1930s actress Kay Francis wearing a bandeau (a tiara-inspired headpiece), bracelet, ring and necklaces of pearls.

After living a very impoverished life, growing up in an orphanage, Coco Chanel became the only fashion designer to earn a place in Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century. Gone were the "aigrettes, long hair, hobble skirts" and in were the "liberated physicality, and unencumbered sportive confidence." Her clothes features a long and loose fit. He suits, 2.55 bag, and lifestyle she exemplifies are her trademarks

The "L.B.D." - Little Black Dress...... It is said, that during the 1920's Coco Chanel more or less invented the beloved Little Black Dress. The classic wardrobe essential curiously walks the impossible line between timeless and modern, perhaps more so than any other item. So, the next time you’re in fashion doubt, reach for your L.B.D.—whatever your version is—and whisper a little thanks to CC.
