How did a poor orphan become a global icon of both luxury and everyday style? How are the personal, professional, and political interwoven in her life? Rhonda K. Garelick unravels these mysteries in her bestselling biography Mademoiselle: Coco Chanel and the Pulse of History. A Guggenheim fellow and professor, Garelick writes on fashion, design, performance, art, literature, and cultural politics.

In 1953, Emery Reves purchased Villa La Pausa from Chanel. Chanel built it and was responsible for most of the decoration, ornamental details, and furniture. By an extraordinary coincidence, the DMA became the major repository of objects that had once belonged to Chanel. Olivier Meslay and Martha MacLeod have uncovered layers of rich history and published a beautifully illustrated catalogue, From Chanel to Reves: La Pausa and Its Collections at the Dallas Museum of Art.
