Excellent! But then ALL of her quizzes are always just that also.

Thanks for the nice notes. I had recently read an article about her and had no idea that her life was so complicated. Here are all the phrases and clues:
Coco Chanel
1. She is said to be the mastermind behind the little black dress. ("Designing woman")
2. “Fashion is made to become unfashionable.” ("Famous quote")
3. She lived in exile in Switzerland and fell in love with a Nazi officer. ("Forbidden love, 1945")
4. The average cost of one of her exclusive designer suits. ("$5000")
5. Her birth name was Gabrielle. ("Known by a nickname")
6. Received its name because it was the fifth sample presented to her. ("Famous perfume")
7. She learned to sew while growing up in a Catholic orphanage. ("A designer is born!")
8. Her tombstone is carved with lion heads to represent her zodiac sign. ("A Leo")
9. Katharine Hepburn on Broadway and Shirley Maclaine on television. ("Who portrayed me?")
10. She came back from vacation with a tan and sunbathing became popular. ("Bathing beauty")

I enjoyed this puzzle too. Figured out her identity because of the first clue I got [ her perfume #5].

She led an interesting life.

And it's Audrey Tatou (Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain) who portrays her on the big screen.

Darn, Clevercloggs, that went right over my head but now that you explained it, that was really very clever of you. it's not your fault I am thick-headed!

Excellent word puzzle. I found the facts fascinating. Great job of weaving her life story into a WP.
