Coco Chanel

Today i watched a movie called "Coco before Chanel" in French (but of course English subtitles, otherwise i would not have under stood a thing) , it's about Gabrielle Coco Chanel and her life before she became a legendary fashion designer, it was very fascinating. Honestly as much as i adore fashion i never knew much about  Chanel other than her clothing were elegant and classy and continue to be. I learned a lot about her by watching this movie. Before Chanel became a designer, i never would have guessed she had a manly style, never wore corsets, and did horse back riding! (which i used to do when i was younger, its so fun and i miss it dearly!) how cool is that?!?! i love her for being an independent, strong woman, especially during the 1900's! after i watched the movie i actually did more research on her and plan on checking out a book from the library. I obviously enjoyed the movie otherwise i wouldn't have done this post! i definitely recommend it. I could go on but i don't want to spoil anything about the movie or Chanel (if you didn't know much about her already) i hope you enjoyed :)

She was a strong advocate of simpler, more practical clothes for women, so yes I knew about her androgynous style! :)
