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.

Le sue creazioni, realizzate completamente a mano in lunghe ore di lavoro minuzioso, sono dei capolavori, dei veri “gioiellini” di delicatezza. «Adesso, espongo le mie creazioni in un e-shop e vendo in tutto il mondo».

Le tre fragranze Jacques Garcia, sono lui. Sono lui anche l’Eau de cologne Bensimon, l’Eau de Colette, il Parfum Costes…

So they are unsuitable for gardening, unless it’s high-society gardening or the jardins of the Palace of Versailles. She wears them “casual chic” or “elegant cool,” from morning to night, during the week or on the weekend, from the kitchen to the meeting room, at an opening in Saint-Germain-des-Prés or riding a bicycle through the streets of the French capital…

The Parisian man is a contradiction. He’s drawn to the “nice girl” type, but he’s also attracted to the sexy fox. So how do we strike the right balance between demure and provocative?

A man’s gaze goes first to your eyes, then to your mouth and your smile. Your boobs actually come last. The first step in enticing a guy the Parisian way, is to have the right reflexes before your mirror. Here’s a quick guide.

Elegance is a quality of a person presenting a certain refinement and ease in form and movement and, by extension, a person dressed with care as well as sobriety in a non-exaggerated style. However, elegance involves a great many other aspects based on relations with others and the outer world. For example, elegance is the ability to convey strong emotions without being invasive, or show interest in people and things without turning it into a narcissistic curiosity by a desire to stand out, or even to avoid exhibiting ones own abilities and talents. The philosopher Giacomo Marramao tells us more…
