Being French doesn't seem that hard after all. All you need to do is:
-Wear sexy lingerie (make sure your bra and underwear always match).
-Be seductive (this includes seducing your friends' boyfriends and husbands).
-Don't wear sneakers.
-Eat small portions.
-Be intellectual.
-And, in a nutshell, just always look good.

The book was structured with the author, who is British and lives in France, interviewing a number of French women on their style secrets, the author questioning the secrets, then trying out the tips and secrets, and eventually succumbing to the French way of doing things. It was a delightful wisp of a book and she interviews everyone from Segolene Royal, who recently ran for president of France, to Sophie Tellier, the former Miss France. I will definitely read this author's other books.
