This portrait was created when chanel was at the height of her fame, Horst's arrangement of the furnishings, fabrics and lighting creates an atmospheric Silhouette, giving rise to an enigmatic Ambience, framed by her emblematic gold jewellery but poised with cigarette and reclining into a plush satin chair somehow Horst reveals a gentler side to Chanel.

Horst P Horst modernised fashion photography, as an innovator of taste and a twentieth century master of light it was Coco Chanel who insisted that only Horst be allowed to take her photograph. Horst confessed the first session was "a flop" but the second produced an image that was to remain chanel's favourite.
