Présentation de l'éditeur

Smart and very funny' Richard & Judy 'Witty, and very elegantly written... verbal Viagra' Sunday Times 'A fascinating - and illuminating - read.' Daily Mail 'Funny, warm and charming' French Magazine I devoured it. It is so funny and sharp! (Marco Redolfi, Head Of Pr Of Dolce & Gabbanna Why is it that French women look just as glamorous in a T-shirt and pair of jeans as in a sleek designer dress? How do they look sexy, chic and timelessly elegant from eighteen to eighty? Pencil-thin, stylishly dressed and, always, impeccably groomed? In search of answers, travel and lifestyle journalist Helena Frith Powell goes behind the scenes to investigate the famous French je ne sais quoi. Talking to fashion gurus, beauty experts and It Girls, professional seducers, lingerie designers and personal shoppers, she discovers a whole new world: indispensable wardrobe and beauty secrets; shopping done the right way and exercise routines promising lasting success; advice on sex toys, family life, relationships and clandestine affaires. French women, Helena realises, achieve maximum effect with the least amount of effort. And with the help of a few little secrets, you too can become impossibly French ...

An interesting look at French women, albeit upper class French women. A little heavy on the stereotypes, but her perspective makes you think.

I'm a born Parisian, French working mum of two. I'm glad to hear from the book that I probably miss something in my everyday's life: such as spending a lot of time and money on make-up, massages, lingeries and so on in order to be a classy French!
Honestly this book is amusing at first but starts to be boring after a while, because there are a lot of clichés. I suppose the writer has only encoutered French bourgeois people, not the real women who work for a living and have not enough money nor time to waste on beauty parlours and haute couture.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Same book different title 15 mars 2009
Par R. Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book was very well-researched and written and I enjoyed it tremendously; however,last week I received a copy <<All You Need to Be Impossibly French>> by the same authorAll You Need to Be Impossibly French: A Witty Investigation into the Lives, Lusts, and Little Secrets of French Women As I sat down to read the book, much to my astonishment and disappointment, I quickly discovered that I had already read this book under the title <<Two Lipsticks and a Lover>>. While I truly enjoyed <<Two Lipsticks>> I found this to be somewhat disconcerting. Evidently this same text has been published by two different publishers with two different titles.

I did enjoy the text when I read it the first time under the title <<Two Lipsticks. . .>> so yes I do recommend the book even with two different titles.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Get Real! Not Peter Mayle's "A Year in Provence"...... 21 novembre 2005
Par dessert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Very readable about expat life in French village. The author lives in Languedoc Rousillon unlike Peter Malye who lives in Provence. She was from England and moved to a small French village with her husband and kids.

She has a good knowledge of French bureaucracy: utilities, buying property, social security and points out accepted social behaviour required of interacting with the local French. What strikes me is her sincerity to integrate as fully as possible into French life instead of living on the sidelines like Peter Mayle also an English author of "A Year in Provence" who seems more like a loafer and a parasite feeding off the French.

As the author is a young mother she tries her best to get her kids integrated in French schools to get a better start as being French. Three quarters of the book is full of anecdotes about family life in a small French village. The last quarter deals with French officialdom, the whys and hows of dealing with the nitty gritty of it.

Par Gypsy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Sheesh... I've been living in Paris for about 7 months and got this book from another ex-pat. I thought it would be fun. I think it was really an excuse for the author to meet well known French women and get into exclusive/expensive stores. I found most of it to be pat, over generalized, contradictory and highly stereo-typed. The book describes a small percentage of French women, primarily the elite, but not necessarily. The average french woman is not as different as the book would have you believe. Yes, there are some truths in there: you will rarely see any french people, male or female, wearing sneakers unless they are on their way to or from some form of exercise. Yes, you will rarely see clinically overweight people, male or female. I think the author should have focused more on her own experiences and generalized a lot less. Peter Mayle did a much better job on this and his books are much more enjoyable.

Nothing new. The book is just okay. Not as amusing as I thought it would be. Enjoyed Paris to the Moon a lot more.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Honest and refreshing look at french women. 28 décembre 2014
Par Ann Casolaro Minard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book was a refreshing honest look at french women! I am a long time lover of all things French and have quite possibly read every book out there on this subject but this was the first book that didn't leave me feeling like an uncivilized oaf! Most books written on this subject are usually very preachy but Helena writes on this subject in a girl's girl kind of way that gives me hope for changing my oafish ways:) She gives an honest (good bad and ugly) look in to the lives of actual French women. All I can say is that I quite Simply loved this book.
