Things have been busy...

Things are speeding up as we head towards the big move. I'm still buzzing about Coco avant Chanel and can't wait for it to be released so I can see it again. I just love these images of Audrey Tautou from the May '09 Spanish Vogue.

Coco avant Chanel does a wonderful job of showing Chanel's distaste of the fashion and conventions of the time, and how she revolutionised the fashion industry by going "back to basics", incorporating elegance, class, and originality. So on that note here are some pics from my favourites folder. As Coco Chanel said to Harper's Bazaar in 1923 "Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance."

Images clockwise from top left: C Z Guest in 1950, photographed by Clifford Coffin; Grace Kelly, Life 1954 ; styling by Giovanna Battaglia; French street style via A Cup of Jo; Miu Miu Fall/Winter 09/10 campaign; C Z Guest at a picnic in 1949, photographed by Contantin Joff.
