Chanel just launched thelittleblackjacket.chanel.com, an "e-exhibition" of Lagerfeld-lensed models and celebrities wearing black Chanel jackets styled by Carine Roitfeld (a live exhibition just opened in Tokyo). While the website is not the easiest to navigate, it really made me want to buy The Little Black Jacket: Chanel's Classic Revisited (only $39 on Amazon). Seeing all of these stylish, iconic people wearing one of Coco Chanel's most iconic contributions to fashion just made me want to have it all bound together sitting on my coffee table (I promise this is not an advertisement).
In case you don't plan on buying the book, we compiled our 20 favorite shots of people like Anna Wintour, Jane Birkin, Sofia Coppola, Kirsten Dunst, Yoko Ono, Elizabeth Olsen, Lauren Hutton, Uma Thurman, Waris Ahluwalia and more, all of whom are wearing Chanel black jackets in what is truly their own unique way.
For example, we love how Coppola and Birkin are carrying their own (non-Chanel) handbags; and whose idea do you think it was to have Anna face backwards? Click through to see them all. Photos: Courtesy of Chanel
