Watch: A Little Lesson in Chanel Color Theory

In this new short video, delve into the world of Chanel color theory — or, at least, the theory of five Chanel colors: black, white, beige, gold, and red. Learn from a clipped female British voice about Coco Chanel’s belief in lipstick trumping sadness (“If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack. Men hate women who weep.”). Watch the video to hear about the importance of red lining in accessories (“the color of life and blood!”), the difference between beige and white, and the color you should wear to funerals and bed.
