10 Things We Love About Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel:
1. Here nickname is Coco-too f*in cute-meets-chic for words
2. A feminist revolution who completely did way with corset
3. Originally a milliner who got her start placing her hats on the heads of famous French actresses
4. Held a tight grip over the reigns of Chanel by presiding as chief designer from 1909 - 1971
5. Moved into the Hotel Ritz Paris--Her suite is still referred to as the CoCo Chanel suite
6. Met with a fortune teller who told her that the number was her lucky number--so CoCo named her first perfume No. 5 and debuted the scent on the 5th day of the fifth month, May.
7. In 1926, CoCo invented another wardrobe mainstay: the LBD (little black dress)
8. In the same year, she also began experimenting with tweeds, inspired by a trip to Scotland, and created her first tweed skirt suit--now considered a seminal Chanel piece.
9. After closing her couture house in 1939 (only perfumes and accessories were sold in Chanel boutiques), Chanel re-opened the fashion house in 1954 and helmed the House herself at the spritely age of 71.
