1920s fashion reflects society's rapid movement and change. No longer were women willing to trade their mobility for the old stodgy customs of the Victorian era. Old-fashioned torture devices like the corset and the crinoline no longer served a purpose for young women who wanted to dance, go to work, hop into cars, and walk around town.
Young Money (YMCMB) Recording Artist Chanel West Coast Covers Pure DOPE Magazine's Fall 2k13 "NOW" Issue: "I definitely want to do more inspiring music for my young girl fans. I talk a lot about how much weed I smoke, how much I party, and sometimes I feel guilty about that because I know my little cousins and young fans their age are listening. I definitely want to have more inspirational music on my album that uplifts young girls."
Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, 1937. The designer reclines in profile on a chaise longue, holding a cigarette. She wears a simple dark dress—an example of the ones that catapulted her to fame—and gold medallion necklaces, another trademark of the designer, who was credited with inventing costume jewelry. A simple ribbon in her hair, Chanel exudes the elegant simplicity that characterizes her brand to this day. Photo by Horst P. Horst.
