Coco Chanel Birthday: The Design House's Signature Look Throughout The Years (PHOTOS)

PHOTOS: Chanel's Signature Look Throughout The Years

Coco Chanel once said, "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." It seems like the iconic designer took her own advice, because her nearly 100-year-old fashion house has yet to be deemed passé.

Gabrielle "Coco" Bonheur Chanel was credited with liberating women with her comfortable yet chic sportswear and creating one of the most iconic perfumes, Chanel No. 5. Throughout the years, women have slipped on their Chanel dresses, jackets and pearls in updated versions of the brand's classic look, which, along with a spritz of the house's fragrance, has never seemed to go out of style.

From Jackie Kennedy to Gwyneth Paltrow, Mademoiselle Chanel definitely has had some top-notch celebrity admirers. In honor of the late designer's 129th birthday today, here's a look at celebrities in Chanel throughout history. Bon anniversaire, Coco!
