Top 10 Beautiful French Women

Some say that French women are more beautiful. I don’t know if that is true. Perhaps the myth comes from a certain poise (also known as discretion), a savoir-faire when it comes to wardrobe, and a light hand when it comes to fixing the ravages of time (also known as plastic surgery). Whatever it is, all ten of these women represent that je-ne-sais-quoi in French elegance and beauty, that women worldwide try to imitate. And these ladies seem to do so effortlessly. These are my top ten most beautiful French women today.

Isabelle Adjani

N° 1. Isabelle Adjani. -Ever since I saw the movie La Reine Margot, I was immediately captivated by this woman’s striking beauty. And her seemingly independent and fiery yet graceful nature only add to her enigma. Born in 1955 she began acting at age 14, in theaters. Actress, model, mother and with a bi-cultural background (her father was Kabylie-Algerian ~they are known for their striking blue or green eyes~ and her mother was Bavarian-German). Isabelle was born in Paris. She’s known for her intense self-implication into the roles she plays.  she has not only has talent and beauty, she has charisma.

Fashion Photo Shoot in Paris

I was strolling by the Eiffel Tower and Trocadéro the other day, and saw this lovely little group of young American women, all primped up and ready for their photo shoot in Paris. I couldn’t resist, and asked their permission to take a few shots. After annoying them for a couple minutes as I snapped a few images, I left a card with one of them, and tossed a cheery thank you as I sauntered off. I hope they had a delightful time being immortalized in their fashionable best in front of the iron lady. Continue reading Fashion Photo Shoot in Paris

April in Paris


Is it Spring yet?!?

Is it Spring yet?!?

Spring keeps teasing us here in Paris. We’ll get a really brilliant sunny day in between several cold and gray ones. It’s almost like you can hear a communal « Aaaaaaah! » throughout Pairs when the random gorgeous day glitters down upon us. and then a disappointed chorus of « Boooooo. » when we wake up the next day and see the drizzle or feel the chill. It was a couple Sundays ago, I think we all returned to work on Monday with a light pinkish hue on our fresh faces. Just about all of Paris was out lounging along the river banks of the Seine. I even ran into Sylvia of Finding Noon.

Hexa by Kuho – Paris Fashion Week SS14

Another fashion week whizzed by before I had time to catch my breath.

I didn’t have the time or energy to get to a lot of shows this season, but I did get to see Hexa by Kuho again, and snagged an interview with the designer afterwards, thanks to my friend Ko Kok who is an all-things-camera man (photography, video etc…).

Highlights from the show were : Continue reading Hexa by Kuho – Paris Fashion Week SS14
