Our 'Best Dressed in Chanel' Special - Happy Birthday Coco, This One's For You.

In honour of what would have been Coco Chanel’s 135th birthday this weekend, our weekly Best Dressed list is dedicated to the French style icon. These are the Chanel looks we’ve loved most over the past 15 years – which one’s your number one?

Sarah Jessica Parker, 2004

Like SJP on the night, this glorious gun-metal grey dress was a winner - slinky on top and sparkly, embellished full skirt on the bottom, with a subtle hint of the famous legs that lie beneath.

Natalie Portman, 2006

What would a Chanel roundup be without a Little Black Dress? Natalie Portman’s beautiful, lacy, tea length LBD epitomises the grace and elegance of Chanel design.

Charlize Theron, 2006

Charlize Theron absolutely rocked this spectacular Chanel leather jacket that’s still on our wish list.

Kate Moss, 2007

Kate Moss looked fantastic (as usual) in an outfit we all immediately wanted (as usual), tucking her silky, pleated white Chanel blouse into loose black trousers and creating the ultimate, effortlessly stylish look (as usual…).

Cameron Diaz, 2009

Cameron's Globes gown is gathered and draped to perfection, and the candy pink satin looks gorgeous with  her crystal blue eyes, golden hair and honeyed skin.

Emma Roberts, 2011

Full marks for giving that time-honoured Chanel tweed a contemporary edge.

Charlotte Casiraghi, 2012

Princess Grace of Monaco's granddaughter stealing the show in the Chanel Little Black Jacket book, which celebrated the famous jacket's transcendence through the decades

Blake Lively, 2014

Strike a pose Blake, you look better than most people there, in your couture Chanel gown.

Penelope Cruz, 2018

Everyone loves a classic Chanel bouclé tweed suiting look, and Penelope’s baby pink collarless version is pure feminine chic.

Margot Robbie, 2018

Bringing the Chanel brand firmly into the present day, new ambassador Margot Robbie looked dreamy at the 2018 Academy Awards in her fitted, white, custom Chanel Couture dress, delicately trimmed with 3D crystal tube + crystal camellia embroideries.
