How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits is the title of the forthcoming book (Doubleday, 2 September 2014) cowritten by Caroline De Maigret that contains myriad pearls of wisdom from a quartet of accomplished women from the French capital. There is an electricity in the air in anticipation of this volume’s release and rightfully so — what woman doesn’t want to exude the effortless cool and timelessly seductive style of Caroline De Maigret? The September 2014 issue of Vogue sits down with the Chanel ambassador to discuss the book, but really her approach to life in general. “I believe you should always be ready to meet someone, whether it is your favorite writer or the man of your life.” Observations like these are part of what make Caroline so irresistible to both designers and editors alike, not to mention the women, and it should be said, men on the street and in salons the world over. Pick up the latest Vogue and come September Caroline’s book, both are real page turners.
