Rated 5 out of 5 by Chanel I gave this to my mom for a gift.....the illustrations are beautiful and she said the book was a very fun read. She is still reading it. It also looks nice on her coffee table because the cover is so attractive. It was a great buy for her. January 18, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful! This has to be one of the best books I've ever read dealing with not only fashion but also Coco. It was fun and I never became bored with it. Upon starting it I soon realized that I would have to watch myself or I would end up reading the whole book within an hour or two! I made sure to pace myself only reading a chapter a night. I will being reading this book for sure more than just once and it is one of th ONLY books I will not be loaning out to any of my Friends November 11, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by A story of Chanel, not a style guide Chanel is a very interesting historical figure, so she's really a gem to read about. This book, however, is a mix of quasi-advice, the author's interested in a Chanel jacket, and the story of Chanel -- and it's mostly the latter. I received this book as a present (and enjoyed it), but I'm not keeping it on my shelf. I was hoping to use it as a reference book (a sort of "style gospel"), but nope, that's not really what it is. I read the story of Chanel, and on it has gone to the next reader. Seems a bit expensive for such a quick read -- I'd find this book at the library. January 12, 2013
