Coco Chanel. Photographed by Cecil Beaton 1937
|In 1918, when Coco Chanel presented her first collection of gowns, she heralded a new type of glamour|
that became instantly classic. Her vision was modern, streamlined and elegant.
Like Chanel, who broke every rule, classic glamour doesn't adhere to strictures.
Yet you know it the instant you see it.
And what might be trashy on someone else (marabou feathers, sequins, an asymmetric dress) is pure
perfection on those who , thanks to their confidence and inherent style, personify glamour.
For further instruction, take a tip from Chanel herself, and her immortal line:
" A girl should be two things- classy and fabulous,"
A perfect definition of classic glamour.
|" Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit|
the face you have at fifty."
"I am not young but I feel young.The day I feel old, I will go to bed and stay there.
J'aime la vie!
I feel that to live is a wonderful thing."
August 18 1883 - January 10 1971
