The woman is one of the most influential French fashion designers. She started her own brand, which is still relevant and wildly successful until today. However, she also led a double life as a Nazi spy!
Documents show that she committed herself to the German cause as early as 1941. She became a paid agent of the SS intelligence. She was involved in a plan that tried to negotiate with Churchill in order for England to cease hostilities with Germany.
When the war was over, she was interrogated by the Free French Purge Committee. They had no documented evidence of her collaboration with the Nazis. She was let go. She also later said that Churchil had helped her. "Churchill had me freed," she said.
