After watching Coco Before Chanel, I felt compelled to do a little research on the woman that had such an influence on beauty and style. From perfume to suits to purses, Chanel is still one of the most coveted labels of women around the world. This pioneering French designer was named one of "Time Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century." Agree with them or not, here are some quotes from the woman who helped build a fashion and lifestyle empire that lives on to this day.
"A girl should be two things, classy and fabulous."
"A woman has the age she deserves."
"A women who doesn't wear perfume has no future."
"Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door."
"Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress."
"Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future."
"Fashion fades, only style remains the same."
"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
