Pub. Date:

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. In short, frisky sections, these Parisian women give you their very original views on style, beauty, culture, attitude and men. 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. Letting you in on their secrets and flaws, they also make fun of their complicated, often contradictory feelings and behavior. They admit to being snobs, a bit self-centered, unpredictable but not unreliable. Bossy and opinionated, they are also tender and romantic. You will be taken on a first date, to a party, to some favorite haunts in Paris, to the countryside, and to one of their dinners at home with recipes even you could do -- but to be out with them is to be in for some mischief and surprises. They will tell you how to be mysterious and sensual, look natural, make your boyfriend jealous, and how they feel about children, weddings and going to the gym. And they will share their address book in Paris for where to go: At the End of the Night, for A Birthday, for a Smart Date, A Hangover, for Vintage Finds and much more. How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are will make you laugh as you slip into their shoes to become bold and free and tap into your inner cool.

display_description "Four fabulous, smart, savvy French women offer up their highly amusing insider take on Parisian life, love, and liberty How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are brilliantly deconstructs the French woman's views on culture, fashion, and attitude. Unlike other books on French style, this one is full of wit and self-deprecating humor. The authors--Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, and Sophie Mas--who are all in their early to late thirties are unmarried though attached, most have children, and are highly accomplished. Bohemian freethinkers and iconoclasts, they are not afraid to cut through some of the myths. They say what you don't expect to hear, just the way you want to hear it. They are not against smoking in bed and are all for art, politics, and culture; making everything look easy; and going against the grain. Sports are something to talk about in bars, and maybe, yes, your mother did do a little something subtle to her face after all. In 288 pages, with 100 black-and-white and color pictures--many taken by the authors--How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are will explain those confusing subjects: clothes, makeup, men, culture, and lifestyle"-- "Four fabulous, smart, saavy French women offer up their highly amusing insider take on Parisian life, love, and liberty"--
