9780060757342: A Guide to Elegance: For Every Woman Who Wants to Be Well and Properly Dressed on All Occasions

A stunning new-look edition of the style bible from the 1960s written by French fashion guru Genevieve Antoine Dariaux which provided the inspiration for Kathleen Tessaro’s novel of the same name.
A timeless version of What Not to Wear.

'Being beautiful is no guarantee of happiness in this world. Strive instead for elegance, grace and style.'

Written by French style guru Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux, Elegance is a classic style bible for timeless chic, grace and poise – every tidbit of advice today's woman could possibly need, all at the tips of her (perfectly manicured) fingers.

From Accessories to Zippers, Madame Dariaux imparts her pearls of wisdom on all things fashion-related – and also offers advice on other crucial areas in life from shopping with girlfriends (don't) to marriage and sex.

Something no girl's handbag should be without this season, this is the ultimate guide to looking good and feeling great.

Review:

‘Reprinted with an ironic twinkle.’ Observer

‘Charming and entertaining…The perfect gift for anyone who fancies themselves a cut above Trinny and Susannah’s sartorial sniping.’ Express

Featured as one of the ‘Books of 2003’ in the Daily Mail, The Times and the Independent.

About the Author:

Madame Genevieve Antoine Dariaux has spent most of her life in Paris, but now lives in the South of France. Even as a child she preferred to accompany her mother to the dressmaker’s rather than go to the movies. Her talent for design and making costume jewellery led her to open her own fashion house, and her success led eventually to Nina Ricci, where she was the directrice for many years.
