Overview
For any woman who last saw forty on her speedometer comes a sparkling new primer for aging the French way with grace and style. Frenchwomen of a certain age (over forty) are captivating and complex. They appear younger than their years and remain stylish throughout their lives. They look at birthdays as a celebration of a life well-lived and perhaps a good reason to go shopping before they dress to perfection for a celebration of another anniversaire. American-born journalist and blogger Tish Jett has lived among the French for years and has studied them and stalked them to learn their secrets. Exploring how their wardrobe, beauty, diet, and hair rituals evolve with time and how some aspects of their signature styles never change, Jett shows how Frenchwomen know their strengths, hide their weaknesses, and never talk about their fears, failures, or flaws. After all, in France, beauty, style, and charm have no expiration dates "

This book adds more support to the belief that the French are better at everything—eating, raising children, and of course, efficient application of cosmetics. An American in Paris, Jett was the style editor of the International Herald Tribune and the editor of American Elle. Her research for this book involved observing fashionable friends and visits to French estheticians, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, pharmacists, internists, nutritionists, and personal shoppers. Backed by these experts, Jett doles out advice with exactitude: “I recommend, as do estheticians, that for an intensive, post-pajama winter treatment, we sleep in a layer of the butter. You must have an old pair of sweat bottoms and a T-shirt someplace. Remember your socks. And, do I need to say this? Don’t ever wear that get-up outside the privacy of your own home.” Jett’s comments and sprinklings of French (“Hair Rules: Non, Non, et Non”) give the book a lively personality. Sure, Jett can be downright ridiculous (“Pierre, my personal jeweler...”), but where else can readers peek inside the closets of French women (over age 40, une femme d’un certain age, to whom this book is dedicated, and the name of Jett’s blog) and find such details as “large Hermes scarf as a halter.” Each chapter is indulgent fun. 50 color illus. Agent: Lauren Galit, LKG Agency. (Oct.)
