Via: Paris Air: How to become a stylish Parisian

We found you the best friend of your dreams, the one that would show you all the “almost secret-places” in Paris that only the happy-few know about. Of course, there is Le Louvre, the Galeries Lafayettes and the Champs-Elysées, but the Parisian woman always prefers places you don’t talk about as much or that you give away as a favor to a dear friend…

Relax, « there is no need to be born and raised in Paris to get the style of the Parisian ». Phew ! If Inès de la Fressange says so… ! Former French model, Chanel Muse, designer, stylist, business woman and journalist, Inès de la Fressange publishes « La Parisienne », a guide made like a scrapbook that she illustrated herself. She playfully unveils  her style, beauty, home and cooking tips as well as her favorites addresses. Who said you could never become a wise Parisian ? You’re welcome !
