This is the first, and the best, of the books which discusses French women's style.
The book was a present when it was first published and I have read it at least once a year since. It is a combination of the generic tips (eg the importance of sparkling underwear), the very practical (eg naming award winning anti-cellulite lotions) with the personal anecdotes of the author and the individuals that she spoke to in the name of "research". It is neatly divided into topics that can be read independently of each other.
And I will keep on reading when I need a bit of inspiration or cheering up!
