What does Chanel mean to you. Chanel means heaven. It brings out the little girl in me. Motto. Less of a motto, more of a mantra but I like to say to myself: "I am a magnet for all that is good in this universe. Love comes easily to me. I don't chase, I attract. What belongs to me will simply find me." Happy place. Writing music.

GRETA LEE, ACTOR & WRITER


Chanel in 5 words. Chic ×5. What does Chanel mean to you.
Chanel was my very first introduction to beauty and style. My grandmother wore Chanel perfumes and bought me a bottle of Coco Chanel for my 16th birthday. My mom taught me how to apply eyeshadow with her Chanel Les 4 Ombres palette. My sister and I have matching Chanel flats--styled very differently, ha. For me Chanel is the epitome of multi-generational femininity.

On Greta: Silk khaki coat and mixed material necklaces. Model's own T-shirt.
