In Paris is a window on the world's most stylish city by two quintessentially Parisian women: Jeanne Damas, the it-girl, model, and actress whom GQ called 'the coolest, most beautiful French girl in France', and Lauren Bastide, former editor-in-chief of French Elle.

The portraits are illustrated with more than 100 gorgeous full-colour photographs in Jeanne Damas's inimitable style, as well as lists of secret Parisian hideaways and style tips: from the five different types of red wine to order depending on the occasion, and the bars to drink them in, to the best red lipsticks, and places to be kissed.
