Coco Chanel Had a Scandalous Secret Life

While most people immediately associate the designer Coco Chanel with the elegant tweed skirt suit and effortless, timeless, and classy sophistication, WWD is reporting that a new biography on the designer -- Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life by Lisa Chaney -- is going to reveal some surprising facts about the doyenne of modern style. Among the scandalous secrets are Chanel's apparent drug use, bisexuality, an affair with artist Salvador Dali and some possible involvement with the Nazi party. Chaney claims she has evidence to substantiate these claims, but they are surprising and unexpected to say the least. But, after the Galliano fracas earlier this year, it seems that everyone, even arbiters of high fashion, can have a few demons hiding in their closets, next to their opulent ensembles.
