Coco Chanel Secrets Uncovered In New Biography

‘Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life’, written by Lisa Chaney, will be released later this year and is set to lift the lid on the designer’s private life. The biographer claims to have found evidence, Chanel “used drugs, embraced bisexuality and had an affair with Salvador Dali while he was married”.

The author’s publicist has also confirmed that Chaney accessed documents from the Swiss Federal Archives to prove Günther von Dincklage (one of Chanel’s lovers) was a spy for the Nazis during World War II.

While there are many Chanel bios already out there, this one is certainly shaping up to be a compelling read.
