Coco Chanel (1883-1971)Yes, that Coco Chanel. The woman born Gabrielle was, throughout her life, an unabashed slut. After she left an orphanage at 18, she performed in bars and cabarets and earned her diminutive name from shortened version of "coquette," the French word for a kept woman. She was fond of affairs and had many, most notably with Hans Günther von Dincklage, a Nazi party intelligence officer. Coco, too, worked for Nazi intelligence under the code name Westminster.
