Since Coco Chanel's birthday falls on the 19th of August, she was a Leo. Karl Lagerfeld had a golden lion statue pawing a pearl in the middle of a platform which provided a fierce and extravagant centerpiece for Chanel's Fall Winter 2010/2011 Haute Couture showcase.

Models emerged out of the giant pearl and sashayed around the pavilion in a mix of sequined, furred, and A-line dresses. Lagerfeld said about the collection to the AP "They're all very discreet, there's no flashy effects. You really have to know about embroidery, about luxury, to see that they're expensive clothes."
