Fashion designer Coco Chanel, artist Georgia O’Keeffe and actress Katherine Hepburn are the leading ladies in author Karen Karbo’s “kick-ass women” trilogy. Three very different women in different fields, each with a very individual sense of style, but with one thing in common: they were independent spirits who chose to live life on their own terms.
The Gospel According to Coco Chanel
The Gospel According to Coco Chanel: Life Lessons from the World’s Most Elegant Woman is described as “a captivating, offbeat look at style, celebrity and self-invention—all held together with droll Chanel-style commentary and culled from an examination of Chanel’s difficult childhood and triumphant adulthood, passionate love affairs and eccentricities.”
How Georgia Became O’Keeffe
How Georgia Became O’Keeffe: Lessons on the Art of Living “delves into the long, extraordinary life of the renowned American painter, exploring a range of universal themes. Each chapter is built around an aspect of living that concerns women today of all ages: how to find your own path; work with passion and conviction; express yourself; be in a relationship without sacrificing your sense of self; and do it all with an effortless, unique style.”
How to Hepburn: Lessons on Living from Kate the Great, the first book in the series, features strong-willed and talented actress Katherine Hepburn, who created controversy by often sporting menswear inspired outfits at a time this was still considered quite radical.
