Product description

Review

"The most thoroughly fleshed out of the new books about Chanel. . . . Ms. Chaney takes care to give detailed context all the way along, but not so much that she pulls us off the path. One appreciates her elegant tutorials." -- The Wall Street Journal

"Stuffed with just-so details as it sketches the arc of a remarkable life." -- Harper's Magazine

"Relying on newly released love letters, private diaries, and reminiscences . . . and using Chanel's own words wherever possible, Chaney reveals the woman behind the icon. . . . Most important here is Chaney's insight into Chanel's role in creating the modern, independent woman." -- Library Journal

"Chaney's engagement with her subject is evident throughout, and her exhaustive research into Chanel's life--especially its darker, more enigmatic corners--and the cultural history she so profoundly impacted make the book as fascinating as it is informative." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Deeply researched, Chaney's enthralling biography unearths previously unavailable sources to reveal the elementally conflicted yet unequivocally gifted woman whose name will always be synonymous with sophistication and originality." -- Booklist
