Caroline de Maigret’s coauthored book How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits, published early last month, is an absolute charm. Still, at 272 pages the volume demands a bit more time than the morning’s café et croissant will permit. Enter i-D, the publication that today has produced a fantastically charming video digest of 10 ways in which to be Parisian starring Caroline herself. From telling the most fashionable white lies (“I’m still at the show…I’m backstage”) to preposterously fetching a baguette across the rue on a motor scooter, Caroline has viewers covered. Definitely buy Caroline’s book and read it, but in case you cannot quite get to all that fabulousness just this moment, watch the short film. In either case, do both, Caroline’s wisdom like her style is timeless.
