Ines de la Fressange is the epitome of Parisian Chic. Model, author, businesswoman and once the muse of Karl Lagerfeld, last year she walked the catwalks at the Paris Spring Fashion Shows for Chanel, is currently the brand ambassador (where she was approached and invited to revive the brand) of the French footwear label, Roger Vivier and has just partnered with L’Oreal Paris to be their new global spokesperson. It’s fair to say she knows a thing or two about style.
As part of her role as re-inventor at Roger Vivier, Ines lets the cameras follow her around her favourite Paris neighbourhoods, to share with the reader, her favourite haunts. She recommends where you should shop for lingerie, shows you her favourite place to buy flowers and takes you shopping through the flea markets. The Ines Diaries are cute and quirky.
For those of us who have experienced the beauty and allure of Paris, you will remember and reminisce, and for those who haven’t you will be inspired to start saving your pennies.
I love Ines’ style because it’s casual, yet sophisticated, elegant, subtle, timeless, effortless & understated. Although she might just be wearing a white t-shirt and jeans she still looks incredibly chic. It’s in the way she stands, the way her hair is always “done” yet, at the same time a little “un-done”.
Its in the way she holds her handbag and the way she looks straight down the camera lense, smiles confidently and doesn’t try to hide her wrinkles. It’s the way each outfit, though simple, is accessorised beautifully – a great shoe, with a vintage belt, a man’s watch, a fabulous bracelet, and a hat or leather gloves. It’s in the small detail.
