturier field to be named on Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century. This amazing woman is a founder of 'Little Black Dress', marinistic style and tan.
Audrey Tautou recently portrayed Coco Chanel in a movie called 'Coco before Chanel'. She was fantastic and if you haven't seen it, please do it.
