There are beautiful women the world over rocking enviable personal styles and oftentimes we do forget about them in favour of our French icons. I try not to be biased but as France is on my doorstep and France is where I take my inspiration; the French woman is my muse.

“Rouge”: When It’s All You Need

Sometimes a little rouge is all you need.
