Coco Avant Chanel - Inspired Trends

Coco Chanel, always the ultimate taste maker, even before the House of Chanel became a cornerstone of fashion. In the movie we get a glimpse of Coco's life and discover that she has always been a style pioneer. Women were inspired to follow her lead long before she was the style icon we now know. Here are some looks from the movie, and current trends that were influenced by the period, and the woman.
