Oh shiz!

This is pretty earth shattering, if we may say so ourselves!!!

So you know that pink “Chanel” suit Jackie O wore that was made INFAMOUS the day JFK was assassinated???

Chanel designed Karl Lagerfeld is now causing a stir, revealing:

"In 1963, it was a fake, a line-by-line copy by Cassini. She did have real Chanels, her sister ordered them. We have all the proof."

So it wasn’t REALLY Chanel?

Well, not technically.

Author of Chanel, Her Life Justine Picardie clarifies:

"She was able to acquire Chanel outfits sewn for her in New York by a dressmaking establishment called Chez Ninon. The garments were not fake or pirated, but made to order using materials supplied by Chanel in Paris… Thus it was, that she came to be wearing a vivid pink Chanel suit (complete with fabric, trim and buttons from 31 Rue Cambon, but fitted at Chez Ninon) on 22nd November 1963, accompanying her husband to Dallas."

Seems like the outfit was neither fake nor real…but more so an authorized copy!

Thoughts???
