Bringing Back 1920's Glam with Model Freja Beha and Photographer Steven Meisel to the famous comments of Coco Chanel

This fabulous 1920's inspired editorial by photographer Steven Meisel and model Freja Beha, brings me back to the famous quotes from Coco Chanel.

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.”


“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”



“A girl should be two things:
classy and fabulous.”



“As long as you know men are like children,
you know everything!”




“The best color in the whole world,
is the one that looks good, on you!”




“Don't spend time beating on a wall,
hoping to transform it into a door.”




“A woman is closest to being naked when she is well dressed”



“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

“There is time for work, and time for love.

That leaves no other time”

"A woman that doesn't wear perfume has no future."
~~


Such clever and timeless thoughts from the
legendary Coco Chanel.
What is your favorite Coco quote?

Thanks so much for stopping by,
dear friend.
