I imagine that a French woman in France is like Clark Kent on Krypton. She doesn't seem exotic or special, because everyone around her has the same innate ability to look charmingly undone (yet still, somehow, never sloppy). The whole country has rumpled, sexy bedhead and effortless dressing on lock.

Then, of course, there are the rest of us: the mere mortals to Superman's intergalactic brethren in this little analogy. We'll never stop striving for the je ne sais quoi of Gallic life. Luckily, the 15 bits of advice from Lou Doillon, Carine Roitfeld and more extremely chic ladies from the land of macarons (and Repetto, and Avène, and Chanel . . . le sigh) make it a bit easier.
