2016 Best Fashion Book

"From four stunning and accomplished French women – at last – a fresh and spirited take on what it really means to be a Parisienne: how they dress, entertain, have fun and attempt to behave themselves. The authors – Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline de Maigret, and Sophie Mas – unmarried but attached, with children – have been friends for years. Talented bohemian iconoclasts with careers in the worlds of music, film, fashion and publishing, they are untypically frank and outspoken as they debunk the myths about what it means to be a French woman today."

Witty, charming and with a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude, It is a must-have for anyone who loves fashion, worries about growing up, or loves just about everything Alexa Chung."
