Default Chanteuse and Designer: Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel was a French fashion designer whose pursuit of expensive simplicity made her rich. She was the founder of one of the most famous fashion brands, 'Chanel', but it didn't start out like this, oh no, there was a rocky road to fame, which features many moments she wouldn't be proud of. She was the second daughter an illiterate market stallholder and an equally illiterate laundrywoman and this illiteracy later proved to be a blessing to our heroine as neither of them could confirm the correct spelling of the surname to the hospital and it was recorded by the mayor François Poitou as "Chasnel".

This misspelling made the tracing of her roots almost impossible for early biographers when Chanel later rose to prominence (Later in life, she concocted an elaborate false history for her humble beginnings. Chanel would steadfastly claim that when her mother died, her father sailed for America to get rich and she was sent to live with two cold-hearted spinster aunts. She even claimed to have been born in 1893 as opposed to 1883, and that her mother had died when Coco was two instead of twelve).... Her mother died and her father abandoned the children and the young Chanel spent six years in a Catholic orphanage of the Roman Catholic, where she learned the trade of a seamstress until when she turned eighteen, she was obliged to leave the orphanage and find a job.

She affiliated with the circus of Moulins as a cabaret singer (Chanteuse). She performed in bars in Vichy and Moulins where she was known as "Coco". Chanel later said that it was a "shortened version of coquette, the French word for 'kept women," according to an article in 'The Atlantic'. However the dream of being a singer failed when she couldn't get steady work as a singer, and she started designing hats 'as a hobby' ... she became a licensed modiste (hat maker) in 1910, and she eventually found a backer and opened her first boutique at 21 rue Cambon, Paris named 'Chanel Modes' and her backers own clothing style, notably his English jersey blazers, inspired her creation of the 'Chanel Look'. Chanel's modiste career bloomed once theatre actress Gabrielle Dorziat modelled her hats in the play 'Bel Ami' in 1912 (Subsequently, Dorizat modelled her hats again in Les Modes) and by 1919, Chanel was registered as a couturiere and established her maison de couture at 31 rue Cambon

In 1924, Chanel made an agreement with the Wertheimer brothers, Pierre and Paul, to create a corporate entity, "Parfums Chanel." The Wertheimers agreed to provide full financing for production, marketing and distribution of Chanel No. 5. For ten percent of the stock, Chanel licensed her name to "Parfums Chanel" and removed herself from involvement in all business operations ... she then spent years trying to get control back .... she did so by getting the German officials to legalize her right to sole ownership, because the Wertheimers, were Jewish and had fled France, and Chanel used her position as an “Aryan” to try and get them removed during the occupation of France Ultimately, the Wertheimers and Chanel came to a mutual accommodation, re-negotiating the original 1924 contract to her benefit (they had put a Christian in charge during the war, which stopped her original claim).

In 1931 Chanel met movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn who offered Chanel the sum of a million dollars (approximately seventy-five million today), to go to Hollywood twice a year to design costumes for MGM stars. Chanel accepted the offer. En route to California from New York traveling in a white train car, which had been luxuriously outfitted specifically for her use, she was interviewed by Colliers magazine in 1932. Chanel said she had agreed to the arrangement to "see what the pictures have to offer me and what I have to offer the pictures" ... not the money then

Collaborator:

In 1939, at the beginning of World War II, Chanel closed her shops. She believed that it was not a time for fashion but she didn't leave France. During the German occupation Chanel resided at the Hotel Ritz, which was also noteworthy for being the preferred place of residence for upper echelon German military staff. She also maintained an apartment above her couture house at 31 rue Cambon.

Chanel’s friend and biographer Marcel Haedrich provided a telling estimation of her wartime interaction with the Nazi regime: “If one took seriously the few disclosures that Mademoiselle Chanel allowed herself to make about those black years of the occupation, one’s teeth would be set on edge.” ... just today fresh allegations by biographer Hal Vaughan state that Chanel actually worked for German military intelligence during the war.

Whilst not a spy, she was a collaborator "She was a facilitator. She knew everybody in Spain, she knew everybody in England, and she helped out the Nazis." In 1945, she moved to Switzerland, (possibly to avoid the collaboration trials). There are some suggestions that she was only spared from being tried as a collaborator due to either Churchill's intervention, or as others say because of the British Royal Family intervening.

Post War:

On 17 May 1947, Chanel received wartime profits of Chanel No. 5 in the amount of some nine million dollars in today’s money, and in the future her share would be two percent of all Chanel No. 5 sales worldwide. The financial benefit to her would be earnings of twenty-five million dollars a year, making her at the time one of the richest women in the world.

She finally returned to Paris in 1954 when the collaborations offences were no longer a public thirst ... That same year she returned to the fashion world. Oddly the re-establishment of her couture house in 1954 was fully financed by Chanel’s old nemesis in the perfume battle, Pierre Wertheimer. The price of this was to allow Wertheimer to maintain ownership of “Parfums Chanel.” In return, Wertheimer agreed to pay for all of Chanel’s expenses from the large to the trivial for as long as she lived.

Her new collection did not have much success with the Parisians because of her relationship with the Nazis (not all had been forgotten) but the British and Americans became her faithful customers ... 1961 saw the movie "Breakfast At tiffanys" with Audrey Hepburn in "that little black dress" by Chanel.

In early 1971 Chanel, then eighty-seven years old, was tired and ailing but continued to adhere to her usual schedule, overseeing the preparation of the spring collection. She died on Sunday 10 January, at the Hotel Ritz where she had resided for more than thirty years. She had gone for a long drive that afternoon and, not feeling well, had retired early to bed.

Affairs:

While singing at Moulins she met rich, young French textile heir Étienne Balsan, to whom she soon became an acknowledged mistress, keeping her day job in a tailoring shop, while Balsan lavished on her the baubles of "the rich life" ... diamonds, dresses, and pearls.

In 1909 Chanel met and began an affair with one of Balsan's friends, Captain Arthur Edward 'Boy' Capel (he was also her first backer) ... The couple spent time together at fashionable resorts such as Deauville, but he was never faithful to Chanel, considering her nothing more than one mistress amongst many. The affair lasted nine years, but even after Capel married an aristocratic English girl 1918, he did not completely break off with Chanel. His death in a car accident, in late 1919, was the single most devastating event in Chanel's life. A roadside memorial at the site of the accident was placed there by Chanel, who visited it in later years to place flowers there

During the war she had a public affair with Hans Günther von Dincklage, a German military intelligence officer (and something of a playboy), who arranged for her to remain in the hotel Ritz (a habit she never lost).

Coco dated some of the most influential men of her time, but she never married. The reason may be found in her answer, when asked why she did not marry the Duke of Westminster (a long term lover) "There have been several Duchesses of Westminster. There is only one Chanel."

Trivia:
  • She was the only person in the couturier field to be named on Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century.
  • Some biographers suggests that the fashion designer's nephew André Palasse, who was supposedly the only child of her sister Julie, may actually have been Chanel's child by Étienne Balsan.
  • In 1920, she was introduced by ballet impresario Sergei Diaghilev to Igor Stravinsky, composer of 'The Rite of Spring', to whom she extended an offer for him and his family to reside with her.
  • She proclaimed that Pierre Wertheimer was “the bandit who screwed me.”
  • Chanel was a very close friend of Walter Schellenberg to the extent that when he died of cancer penniless in Turin, Chanel paid for his funeral.
  • Some suggest that Coco Chanel had close contact with another Nazi, Walter Kutschmann, who was responsible for the murder of thousands of Poland's Jews early in World War II. He was transferred to France in 1943 where he became Chanel's Paris SS contact. Kutschmann made frequent trips to Spain with Chanel with large sums of money passing between them

Surprisingly few, all things considered ....

Default Model and TV Girl: Hayley Marie Norman

Hayley Marie Norman, whose father is retired major league baseball player Gregory Norman (who won a 'world' Series as a member of the Detroit Tigers), traveled extensively and lived a life of privilege as a child and is now a model, who has appeared in the movies, including 'Fired Up', 'Hancock',' Trailer Park of Terror', and 'Norbit', and also modeled briefcase #25 on the US version of the TV show "Deal or No Deal" (how minor a celeb is that! ) ... actually there is a bit more, she has had roles on several television shows including the cable network series 'Crash', the soap opera 'The Young and The Restless', and 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip' .... she's done some other stuff more recently.

Well enough of her resume, no really, that's it, one paragraph about sums it up ... anyway she was arrested last Friday .... now this is a new one for this thread, for allegedly texting (SMS) a very nasty word (or two) to her ex-fiance's new girlfriend ... and the words that caused this dramatic turn of events "You're a F*cking C*nt" ... (and that ain't 'Kant').

Ms Norman turned herself in to police in Los Angeles Friday afternoon, after her ex's new girl friend informed the police that she had received an obscene text message from Norman last week ... unfortunately there is circumstantial evidence to suggest that this may not be the only offence she gets charged with. Law enforcement sources reported to the press that the new girl friend had also complained that someone (well Ms Norman) had vandalized the outside of her apartment by writing various messages ... including "This girl sucks dicks for free" and "This girl is a f*cking c*nt" ... not proof positive I know, but highly suggestive that further charges will be forthcoming.

Norman was booked on the misdemeanor charge of making obscene or threatening phone calls ... and was released from custody just a few hours later. Efforts to talk to Ms Norman's agent was not returned .... I was wondering if the agency is the same one that represents so many of the models on this thread?

Trivia:
  • She is an animal rights activist and vegan ... definitely said 'vegan' .. so no meat then ... maybe that's the problem?
  • She also writes as a guest contributor on the vegetarian, eco-friendly, and animal rights website, thisdishisvegetarian.com
Pictures:

I kinda assumed that she had no thread, but lo, whats that? Yes she does and its here. As usual, I try to de-dupe (or offer better versions), but apologies for any that are the same, and all new pictures to her thread thanks.

Default Bikini Model: SueLyn Medeiros

SueLyn Medeiros is a Brazilian bikini model and a hard partying 'video vixen', so consequently, very good looking, in a booty enhanced kinda way. She apparently models (oddly she is the face of a Fire alarm), and dances for music videos. There have been rumors of relationships with celebs ranging from 50 Cent to Leonardo DiCaprio ....

Anyway, fame isn't the only thing to go to her head, apparently alcohol does as well. So its probably no big surprise that in July, the police in California arrested Ms Medeiros on a Drunk Under the Influence (DUI) charge after she allegedly sideswiped a parked car, according to reports. Police investigators reported that the 25-year-old was pulled over in Hollywood after crashing her DeLorean (Yes, the 'back to the future' car!) into a parked car. Police say a "strong odor" of alcohol was prevalent inside the car. Medeiros was riding with Claudia Jordan at the time, and was arrested by police after failing a field sobriety test and blowing a 1.4, nearly double the legal limit in California.

Medeiros was held under $45,000 bail due to a prior arrest warrant ... the subject of which has not been revealed (but which will no doubt come to light in court), apparently she then flew to Las Vegas for a party On very much of a side note, the apparent willingness of the US to refuse green cards to Chinese engineers, but allow them to Brazilian 'Booty' dancers may go a long way to explain the expected rise of the Chinese economy to #1

Sadly I wasn't the first to find this woman so there is a thread here already ... there may be some dupes, but still worth posting a few selected pictures ... any follow ups to her thread please

Default Model: Carolyn Murphy

Carolyn Murphy is an American model and actress. Like many a clothes horse, she left school at age 16 and began her career when her mother enrolled her in a modeling school. Soon, she was modeling locally in Florida, as well as abroad in Japan and Paris .... Murphy enrolled at the University of Virginia, while modeling part-time. She modelled for 'Harpers Bazaa'r and 'Vogue', and for campaigns like 'Dolce Gabbana', 'Max Mara', and 'Calvin Klein' and in 1998, she was named VH1/Vogue's "Model of the Year". In 2001, Estee Lauder signed Murphy to an exclusive contract, where she replaced Liz Hurley.

She is not a shy girl and a career in films seemingly beckoned. She had the role of "Dubbie" in the film 'Liberty Heights', and she was allegedly offered a role in "Pearl Harbor" with many other offers expected to follow, but in fact she has only played in the one movie to date.

Her big 'Oops!' was the discovery of the home video camera ..... where her and her husband practised for a film career, by filming the ubiquitous 'honeymoon sex tape' .... this was retained by her ex-husband after they split up in 2005. Jake Schroeder was charged with extortion after being arrested in January 2006, and was held behind bars for five days in California before being released on $33,000 (£18,000) bail.

The bail money for Schroeder was put up by the Internet Commerce Group (ICG) - the company trying to market the two-hour long video, who added that "Our position is that no crime has been committed. You cannot commit extortion by offering to sell something you own. Rather than risking a battle in civil court, where she might lose and see the tape released, Carolyn has decided to simply fabricate a false extortion claim against Schroeder".

Murphy countered "Of course I don't want the tape to come out. It is private and intimate moments from my honeymoon with a man I thought I could trust. It has turned out I was completely wrong" .... how true those words will echo with many of the girls featured here.

Trivia:
  • She graduated (if leaving school at 16 can be called 'graduating') from Choctawhatchee High School in 1991 ... that's the real name
Pictures:

She has a thread here, which features many pictures from the 'Sex Tape', which I guess shows who won the battle of 2006 ... I will only a post a few illustrative pictures (only two dupes spotted), and any follow ups to her thread please

Thumbs down Interviewer and TV Personality - Barbara "WaWa" Walters

Barbara Walters (born September 25, 1929) is an American broadcast journalist and author, who is the host and producer of the television show The View, the television newsmagazine (20/20), former co-anchor of the ABC Evening News, and current contributor to ABC News.

Her reported pension to sleep with key decision makers to further her career has been common gossip throughout the industry yet not refuted in her own autobiography.

She has been married 4 times and has been romantically linked to countless men without regard to the marital status of either the man or herself. She has admitted to "affairs of the heart" (specifically in the 1970s with Edward Brooke, then a married United States Senator from Massachusetts) but said the affair was ended to protect their careers from scandal. Sadly, their spouses (or children) were not the reason to end the affair.

It was this affair that came back to haunt WaWa on a recent airing of the view - recounted on VEF by Ona Nism here. This is her latest (and most likely not the last) example of the pot calling the kettle black and when called on it, she responds with her standard, "We are here to talk about you, not me.'"

Looking back on her past interviews, Barbara Walters indicated regret when forcing singer Ricky Martin to open up about his sexuality in a 2000 interview and reveals that her questions, more than likely, ended his career. "In 2000, I pushed Ricky Martin very hard to admit if he was gay or not, and the way he refused to do it made everyone decide that he was," she told The Toronto Star. "A lot of people say that destroyed his career, and when I think back on it now, I feel it was an inappropriate question."

At the same time, she insists that Martin should have been aware the questions would be asked even though that topic was agreed to be, "off limits/out of bounds." (According to Ricky Martin's manager)

Barbara Walters has continually been a loyal friend and fierce attacker for those close to her or her beliefs.

Recently Walters did her best to defend Anthony Weiner's wiener pics saying the pics were probably intended for his wife.. Not!

In case you are wondering who occupies Barbara's bed now (why would you ) Perez Hilton reports it is Whoopi Goldberg's Ex. <Here>

Talk about strange bedfellows...

Default Actress; Tracey Gold

Tracey Gold is an American actress and former child star (No pics pre 1987) who is still probably still best known for playing 'Carol Seaver' on the 1980's sitcom 'Growing Pains'. With her family background she unsurprisingly has been an actress since the age of four, first appearing in a Pepsi print ad. She appeared in two canceled series, 'Shirley' in 1979, and 'Goodnight Beantown' in 1983. She played one of Albert Finney and Diane Keaton's four daughters in the 1982 feature film 'Shoot the Moon'.

In 1985, she auditioned for the role on 'Growing Pains', but was not cast in the pilot but was for the series. 'Growing Pains' ran from 1985 until 1992 and Gold became a teen star. In 1988, she also starred in the teen film 'Dance 'til Dawn' ..... little did she know that this was her peak fame career moment (but they never do, do they?). After the end of the, Gold continued to work as an actress but almost entirely in made for TV or straight to DVD movies.

She then spent a few years battling with anorexia nervosa, and photos of her body were plastered all over tabloid magazines, and she was one of the first celebrities ever to be formally outed for anorexia, but eventually she recovered and resumed her film career aged 25 in the 1994 TV movie 'For the Love of Nancy' (pics below) .... She was a contestant on 'Celebrity Mole 2: Yucatán' in 2004 She is currently hosting the mini-show 'Trapped in TV Guide' and is the host of 'The Secret Life of a Soccer Mom'. In early 2009, she co-hosted on the live show 'GSN Live'.

Arrest:

In 2004, she was arrested by officers of the California Highway Patrol for drunk driving after rolling her SUV down a California freeway embankment .... somewhat shamefully (and unusually for DUI's on this thread), her husband and three young boys were passengers when she chose to drive the vehicle.

She was charged under her married name, Tracey Gold Marshall with a felony count of driving under the influence causing injury. According to a CHP spokesman, she was driving on Route 118 when she lost control of the vehicle ... one child broke a bone but no one was fatally injured in the late-night crash .... she spent five hours in the Ventura police cells before being released on $50,000 bail.

Trivia:
  • Her younger sister is fellow actress Missy Gold, who appeared on the TV series Benson from 1979 to 1986.
  • The surname "Gold" is a shortened form of the name acquired by Tracey and Missy when they were adopted by Actor and Agent 'Harry Goldstein'.
  • Missy and Tracey have three younger half-sisters, two of whom, Brandy and Jessie Gold, are actresses.
  • Gold was originally cast as the youngest daughter in the original pilot series of the show 'Gimme A Break!' but was replaced by actress Lara Jill Miller when the show went to series.
Pictures:

All growed up pics ... she hasn't actually done any nudes, but she's in a bikini in the 1988 season of the 'Growing Pains' series at age 19 (she looked younger due to her weight issues... which I guess was the point) ... US TV rules ensure that girls are over 18 before bras and bikini's can be shown She has changed her appearances a lot over the years, but I have checked and as far as I can tell these are all her.

Default Actress: Kim Delaney

Kim Delaney is an American actress. She started working as a model for the 'Elite Agency' (a name followers of this thread will recognise for other entries) , whilst still in education and after her graduation, she went to New York and found employment as a model, where she also studied acting.

She started acting in the daytime drama 'All My Children', and then in various numerous television and film roles (the best of which was as a possessed nymphomaniac in the soft-core horror film, 'Temptress'), moving on to lead roles in the series 'Philly' and 'CSI: Miami', (she only appeared in 10 episodes before being written out apparently due to a lack of 'screen chemistry' with male lead David Caruso). Her most famous role was Det. Diane Russell on drama 'N.Y.P.D. Blue'.

Her film career is mixed, with the vast majority of her work being in made for TV or straight to DVD productions ... the highlight maybe "Missions To Mars" in 2000. She currently stars on the Lifetime television drama, 'Army Wives'.

Arrests:

In January 2002, Delaney was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving. She was allegedly driving erratically on the Pacific Coast Highway when a motorist behind her called 911 on his cell phone, giving a play-by-play to police as he followed her for 5 miles, all the way to her home, where police turned up and arrested her after her refusal to complete the field sobriety test or a breathalyzer tests. She subsequently pleaded no contest in February 2002 and was sentenced to two years' probation, fined, and ordered to take a driving class.

She has a reasonably active thread here, so apologies for any dupes (we are all swimming in the same small pond of pictures for this lady). I have only posted a few illustrative pictures here, and any follow ups to her thread please.

Unhappy Dana Plato

VintageKell - Your post of Actress; Tracey Gold reminded me of Dana Plato (November 7, 1964 – May 8, 1999) from the U.S. television sitcom Diff'rent Strokes. I swear, that show was cursed big time.

1983 /19 years old

She admitted to drinking and using recreational drugs during her years on Diff'rent Strokes.

Plato began her career doing television commercials (in over 100) and than played the angelic Kimberly Drummond from 1978 until 1986 before her career went off the cliff, forcing Plato to chose roles that could be considered erotic or even pornographic - her most infamous film is 1997's Different Strokes: The Story of Jack and Jill...and Jill and was rated X.

She appeared in the June 1989 issue of Playboy to show of her new breast implants.


In 1991, Plato took a job at a dry-cleaning store to support herself. On February 28, she entered a video store, produced a gun, and demanded the money from the register. The clerk called 911 saying, "I've just been robbed by the girl who played Kimberly on Diff'rent Strokes". Fifteen minutes after the robbery, Plato returned to the scene and was immediately arrested. The gun was only a pellet gun and the robbery netted Plato $164.


Police found that Plato apparently took an accidental drug overdose of the painkiller Lortab along with Valium on May 8, 1999, Mother's Day
Almost 11 years to the day of Dana Plato's death, on May 6, 2010, Plato's son Tyler Lambert died at age 25 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Her VEF thread is here

On a side note: This was actually a hard one to write for many reasons, mostly because so many actions and decisions by others (who were close to her) and than a slew of tragic events took her to a place (within her mind) that was dark. Through an inner strength and love of life she lifted herself out of that darkness and was starting to turn things around.

Sadly, even her death was misunderstood by many as a suicide rather than the accidental death the police believed it to be. (Her death was ruled a suicide in technical compliance of the laws of the State of Oklahoma.) Additional info can be found here.
