BOOK REVIEW: Coco and the Little Black Dress by Annemarie Van Haeringen


"Hurry up! You may only go to bed when all the sheets are ironed."

Little Coco grew up in the orphanage and had to work hard for a living sewing and embroidering like an angel. Until her eighteenth birthday . . . Coco knew one thing for sure Coco. She would never, never be poor again.

A beautifully illustrated picture book biography of Coco Chanel. 

Coco Chanel (1883-1971) was a famous French fashion designer. Born into a poor family, strictly brought up in the orphanage, influenced by the style of wealthy suitors, she remained faithful throughout her life to the simplicity. A luxurious simplicity, which has produced memorable style icons like the little black dress and perfume Chanel No. 5.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 9 months


This book is wonderful at summing up one of the greatest fashion designer's life. My favorite part is when all the ladies come to Coco for her designs. I love Coco's little black dress! 

I recommend this book to any reader who likes inspirational stories and fashion. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 and up. 

This book's publishing date is today, September 30, 2015.
