#30 That is popular French house model Marie-Hélène Arnaud with Coco Chanel. She would later try her own hand at fashion design and started a pret-a=porter line. She also had a brief career as an actress.

You will be shocked to know I have it and have read it over and over again!! It is a wonderful little book- and you can read a page or two at a time if you wish and still get something out of it-the writer is a non fashion person who saw the divine light through studying up on Coco- a terrific book!!
And, yes-Marie-Hélène Arnaud was the Chanel model for me- what a classic beauty! I always look for pictures of her; a legend!!
