She is subsequently fired for daring to put a black model on the cover. Hanno gravitato attorno a Coco i grandi nomi del secolo Stravinsky, Daghilev, Cocteau, Churchill, etc Interesting book about Coco, interesting caractere with such a fascinating success, parcour and life. El face cronica extrem de detaliata a unei epoci. Misterioasa pentru apropiati, inversunata sa stearga orice urma a trecutului, a originilor ei, a familiei insesi, Gabrielle Chanel a fost de-a lungul intregii existente o femeie in afara tiparelor, o persoana in afara normelor intr-o societate conformista, si poate ca nu trebuie sa cautam altundeva secretul prodigioasei ei reusite. Pfew, this was a loooong book. This vandal or vandals, there may be more than one seems to have an obsession with trashing Chanel.

Nov 22, Andreea Ursu-Listeveanu rated it really liked it Shelves: O biografie foarte bine documentata, scrisa intr-un stil la fel de elegant ca cel al lui Coco Chanel, dar putin chinuitoare prin toate mini-biografiile personajelor din jurul eroinei.
Multe, multe detalii care la un moment dat m-au obosit, desi le-am inteles importanta pentru viziunea completa asupra vietii unei somitati care atat timp cat a trait a incercat sa-si ascunda trecutul si sa-si mascheze urmele.
Amanta a unui tar rus, a unui aristocrat englez, a unui poet si a unui ilustrator francezi O biografie foarte bine documentata, scrisa intr-un stil la fel de elegant ca cel al lui Coco Chanel, dar putin chinuitoare prin toate mini-biografiile personajelor din jurul eroinei.
Amanta a unui tar rus, a unui aristocrat englez, a unui poet si a unui ilustrator francezi, a unui spion si a unui ofiter SS germani, Coco Chanel i-a folosit pe toti pentru a se inspira din garderoba lor, dand nastere unor modele purtate de inalta societate de pe doua continente, unor creatii nemuritoare si unui nume care are astazi o prestanta chiar mai mare decat a avut pe vremea celei care il purta.
Si totusi, Coco Chanel, dincolo de succesul ei, de milioanele si de relatiile ei, a fost o femeie singura, neluata niciodata in casatorie, fara copii, fara prieteni la sfarsitul vietii, o femeie care nu s-a sfiit sa calce pe cadavre pentru a-si atinge scopurile, sa joace feste si sa iste scandaluri, sa spuna lucrurilor pe nume, sa infloreasca si sa distorsioneze realitatea.
O viata numai buna de pus in cuvinte pentru posteritate, cum ar spune Garcia-Marquez: I enjoyed this book but it was filled with unnecessary information. I felt like reading it throughout the end was so boring and long. Chanel had a interesting but sad life.
She strived for success in a fashion world and while she gained it, did she lose happiness along the way? Absent from family life she looked for happiness amongst men, which she was only to find for brief fluttering moments. An admirable lady for her shire determination to make something of herself.
The world identifies haute I enjoyed this book but it was filled with unnecessary information. The world identifies haute couture with her name, numerous men loved her and socialites admired her, yet she was to die alone. Making a final comeback in fashion and dedicating the last remains of her life to her work, left her solitary and low in spirits.
A remarkable life that went throughout all classes of society, was a life unforgettable. Chanel lives on through her fashion label and her presence is greatly seen within the label.

There were lots of terms that I had to google and I still don't know what they mean. There were photos to which the author is referring, from which she draws conclusions, but I wasn't able to locate them in order to validate the point.
Overall, this is a good book, well documented, with a good bal Pfew, this was a loooong book. Overall, this is a good book, well documented, with a good balance between author's opinions and facts. I was so disappointed reading this book. I'm fascinated by Chanel's story and this book didn't give me what I wanted.
It took so much time talking about other people's lifes. Her own story doesn't event start until 60 pages in and the second part of the book. So many digressions made the timeline a bit confusing.
And the author took so much pleasure in quoting things that weren't even of the time. That's why it took me so long to read and I finished it because I wanted it to be over before the e I was so disappointed reading this book.

Sep 09, Deb rated it it was amazing Shelves: An excellent account of the life of Gabrielle Chanel. Edmonde does not gloss over anything. The good, bad and at times downright despicable aspects of her personality are all explored to the fullest. Written with sensitivity to the subject, as well as to others who knew her and were alive at the time of writing the book was published in , and with a mix of wicked humour, this book is a must read for anyone interested in the woman behind the legend.
Mar 02, Ana rated it liked it. Jan 25, Kate rated it really liked it. It was extremely interesting to read about Chanel's life, it was astounding. However, author of the book is a graphomaniac with special love for long complicated sentences, which make you forget the start by the time you finish them. Sometimes going into too much details as well, which were either author's fantasy or guess.
Pretending to know Coco Chanel's thoughts much better than she could, which was sometimes annoying. Aug 13, Andra rated it it was ok. Nu pot spune ca nu mi-a placut cartea pentru ca viata lui Coco Chanel ar fi fost plictisitoare. Vorbim aici despre un icon al vremurilor noastre, o femeie care a trait o viata extrem de interesanta, care a modelat omenirea dupa bunul plac, intr-un fel. El face cronica extrem de detaliata a unei epoci.
Si asta m-a plictisit groaznic pe alocuri si parca a furat din frumusetea povestii ei. Interesting book about Coco, interesting caractere with such a fascinating success, parcour and life.
The writing in the first half of the book makes makes it more difficult to read than the second half which becomes more and more fluid and the story more and more fascinating. Jul 21, Susan Lundstrum rated it it was ok. A interesting look at the life of a strong, talented , exceptional women who changed the fashion world.

Leider sehr langatmig und schwierig geschriebene Biographie dieser interessanten und kontroversen Person. I am not a big fashionista, nor will I be, so I was not particularly interested in Coco Chanel - the fashion influencer.
However, having received this book as a gift, I dived right into it, hoping that the exciting life of Coco would entrance me and make me finish the book in no time. Perhaps the parents married in ? Sharkford Coco Chanel and her sister were born as illegitimate children. Their parents got married in after the birth of their second child Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel. What on earth has happened to the content of this page?
Despite my relative lack of knowledge about Chanel, even I know this is not the correct biography. Ingvar A shocking amount of this article seems to be based on a very recent book by Vaughn, and the quality of that book, at least according to the very few reviews on Amazon, seems dubious at best.
I dont know that i can trust what i read here. This article was automatically assessed because at least one article was rated and this bot brought all the other ratings up to at least that level.
BetacommandBot Situated in the heart of Brittany it wasn't long before the shop went out of business. With the aid of Balsan and another rich lover Arthur "Boy" Capel d. Her hats were worn by celebrated French actresses, which helped to establish her reputation.
No mention of the circumstances of her death here Questions--as I understand it, the Wertheimer family 'owned' Chanel lock and stock; therefore some business history might be an important addition rather than stating blandly that she was 'wealthy.
I understand he was a military attache in the German Embassy, which isn't necessarily being a spy. Since the French government accommodated the German forces in a corridor through France to the Channel ports to guard against a British attack, and Paris was an 'open city,' for whom and on whom would Dincklage have been 'spying'?
The Bolshevik terrorists in Paris who took over and arrested Chanel after the Allies occupied the city? If so, would that be 'spying' or 'Intelligence'? And in para. German officers and officials stayed at the Ritz, but management was in charge of the hotel, with a philosophy, being French, of whoever can pay can stay. So please clarify why a world renowned French woman in a residential suite at a world renowned French hotel would have any need whatever for 'protection.
Wikipedia's Playboy link says Hefner's first edition of Playboy was published December ; I'm guessing the third issue came along sometime in If I am missing the obvious please forgive me and set me straight. Thanks for your help! The article on suntans says that suntans first became fashionable because of her, and I saw the same claim on a radio program recently, but it is mentioned nowhere in this article. The article states: I saw no such hint. Davidjxyz Davidjxyz]] talk Gabrielle Chanel's birth certificate appears with an "S".
No one knew how to spell Chasnel so the mayor improvised and recorded [her name] without an "s," making it Chanel. This is contradictory. It would make sense only if her father was Chasnel rather than Chanel. So is her father's name wrong or is the story spurious? Before the 's, sun tans were thought of as being something only the lower classes did.
Then Coco accidentally got a suntan and it caught on like wildfire. To this day, the fad of suntanning is alive and well, even though prior to Coco it was thought of as being completely tasteless. Maybe this fact does not deserve a mention, but it seems important enough to include in the article to me. See the wikicode for the references to this: Please feel free to add this to the article if you think it worthwhile of including.
Unfortunately, I'm about to head out on long term leave and so cannot edit the article myself. The citations attributed to "Tilar" should be corrected to read "Mazzeo," because it is the custom to cite the author's family name, not given name. HIM Nguyen talk Cite 26 Mazzeo. A future task. For the second time, some individual has made changes, usually only by inserting a single word of an inflammatory nature into existing, referenced entries, leading the reader to assume the entire statement is true.
Only yesterday someone edited the section on Chanel's early life to infer that her father sent her out to sell her body upon the death of her mother at age 12, This vandal or vandals, there may be more than one seems to have an obsession with trashing Chanel. The documented facts of Chanel's life stand on their own.
No one needs to fabricate negative, or sensationalist information. The truth of who Chanel was as a human being is damning enough and needs no embellishment. She was a monster. Hey, you out there Betempte talk There seems to be a lot of emphasis in this article on Vaughan's intepretation of Chanel.
I also have to note that whilst I'm sure his investigations into her life are sound, Vaughan appears to have an appalling grasp on fashion history and is too credulous regarding Chanel's fashion inventions. If the fashion notes in here represent Vaughan's writing, then he is neither a credible nor a reputable source for the fashion side, worse and sloppier than most fashion journalists!
For example, Chanel invented ethnic influences? Easily disproved by a quick Google - I've already quickly cleaned up and referenced that section and need to look into referencing and cleaning up the rest Mabalu talk I've removed some of the aggrandized wording, which I believe prompted insertion of "text box alert" on the top of this page.
Thank you to Mabalu! We lost one not very good image but got a much better one in its place, thanks to your contribution. The new image is sharp, and illustrates the text marvelously.
Again, many thanks! This is for you! Could we have some consistency on the address of the Paris boutique, variously 21 rue Cambon vs 31 rue Cambon? Macdonald-ross talk This article is, in my opinion, written in a way that is unacceptable for any fact-based encyclopedia. Here is an example of the exaggerated, seemingly fan-written passages, taken just from the lead:. Her indefatigable energy and talent in her chosen trade combined ultimately to achieve both the business success and social prominence she had so striven to realize.
Her professional life brought her in contact with the upper echelons of society and personages noteworthy in the arts. She herself became an art patron, supplying funds to support individual artists and their work. This type of passage might be suitable on a fansite or opinionated biography, but not on a encyclopedia that relies on a neutral viewpoint especially in articles about specific people.
And, as I said, this is just from looking at the lead, the entire article is interspersed with this kind of language. I tagged the article for examination, but it was removed only a few hours later, so I am not sure what to do at this point. Do any other editors have some input? Stelpa talk Sorry, I'm not a Wikipedia regular, so I know I'm not doing this right. However, I wanted to point a few things out: It should be "Vaughan. I've corrected the misinformation in the paragraph about Diaghilev, the Ballets Russes, Stravinsky, and Chanel.
I've also set the final couple of sentences in "comment" protection as they are clearly inaccurate. Diaghilev was not a choreographer; Nijinsky was confined to a mental institution during the period it is suggested Chanel worked with him! In the next day or two, I'll provide corrected information about Chanel's participation as costume designer of Ballets Russes projects.
Yankeecook talk Stelpa has already remarked on the neutrality of the article as a whole, which I would agree with, but one particular sentence in the summary leapt out to me as problematic. Yesterday, I marked the following sentence as not being written from a neutral point of view. It's since been undone by Mabalu , so I decided to elaborate on it here.
However, Chanel's highly competitive, opportunistic personality led her to make questionable life choices which have generated controversy around her reputation, particularly her behaviour during the German occupation of France in World War II. I take issue with the characterization of her actions being due to her "highly competitive, opportunistic personality", coupled with the phrasing that it was this personality that "led" to her behavior.
For the information that the sentence in presenting, namely the controversy that Chanel generated by her actions, attributing those actions to seemingly positive aspects of her "personality" comes across as apologetic, toning down the serious nature of those actions and skirting past claims of antisemitism.
To be fair, the matter is detailed later in the article, but the summary should be held to the highest standards. However, Chanel made questionable life choices which have generated controversy around her reputation, particularly her actions during the German occupation of France in World War II. Lordcheeto talk If Hans Gunther von Dincklage is a baron in the entry for Controversy , shouldn't he also be a baron elsewhere.
I noticed the dissimilarity in the first paragraph under World War II. I added it and it was renewed. In terms of human cost it's at least as relevant as her fashion work. Chanel had more than an association with the Nazis. Chanel had an affair with a German military officer, Hans Gunther von Dincklage. She got special permission to stay in her apartment at the Hotel Ritz. After the war ended, Chanel was interrogated about her relationship with von Dincklage, but she was not charged as a collaborator.
Churchill stepped in and protected her. Many of the French public were outraged, somewhat self-righteously; she had to move to Switzerland. French collaboration was rife; collaboration was across the board and implicated members of the British Royal family. I have just added archive links to one external link on Coco Chanel.

According to the page on the Forbes , it was first published in , so it's too late, but in the list there were only 13 billionaires. I was alive in and I remember a commonly-circulated list of billionaires and it had less than 10 names, people like J. Paul Getty and H. Did someone get sloppy and misread the value of the Wertheimers' stake as the end-of-life net worth of Coco Chanel?
I've seen similar sloppy assertions in taking the combined worth of the Walton heirs TODAY and asserting it as the net worth of Sam Walton when he died long ago. Look at the figures for the Gettys, Hunts, Waltons. I mean, really. Do your homework. F31E talk From the Summary: That's a bold statement to leave unattributed - needs some links to sources making this claim for this line to be credible. The link of the first citation in the reference list is broken.
The page cannot be found. This citation is for Chanel's date of birth, and the date she died. Here is a link that can replace the broken link with the same information found. I have just modified one external link on Coco Chanel.
