How the Tell-All Got Told

Mega-bestseller. A first print run of 200,000 copies released September 4 and already out of stock in many stores and being reprinted. Valérie Trierweiler’s kiss and tell off Merci pour le Moment is a publishing success. Lying, cheating politicos beware: French women don’t keep quiet.

Legendary Lingerie in Paris

There are a few things you will quickly notice about Paris:  a boulangerie on just about every block, a pharmacy on every other block, and upscale lingerie boutiques displaying their seductive wares as commonly as a baguette. Unlike Victoria’s Secret, which appeals as strongly to men clientele as women, the lingerie boutiques are decidedly for women. […]

L’Amour Toujours

Happy Valentine’s Day! May it be so very French. Thanks to Eye Prefer Paris for this image of a classic French moment.
