6 FACTS ABOUT GABRIELLE COCO CHANNEL
Although many people known the basic story of Coco Chanel and her rise to fame, there are many things about Coco Chanel that most people do not know. Her name is still a symbol of high fashion and she changed the game of clothing back in the day. And her perfume is one of the most popular fragrances today, even almost 100 years after it was created. You can always see how her experiences shaped her clothing and accessories. So behold, some fun facts about Coco Chanel. And remember: “A girl should always be two things, classy and fabulous.”
Among the many facts about Coco Chanel... one is that she made the tan popular. After her trip to Cannes, she came back looking sun kissed and fabulous!!! And Because of her popularity in Paris at the time, women wanted to emulate her and look like her. After her tan skin became known, having sun kissed skin was all the rage in Paris in that time. This was unusual because up to that time, having pale skin was more common and considered more elegant than tan skin.
One of the most fun facts about Coco Chanel is that she had Chanel No. 5 sprayed throughout her home. I am not sure why, but I love this fact. It says to me that Chanel enjoyed the finer things in life and wanted to be surrounded by elegance. But not only that, she wanted a constant reminder of her hard work.!! That's a great trick! BTW..!!
She was born Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel after being born in Samur. When she grew up she started a career as a singer. Because her most popular song was called “Qui qu’a vu Coco,” she quickly got the nickname Coco. And that name stuck with her throughout her fashion career..!!
