Happy Birthday Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel

Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel, one of the most influential icons of all time, was born on this day, August 19.

As well as the box-cut bouclé jackets, Breton T-shirts, camellia brooches and Chanel No.5, she was also known for wise and witty quotes:

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous”

Fashion fades, only style remains the same.

and my favourites;

“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”

“The best things in life are free. The second best are very expensive.”

To celebrate this day, here is a look a a few of my favourite Chanel looks including Nicole Kidman at the 2004 Academy Awards.
