I didn’t want to know that

May 31, 2010

So I watched Coco Avant Chanel yesterday.

Interesting movie, interesting life, interesting woman.

Then I googled her to find out more of her history and I found out that not only was she a Nazi sympathizer but she was a collaborator.

I did not want to know that.  I didn’t want to know that only her English aristocracy friends kept her from being jailed for espionage.  I didn’t want to know that the French shunned her after the war and only the English and Americans were willing wear her clothing.

So while I like her style I don’t know if I can reconcile her personal choices.

C’est La Vie.
