{favourite five: photographer garance doré}

favourite-five-hed
garance-1.4

The New York Times refers to her as “the guardian of all style”, her beau calls her the “Illustratoriste” for her commended work as a fashion illustrator, Vogue.com named her one of the 40 women of the decade . . . clearly, French fashion blogger and photographer Garance Doré’s ultra-stylish influence has been felt by not only the fashion world, but the world at large.

Whether she is covering fashion week in Milan, snapping portraits of fashionistas in New York, posting personal chatty, witty -- yet simply charming -- monologues, sharing her photographs from the latest French Vogue editorial she shot, or displaying her collages and fashion illustrations, the street-style photographer & fashion illustrator's blog evokes a style that goes far beyond trends: the scope of her work is timeless and chic; it is for this reason, the fashion world is at her feet.

Garance’s musings give us a rare glimpse into the thoughts of a fabulously stylish Parisian woman, and even though her posts imply French women are the masters when it comes to effortless style, they still have a few tricks up their sleeves, and this week, she lets us in on some of her style secrets . . .

......................................................................................................

{the top five things french women never leave home without:}

1.
Baume Crème de Rose from Dior, for the pot & the perfectly pouty lips.

2.
A pair of sunglasses -- to provide mystery!

3.
A book by Françoise Sagan because she has an incredible perspective on life and was so rock'n roll -- in the French way, of course.

4.
A pair of Repetto ballet flats (the real dancer ones with very soft soles) -- great after long hours in heels.

5.
A pen. To write, of course, but also to put your hair up when you're tired of having it in your face. I don't know why, but every French girl does that!

Absolutely amazing, I recognize those gorgeous sketches, but it's thrilling to know the woman behind the pen! I must do more research on her now! Fabulous post!

I met her in Paris buying her first Birkin this past November. She said she had a blog that had"done well " this year and was treating herself. Never did I know, at the time, how famous and talented she was!

bravo for the lovely site! juste a little explanation: it's not the pen that slips in the hair of Parisiennes, it's the pencil.
