urbanChanel; The act of being perfect, most awesome person you'll ever meet who is beast in everything. She is unique, athletic, and beautiful, and one of the coolest chicks you’ll ever know. She is normally petite and brunette with fair soft skin. Her personality is strangely odd yet seductively alluring. Every guy WANTS to get with a Chanel. She’s a girl of considerable beauty who appears to take pleasure from teasing males. Chanel’s bodies are sacred and getting one in bed is not easy, but when they decide to give someone their love, they are by far the best. They usually give you full attention & have an intense stare that can be intimidating, but the are so sweet there is no need to be intimidated…sometimes. Most Chanel’s have participated in some dance, like ballet to show their class, grace, poise and elegance. They are loyal. If you have ever wronged a Chanel you should be eternally ashamed of yourself. If you piss off a Chanel she is more likely to make your life such an utter shit of hell for a VERY LONG TIME than forgive you any time soon. Once you have a Chanel, you’ll never be bored.
