Obviously when asked what she would want to be for Halloween, Coco Chanel was not her first choice. Neither her second, or third. She was coaxed, persuaded, possibly cajoled. But in my defense, she was never bribed. I do have my limits. As she got to wear both lipstick and perfume, in no way were her girly instincts offended.
