Know Yourself
What counts is how you look at yourself, what you should show & what you should hide. You have to spend time in front of a mirror. Very few women pay attention to that.
Use your head
My style corresponds to the image I have of the left bank woman who pays attention to what's going on in the streets, in politics, in the world. Clothing is also something that happens in your head.
Remember the power of black
Black is a magnificent color - it gives you an outline like a pencil stroke.
Add a little sparkle
I love accessories, bags, shoes, brooches, necklaces. I even like to have a crystal comb or a flower in my hair. If you're wearing a little black dress, a sparkling detail adds a simple & pretty touch.
Have a fail-safe outfit
It's important to have an outfit that always works for you, one that you know looks good when you are in a rush.
Learn the art of packing
I always travel with lots of long jackets, in black, brown, or navy blue, & matching trousers, then I mix & match the jackets & the trousers.
Let your feet do the talking
I love eccentric, quirky shoes with colors & very high heels that are gilded or extravagantly embellished with crystals. A pretty foot underlines a look. It's a way of defining a style.
Dress for yourself
Of course fashion is important, but I think the way you live counts for more. A woman should be herself & dress according to who she is.
Seduce with your style
It's very natural to be sexy, to be seductive, it's a way of being. You can do much by paying careful attention to your clothes, by knowing a length or a certain color that suits you.
Ignore other people's advice
You shouldn't ask for other people's advice, & certainly not your partner's. It's useless. You need to know yourself - that's enough.
