The screening of Coco Avant Chanel at Cedar Square's Nouveau Women at the Square ladies' event was an exceptionally popular choice, booked out almost immediately.
The night's theme was "French Fashion Chic" and the ladies looked stunning in their pearls, berets and high-waisted skirts. The best dressed were rewarded with amazing prizes, thanks to Cedar Square's generous tenants and of course, there is just one rule - no men allowed!
The most delicious snacks were courtesy of Bangkok Wok - thank you to Spiro and his team; these were also soon devoured in style.
Hostess, Kate Turkington, introduced the film, which stars Audrey Tautou of Amelie fame.
Designer, Coco Chanel, named one of the most influential people of the 20th Century. Her pioneering fashions were inspired by menswear. Did you know we can thank her for the "little black dress" and for making black classic. Even a sun tan first became fashionable after she was sunburnt while on a cruise in 1923.
Famous quotes by Coco Chanel include:
"I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny."
"Where should one use perfume?" a young woman asked. "Wherever one wants to be kissed," I said.
"How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone." Location: Cinema Nouveau Cedar Square
