This splendid book examines the legacy of Gabrielle ?Coco” Chanel, one of the twentieth century's great icons of style. While Chanel mythologized her glamorous life through relentless self-invention, the bare facts of her biography are no less worthy than her legend: born of a poor family in the provinces and raised in a convent, she was an entertainer and the mistress of men of impeccable social standing, and she began her career not as a dressmaker but as a milliner.
Chanel's enduring influence is necessarily based on the long shadow cast over fashion by her maison couture. Chanel examines the history of the House of Chanel both thematically and chronologically, introducing ideas and elements of biography as they were expressed in her collections. Period examples are juxtaposed with the work of Karl Lagerfeld, who, beginning in 1983, just over ten years after Chanel's death, reinvented and revolutionized the House's identity. It is in Lagerfeld's masterful and often irreverent interpretations of Chanel's work, as well as his mixing of influences from high and low culture, that the historic importance of Chanel and the resonance of her image as the independent, elegant modern woman are both defined and reasserted for the contemporary world.
French Revolution Relic Recently Discovered
During the 10 bloody years (1789-1999) of the French Revolution, beheadings were quite popular. We all know the fate of Marie Antoinette.
When a person’s head was lopped off by a guillotine, the severed head fell from the platform and landed in a straw basket below. This sight was a huge crowd pleaser.
It seems, one poor person’s severed head was forgotten after its beheading, and left to rot and decay in the basket it fell into. Amazingly, the basket survived better than the human head. The human head turned to skull.
Paris “Match” magazine reported that this relic of the French revolution was discovered by a famous skeleton, Beau Ness, who, while in Paris to do some modeling jobs for a famous fashion designer, discovered it when his iPhone fell from his hands, while he was Tweeting, and landed in a mud pile.
As Beau was digging in the mud to recover his iPhone, the skull, still in the basket, surfaced. He, at once, not recognizing the deceased, contacted the local Paris police.
A government team has already dated the skull and basket and they are both, indeed, from the French Revolution circa 1792. The team is now trying to find the identity of the victim.
While under investigation, the skull and basket are being housed in the warehouse of the Louvre.
Beau, in honor of his great discovery, was given the French La Vie Award at a recent dinner in his honor.

She was to revolutionize women's fashions during the 1920s by combining simple elegance and comfort in her designs, giving them immediate, widespread and lasting appeal. At the height of her glamorous career she managed four businesses, including the manufacture of her world famous perfume, Chanel No 5. --- Image by © Hulton-Deutsch Collection/CORBIS)

A remarkable testament to the energy of the Art Deco movement, Poiret's memoir recounts how his artistic flair, coupled with his exceptional and highly original cutting skills, enabled him to translate the spirit of the era into revolutionary garments. An astute businessman, Poiret describes the expansion of his fashion empire to encompass furniture, decor, and the first designer perfume, and recalls the extravagant Oriental garden parties at which his guests would parade his latest creations.
