The perfect book for anyone who has ever dreamed of living in Paris
Profiles of twenty real-life women of Paris - artists, activists, booksellers, and filmmakers, aged fourteen to seventy, living in tiny attic studios, grand apartments, or houseboats - are accompanied by more than 100 full-colour photographs by French it-girl and fashion designer Jeanne Damas, as well as tips on secret Parisian hideaways and the French art de vivre: from the five types of red wine to order depending on the occasion, and the coolest bars to drink them in, to the best red lipsticks, and places to be kissed.
In Paris dispels the myth that there is only one type of Parisian woman, and offers a rare glimpse of the city that real Parisiennes live in - taking us into their homes, their careers, their style - and what being Parisian means to them.
Witty, elegant, and modern, In Paris reveals the secret to living like a Parisian, wherever and whoever you are.

A portrait of Paris itself emerges . . . in these tributes to a fabled city . . . reminding armchair travelers that if we can't all be Parisians, maybe we can at least go there someday (Booklist)
To say that I was utterly disappointed would be an understatement. I read the entire book, and then threw it in the trash can. This is not a book on fashion, beauty or style. It is hurried, unplanned, leftist attempt to get women to join a feminist movement. Many of the so called experts are young activists who have yet to figure out how to live with strength and peace. The thread of liberal propaganda (because Donald Trump) was maddening.
As a mature, conservative, Christian, American woman who has overcome one trauma after another - in a free country with FULL RIGHTS AS A WOMAN - I was deeply disturbed by the (mis)information portrayed as "French Style".
I figured I would add this book to my small stack of "pretty to look at and dream of being that girl" books... but it turned out to be a lot more. The inspiration for this book was the November attacks in Paris, and the authors wanted to re-learn to love their changing city. The women they interview span the neighborhoods and represent different ages, careers, races, ethnicities, and perspectives. I found it really interesting to read about what each woman thought was important, and the interviews seemed to carry a unique voice for each subject.
Combined with the beautiful, moody photos, the humorous interjections to lift up a sometimes heavy topic, and the tips for places to visit (already mapped for my upcoming trip), this was a real winner.
