My favourite Coco Chanel quotes of all time…

“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.”

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”

“My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.”

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

“Elegance does not consist in putting on a new dress.”

“If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.”

“Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside.”

“A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.”

“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.”

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

“A woman can be overdressed but never over elegant.”

“I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.”

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.”

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”

“Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.”

“I don’t care what you think of me. I don’t think of you at all.”

“Fashion has two purposes: comfort and love. Beauty comes when fashion succeeds.”

“The best color in the whole world is the one that looks good on you.”

“Fashion changes, but style endures.”

“You live but once; you might as well be amusing.”

“Elegance is refusal.”

And a funny one to finish off with:

“As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!”
