Was Coco Chanel Waked sitting up?
There is a photograph in a book on Chanel Jewelry that seems to reflect this sad and unusual fact. It"s a black and white photo so it is difficult to establish color. The Coturiere is propped up in a seated posture and statuettes are either in or near her hands. There is a lot of jewelry on her body and she looks very natural until one notices a very(dead) look to her face and the dead giveaway, stylish specs over closed eyes, they did a lot of cosmetic work on her corpse. I do not know where this wake WA sheld obviously in Paris somewhere. I saw a small inset photo of this picture in a jewelry supply catalogue around 200l this was sheer luck!
