One of our 'Coco Before Chanel' competition winners

Maggie Matich, 17 from Liverpool

We were thrilled when we received this entry for our 'Coco Before Chanel' competition... we think she could pass for Coco herself! We love how Maggie incorporated Coco's innovative masculine style touches into her look. The trousers, the baggy tee. Coco's 'little boy' look broke new ground in the 1920's.

Maggie say's her 'outfit was inspired by Chanel's nautical influence and her view that women have a right to wear trousers and jersey tee-shirts just as men did. I also wore the straw hat as in the film she decorates men's hats for the ladies, introducing them to her style.'

And there's still time to enter so head to our homepage and show us your Chanel inspired looks!
