Review

Fascinating. . . . Intriguing reading. . . . In researching this book, Justine Picardie has shown as much doggedness in uncovering her subject s life as Chanel did in disguising it. --Edwina Ings-Chambers, Sunday Times"

I thought there was nothing more to say about Coco Chanel, but Picardie s recent book does a great job of depicting a difficult and compelling 20th-century icon. --Kate Betts, The Week"

Gripping. . . . In the deftest prose, Picardie lots one of the most extr4aordinary lives of the 20th Century. The book is lavishly illustrated, too, with images of iconic outfits and intimate photos from Chanel s private albums. --Mail on Sunday"

Elegant. --Frances Wilson, Daily Telegraph"

Captivating. . . . Wonderful photos and illustrations. --Dianne Dempsey, The Age"

Picardie s biography on Chanel is not only stunningly presented it features photos, pictures and fashion drawings by Karl Lagerfeld on almost every page but brilliantly written. --Fiona Purdon, Courier-Mail (Australia)"
