top 5 and 3/4…historically based reasons why Parisians are so stylish: A tribute to the last day of paris fashion week

1. Waterloo: Revenge is chic

2. The spirit of ’68 lives on in jet black hair, spiky statement heels and a nonchalant puff on a cigarette.

3. The Republic: A monarchy is so 18th Century.

4. ‘Liberte, egalite, fraternite’: a brilliant marketing ploy. ‘We take no prisoners and have no passageners’ is the real Parisian mantra  which keeps these fashionistas in a league of their own.

5. Great stateswomen. And Carla Bruni is no exception; model, lover of rock n’ rolls coolest,  late night appearances on Jools Holland and state appearances in head to toe Dior.

3/4.  The White Terror: Perhaps Chanel’s monochrome was some sort of compromise.
