Literature: How to be Parisian
Well, this is definitely book of the books for fashion girls. Can you recall a lady who would say: “Nah, I don’t care about Paris!” ? We are not that type, so we stick with Paris, the vibe of the city, and no matter where we are – love, style and bad habits make us more or less “les Parisiennes”.
This book, written by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mas – talented iconoclasts and friends for years – give their very original views on style, culture, attitude and men alongside making fun of their complicated, often contradictory, feelings and behavior. But don’t expect too much of this book, because it is full of cliches, yet fun, romantic and inspiring.
Shhh… they also say that the most famous Parisiennes are FOREIGNERS. Like Marie Antoinette, Josephine Baker, Romy Schneider and Jane Birkin. That makes the game easier for us! Who would have thought?!
