My 10 Favourite Coco Chanel Quotes
My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.
Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.
Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
I wanted to give a woman comfortable clothes that would flow with her body. 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.
The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.
Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.
Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.
The best colour in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
