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.

Roger Vivier is often remembered for dressing a list of exceptional women. Not only did he design the shoes Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II worn in 1953 on her coronation day, he also crafted acclaimed creations for the greatest personalities of his times: the Duchess of Windsor, Princess Soraya of Iran, Marlene Dietrich, Elizabeth Taylor, Brigitte Bardot and, of course, Catherine Deneuve in “Belle de Jour”, the film in which the iconic heels featuring the silver buckle made their first appearance. Dive with us into this fascinating story…

The mystery of stilettos revealed… Scientists have observed that stiletto heels accentuate the movement of a woman’s hips, while shortening their stride...

THE PARISIAN'S IT BAG

The Parisian and her handbag…a love story over the centuries. It can be mini, just enough for a phone and a credit card although very often huge, heavy and an annex to our home. We love it. During a well-filled day, it even turns into a set of matryoshkas, the Balenciaga shopping bag housing a Fendi evening bag and, of course, a makeup bag, not forgetting the shoulder bag for things that have to be found quickly…

Since 1764 Baccarat has written the chapters of its remarkable history in sparkling letters. Founded in Lorraine, by permission of King Louis XV, the world’s most famous Crystalworks has, over the ages, become a symbol of superb craftsmanship and French Art de Vivre. The name Baccarat reverberates like an echo of outstanding pieces, extraordinary places and unforgettable parties.

While the closing of the iconic Colette boutique marked the end of an era, it has also given life to a new address that has the fashion word very excited…

Simon Porte Jacquemus started his own label in 2009, aged just 19. Credited with bringing a freshness to Paris’ fashion scene. He treads a neat line between the conceptual and the commercial via twisted and deconstructed shirt dresses, asymmetric blazers and statement blouses. His poetic approach to presentations, cinematic campaigns and noted Instagram presence have made him a force to be reckoned with. 

For savvy shopping, wait for the sales! It is the ideal time to find your favourite brands at up to half price or even more sometimes. And the year 2019 marked the end of the ‘floating sales’, sales at other times of the year, so, the next not-to-be-missed sales period in Paris will start on Wednesday January 9 to February 19

Ho conosciuto Giuseppina Sansone al Circolo dei Lettori alla presentazione del libro di Nathalie Peigney “Sophie la Parigina”. Era seduta in prima fila e la sua eleganza raffinata e ricercata spiccava in un pubblico già molto elegante. In effetti si occupa di moda, è consulente d'Immagine e Personal Shopper. Ci parla di eleganza e di Parigi.

The well-“red” Parisian… In wintertime, I think the color red gives us Parisians a little lift. It’s warm, it looks good, and it’s flamboyant! We Parisians wear it with black, gray or white. Anything can look great in red (handbag, gloves, coat, that sexy little dress). But keep the look sober, if you want to achieve Parisian elegance.
