  "Entertaining" by lpollinger (see profile) 03/27/19

Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli are rivals in the couture word of fashion in Paris before the war. Not only are their styles different, but their politics as well. Lily, a young widow travels to France to visit her brother and through his girlfriend becomes involved in both women's lives.
The descriptions of Paris and the clothes are done very well, but the story itself just drags on a bit too much.
