Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian. Today, I’m a wedding-planner and my husband directs a famous fashion magazine. I don’t have to tell you that I have a front seat at all of the fashion shows and I’ve developed a good general culture about fashion. Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.

Fashion designer Christian Louboutin has developed an international following for his distinctive red-soled footwear.

I'd never seen shoes like that”… 

Mention the name Sonia Rykiel and you think of the French designer’s geometric red bob, striped knitwear but mostly, eminently wearable clothes.
