^ Yes, I love that book- it is so well written and you can really see what she was like- maybe not the nicest person, but such a genius- she really started with nothing at all and changed the entire world of fashion- and then she came back in the 50s and did it again!

Amazon lists that book as out of print. How old is it? I would love to read a decent biography of her.

So it's AXEL Madsen and not ALEX Madsen. That helps. Thanks for the link!

vogue.co.uk have a super exclusive snippet from the new Coco Chanel movie, "Coco & Igor" when Coco realises she has found the Chanel No.5 scent.
Anna Mouglasis is perfect as Coco and I cannot wait until this film is out after watching VOGUE.CO.UK's sneak peek!
http://www.vogue.co.uk/video/voguetv...es/video,9712/

What do you think? Anna is so chic as Coco, non?
