this is what happens with a lot of getty images, most members cannot see them if they are hotlinked

what you should do is save them on your computer and attach them to your post

Coco was definetily something. I always look through the books written about her and gasp when I see old photographs of her...She looks divine, especially when she was younger.
Not sure if I liked her style so much when she was older, when Chanel made its comeback.
