Famous writer Françoise Sagan said on French TV, that Coco Chanel was fiercely antisemitic: "I liked her work, but I didn't like her at all. I found her disgusting, nasty, cruel, antisemitic. I had dinner with her twice. Each time I left early...because of her offensive antisemitic opinions. I didn't like that. We were pretty much at odds." [from Les guerres de Coco Chanel (2019), translated].


Was played by Katharine Hepburn in the 1970 Alan Jay Lerner/ André Previn Broadway musical Coco.


She is known for her work on The Rules of the Game (1939), Tonight or Never (1931) and Éducation sentimentale (1962).


She retired in 1938 and made a successful comeback in 1954.


Worked for Sergei Diaghilev in 1924-1928 as costume designer for his "Russian Seasons" in collaboration with Pablo Picasso.


Popularized the sun-tanned look in the 1920s after appearing on her vacation yacht with a sun tan. Prior to that, porcelain white skin was popular, because it was believed that only people of lower class worked in the sun and were therefore tan.


Took on the nickname Coco after her 1905 performance of the song, "Qui qu'a vu Coco dans le Trocadero" for a crowd of uniformed admirers at La Rotande, a music hall in a small, provincial town.


She was the second daughter of Henri-Albert Chanel and Eugénie Jeanne Dévolles. She was born out of wedlock until her parents married on November 17, 1884. In marrying Jeanne, Albert legalized his paternity, and Coco and her sister Julia's names were recorded in the "livret de famille," the handbook issued to every couple for registration of births and deaths.


Coco Chanel was born on August 19, 1883 in Saumur, Maine-et-Loire, France as Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel.


Her older sister Julia was born on September 11, 1882.


Her birth certificate is misleading - her father's surname and hers were misspelt due to a clerical error as "Chasnel". Her father's surname on his own birth certificate had also been misspelt as "Charnet". The mistake on his birth certificate was not corrected in official records until 1878 when a court decree stated that Charnet be replaced on the certificate by Chanel, which is the true name.
