À la Française

French Women Style

Just when I was becoming a bit tired of the ‘French-women-have-better-style’ drumbeat, Net-a-Porter’s magazine, The Edit, covered the topic with aplomb. The Edit‘s second issue, out last Thursday, pays homage to the chic Parisienne, and coincides with the fashion flock’s arrival in the City of Light.

Who wouldn’t want to look long and lean like the Paris Vogue editors above.  They sport perfect run-around looks that could go from drop-off to meetings. Toss a pair of flats in your bag and you are set to go.

And Carine. In the accompanying interview she talks about being a babushka (grandmother in Russian)– I love a woman who embraces her age; her honesty is fresh and oddly youthful.

  • French editors are the epitome of easy cool chic. Love their look and the minimalism of it all. Carine is an icon and an inspiration. LOVE!
