  1. Chanel

    Chanel S.A. is a French privately held company owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gerard Wertheimer, grandsons of Pierre Wertheimer, who was an early business partner of the couturière Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel. Chanel S.A. is a high fashion brand that specializes in haute couture and ready-to-wear clothes, luxury goods and fashion accessories. In her youth, Gabrielle Chanel gained the nickname Coco from her time as a chanteuse. As a fashion designer, Coco Chanel catered to women’s taste for elegance in dress, with blouses and suits, trousers and dresses, and jewelery of simple design, that replaced the opulent, over-designed, and constrictive clothes and accessories of 19th-century fashion. The Chanel product brands have been personified by fashion models and actresses, including Inès de la Fressange, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Vanessa Paradis, Nicole Kidman, Anna Mouglalis, Lucía Hiriart, Hope Portocarrero, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley and Marilyn Monroe, who epitomize the independent, self-confident Chanel Girl. Historically, the House of Chanel is most famous for the stylistically versatile “little black dress”, the perfume No. 5 de Chanel, and the Chanel Suit. Chanel’s use of jersey fabric produced garments that were comfortable and affordable. Chanel revolutionized fashion — high fashion and everyday fashion — by replacing structured-silhouettes, based upon the corset and the bodice, with garments that were functional and flattering to the woman’s figure.

Examples of Chanel in a Sentence

  1. Frances Beatrix Spade:

    House of Cards, is Spade’s niece. In the same 1999 interview with the Boston Globe, Spade, who had five siblings, told the newspaper her father owned a construction company and her mother was a housewife. To say the least, Spade, who recalled times of rummaging through her mother’s jewelry drawer and wearing overalls around the house, never expected to one day become a fashion expert. When I was a kid, I didn't even know Chanel. I would have called it Channel.

  3. Another Israeli customer:

    It was a little ordinary. (Founder) Gabrielle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld had strong personalities, that's what this brand needs.

  4. Reem Abousamra:

    You could feel the new touch with maybe more feminine cuts, longer skirts, they shouldn't change completely ..., you have to have the spirit (of Chanel).

  5. Ben Stiller:

    Ben Stiller said of Chanel's creative director. It breaks my heart. Maybe if we ever do another. WATCH : Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson Walk the Valentino Runway as Derek Zoolander -LRB- Stiller -RRB- and Hansel Marc Jacobs, however, was more than happy to play Hansel Marc Jacobs in the comedy. I was thrilled to say yes to Ben Stiller, i thought the first one was hilarious. The Derek Zoolander -LRB- Stiller -RRB- franchise, which debuted in theaters 15 years ago, is special for Ben Stiller, whoprefers the daft model to reamin a part of Derek Zoolander -LRB- Stiller -RRB- legacy over Derek Zoolander -LRB- Stiller -RRB- other on-screen, persona, Greg Focker inMeet the Parents. I ’d much rather have somebody say, ‘ Hey, Derek Zoolander -LRB- Stiller -RRB-, ’ than ‘ Hey, Greg Focker,' he quipped.

That look came out of me in the mirror at home, when I brush my hair or whatever, Ben Stiller recalled. I guess with the selfie culture, it’s just a natural extension. Did I have any idea that it would live on ? No. Although Ben Stiller and Penelope Cruz is new to the Zoolander world but has always been a fan of the comedy.
