Justine Picardie Page 1
Yesterday, we were lucky enough to be invited to a luncheon hosted by Chanel at New York City’s famed La Grenouille in honor of Justine Picardie’s recent book on the life of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, the appropriately titled, Chanel: Her Life. The book is fascinating and a must read, but even more fascinating were the ghost stories Picardie told us over red wine and chicken paillard. Yes, ghost stories.
We tend to give the people we admire most the benefit of the doubt. But what good is that practice when the person we’re busy admiring is the one who created that doubt to begin with? That’s the question confronted in Justine Picardie‘s new biography Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life. As it turns out, Madamoiselle lied. A lot.
