This e-book offers a world of elegance and joie de vivre at your fingertips!
Ines de la Fressange, drawing on decades of experience in the fashion industry and French high society, offers her personal tips on style and beauty, outlining how to achieve that quintessential Parisian look.
Delivered with sincerity and wit, Ines helps you to build a wardrobe around just seven affordable basics coupled with high fashion touches and great accessories. Step-by-step dos and don’ts ensure that you will never again get lost in your own closet, while her 10-minute beauty routine and short list of travel essentials are perfect for retaining your sparkle even when you’re on-the-go. And if, like Ines, you are not content with confining Parisian chic to your wardrobe, she also offers pointers on how to bring it into your home to add your signature style to any space—big or small.
Ines’s favorite sources for clothing, beauty, and decorating finds—with direct links from the e-book to the brand websites—are accompanied by fashion photographs of her daughter alongside Ines’ own snapshots and charming drawings.
A guide to Ines’s “secret Paris,” including hotels and restaurants, itineraries for unusual places to visit, and a bespoke guide for family fun features additional links to useful websites. Written with panache in collaboration with Elle fashion journalist Sophie Gachet, this truly is the ultimate guide to Parisian chic.

A New York Times Book Review bestseller 

Praise for the Paperback edition:

“The high priestess of chic pens a tome on all things stylish.” – Sunday Times Style Magazine
“The step-by-step guide to looking cool, chic, stylish, and above all nonchalant, as only Parisians can.” – Vogue
“Parisian style is an attitude, a state of mind. Between rocker and ho-hum bourgeois, a Parisian is always first, never second. A Parisian steps lightly around the fashion traps of the day. Her secret? She breathes the air du temps and puts it to good use, her way, and always with the same aim: fashion should be fun.”
