Find in this page articles about style and how to find the je ne sais quoi. This expression literally means 'I don't know what', it is when you want to speak that you cannot describe.

 

 

 

THE CANNES FILM FESTIVAL'S LOOK LIKE A FRENCH STAR

 

Here we go. The 70th Cannes Film Festival has begun. A glamorous, magical event, forget classicism, discretion and normality, make space for breathtaking high-heels, some glitter… the fashion is to be over sublime, over “magnifique” and we must not forget the less is more for the Parisienne look.

We all dream of playing the stars, walking up the stairs on the red carpet, shining all night long, being photographed at our best. Spotlight on chic… work on your style, you will be guaranteed success. 

MAKE A DIFFERENCE, OWN YOUR UNIQUE STYLE

 

Nowadays, we are constantly bombarded by all types of advertising and marketing that try to convince us what is the best for us: from what we have to eat to be healthy, where we have to go out to be trendy to how to dress to make sure we are in the frontline of fashion. However, I don’t know about you, but I am gradually feeling more oppressed by this desire to standardise people, to make me look like Madame Tout le Monde (Madame everyone) without even considering what I like, my personality or my current cravings.

WOULD COCO CHANEL TAKE SELFIES?

 

This question occurred to me when I was talking with a fashion designer friend Susan Dimasi of MATERIALBYPRODUCT about her future campaign.

I previously introduced Susan as a fashion designer and real lover and admirer of Chanel when I wrote about participating in her selfie campaign. Selfies have become a big phenomenon and why can’t we use this selfie fashion to introduce a collection.

And suddenly we were wondering what Coco Chanel would think about social media? Would have she created her hashtag #Cocoandfabulous or #forgetthehashtagIamCoco? Would have she tweeted her new collection? Or would have she been more adventurous and started a blog by sharing her thoughts about all the fashion faux-pas she encounters?

A LITTLE BLACK DRESS IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

 

A cocktail, a dinner, an important meeting, a date and maybe love at first sight, another day of “nothing to wear” or a party on one of your trips (maybe Canada? wink) and you still don’t know what to wear? Keep in mind just one thing: the-little-black-dress-is-and-will-always-be-très chic. We all have a little black dress, an essential in our wardrobe and if not, it’s certainly time for you to go shopping. It is the wardrobe “must have”.

FRENCH YOURSELF WITH ACCESSORIES

 

“I can recognise a French woman the way she wears her scarf”. How I was amazed! Here is the thought of one of my “French stalker” friends (I love to call her like that as she follows all things French and j’adore).

What made me think about the way French women wear accessories. Do we only rely on an accessory to build our effortless chic? And does it contribute to this je ne sais quoi?
