Channel Chanel.

Thanks to abysmal Saturday night television, I decided to watch Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky. I had seen it's far more commercialised predecessor at the cinema and, of course, loved it: What's not to love?... Fashion, Audrey Tautou and subtitles. The second was far more artistic, largely without dialogue but equally lovable with a totally different appeal. I would be quite happy to simply watch, enviously, her outfits and her fabulous house, never mind the storyline or music. Hence, the next day, when I was going to see Black Swan, my outfit was largely influenced by the black and white and simple, elegant cuts.

Needless to say, I loved Black Swan. But I shall tell you what else I loved... Thank you SO much to Caramelle at iinstinct for this incredible drawing, I cannot thank her enough. Her digital art is perfection.

I watched Coco before Chanel and it was awfully sad when he died but I just fell in love with how beautiful it was <3

You look stunning! White and black is so delicate and pretty in my opinion :) Glad you liked Black Swan, it's so amazing. You've just reminded me that I need to see the Coco Chanel movie, I had "acquired" it and alas it had no subtitles :(

Awesome job with your wiki page by the way!
