"A woman with good shoes is never ugly." This quotation comes from no less fashionable Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel himself. In 1914, Coco Chanel founded the world-famous model set based in Paris, and a year later her fashion was declared the "epitome of elegance". Coco Chanel made a great contribution to the liberation of the woman from not only fashionable but also social norms. After her death in 1971, Coco Chanel left behind a world-famous, tradition-rich fashion empire, with the head designer Karl Lagerfeld still revolutionizing the fashion world. In addition to clothing and coveted bags, the Chanel ballerina's high-heeled women's shoes also boast of a high profile. Also stylists like Olivia Palermo and Ashley Olsen or actresses like Mila Kunis and Jennifer Garner are big fans of the Chanel ballerinas and gladly show up with them in the public.
