A Paris Book (french version). Much has been written about the Parisienne mythical and adulated woman whose refined flippancy has made fame in the world. But the Parisienne is a legend, an archetype, a dream. Only the Parisiennes, these women of flesh and bone with their varied origins and destinies which embody to their own way the charm and the spirit that are given to the women of Paris. Jeanne Damas and Lauren Bastide met twenty of them to draw the subtle and realistic portrait of the Parisiennes of today. They open the doors of their homes and make us crisscross Paris to give us their own definition of elegance their good adresses and their life marked forever by the French capital.
