This was my first Chanel read, and i would have to say I was quite disappointed. My disappointment wasn’t with the contents of the book, but rather the writing style. I found that the author spend too much time citizen Chanel for me to actually enjoy the book. I personally would not recommend this book to any of my peers, simply because I didn’t find it as interesting as I thought it would have been. I extremely enjoyed the little adventure stories of Chanel’s life. Even though I did not find it very interesting I’m sure many Chanel fans would find it a good read.

Chanel created a feminine character such as Paris had never before known.  --Maurice Sachs
For Andree -- if not the creation, the creator.

With thanks to my friend, Herve Mille.  Without him, without his help, this book could not have been written.

I first met Coco Chanel in 1958.  She was seventy-five years old -- a prodigy beatified.
