Coco Chanel Would Be Proud of My Tan

Duke of Westminster and Coco Chanel on the Flying CloudEarly on, tans were déclassé and were a symbol of poverty — only those who toiled in the hot sun had bronzed skin.  Coco Chanel is credited with making tans chic.  With all her time spent on the French Riviera and on the Flying Cloud it’s no wonder that she became tan – and what Coco did, everyone else did.

Today, things have changed.  We’re supposed to douse ourselves in sunscreen and if we want a tan, we need to opt for the faux kind.  I was in Kaua’i last week and I’m happy to say that I am bronzed – the real kind.  I wore SFP 30 (and even reapplied!) and instead of burning, I tanned.  There’s no way around that hot Hawaiian sun.  I’m very happy with my bronzed skin.  I happen to think everyone looks better with a tan and whenever I get a glimpse of my tan complexion it reminds me of the amazing trip I had to Kaua’i.  My skin may pay for it later, but right now I’m very happy in my bronzed glory.  Merci Mademoiselle!
