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


BLURB:

"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

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

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.
