Reviews

"Anyone with a good sense of humor should hugely enjoy, or should I say enjoie, Karen Karbo's funny and stylish take on Coco Chanel. Like a little black dress, this handy life guide will take you from day into evening. K.K. on C.C.: oui, oui!"--Henry Alford, author of How to Live: A Search for Wisdom from Old People (While They are Still on This Earth) "Wise, witty, and refreshingly colloquial, The Gospel According to Coco Chanel is an enchanting tour through the complex, often controversial life of fashion icon Chanel. Filled with relevant life lessons for the modern woman, this book is Karbo at her irrepressible best." --Hilary Black, editor of The Secret Currency of Love: The Unabashed Truth About Women, Money, and Relationships
