Coco Chanel Was Bisexual, Did Drugs, Dated A Nazi

Depending on how up on your fashion history you are, you may have already known some or all of the following things: (1.) Coco Chanel was bisexual, (2.) She was a frequent drug user, and (3.) Her German lover, Hans Günther von Dincklage, was a spy for the Nazis. All this is expounded upon and proven in the upcoming book, Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life by biographer Lisa Chaney, which will provide plenty of juicy bits for both fashion history buffs and n00bs. The book will be released this November. (WWD)
