Who was Coco Chanel and why has her name and life left such an impact on the world? Not the most beautiful woman in the world, yet she redefined beauty. She liberated women from the constraints of corseted clothing and introduced and made popular a more casual chic style for us women. In that sense we all owe a big thank you to the one and only Coco right?! Did you know that she invented the first ever "little black dress" in 1926, she loved pockets and almost all her collections included pockets of some sort. Oh and one more cool little fact, she made the tan popular after returning from a cruise to Cannes with a sunburn. Coco lived and breathed fashion and built an empire from nothing into what it is today. Coco you were one super cool women.
