In keeping with our fascination for all things French, we're adding to the conversation with a book fitting for such a theme, 'How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style and Bad Habits' by writer Anne Berest, journalist and screenwriter Audrey Diwan, Chanel muse Caroline de Maigret, and film producer Sophie Mas.
Caroline de Maigret is a model, Chanel ambassador, music producer and author. She is also a woman who pulls off mannish attire with incomparable ease and owns the most celebrated modern wardrobe in Paris. She is the living epitome of a Frenchwoman of substance, teaching us unexpected ways to express our femininity.
From going to sleep with damp hair to enjoying the face you have today and finding character without seeking perfection, when it comes to beauty standards, this book is a witty breath of fresh air. The pearls of wisdom that this book imparts are no better summed up than with this quote:
“In short, you’re not a slave to the cult of the perfect body—so learn to make the best of what nature gave you.”
