French Women Don't Get Fat, Mireille Guiliano

Advanced Style, Ari Seth Cohen

Who is Sue Baker

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Mireille Guiliano has already taught us why French women don’t get fat; now she tells us why they don’t get facelifts. The simple truth is that French women accept aging, they don’t fight it, but they do use it to their best advantage. They look after their skin, their health, their bodies – and Guiliano advocates a good haircut and good shoes as going a long way to making a woman look fantastic whatever her age. In an entertaining mixture of fact and anecdote, she explores the art of aging gracefully, the most important aspect of which is continuing to enjoy life to the full!

French Women Don't Get Facelifts Aging with Attitude by Mireille Guiliano

Mireille shares the secrets and strategies of aging with attitude and joy, offering personal anecdotes while divulging French women's most guarded secrets about looking and feeling great. With her signature blend of wit, no-nonsense advice and storytelling flair she addresses everything from lotions and potions to diet, style, friendship and romance. For anyone who has ever spent the equivalent of a mortgage payment on anti-aging lotions or procedures, dressed inappropriately for their age, gained a little too much in the middle or accidentally forgotten how to flirt, here is a proactive way to stay looking and feeling great, without declaring bankruptcy or resorting to surgery.

'Like a fabulous friend sharing her secrets, Mireille divulges, encourages and inspires. And she does it with joy.' -- Pamela Druckerman

'French women have incredible style and confidence. Mireille is an inspiration and her book is a must-read for any woman wanting to look better and ultimately feel more beautiful.' -- Bobbi Brown

'French Women Don't Get Facelifts is [...] ostensibly as light as a meringue but actually as satisfying as Guilano's recipe for duck with caramelised mango [...] It's a no not only to the scalpel and Botox needle, but also to fad diets and costly anti-ageing serums [...] It's a Oui, Oui, Oui to facials [and]diets where nothing is restricted but everything is encouraged in moderation.' The Times

'C'est magnifique!' Today (US)

'It's hard to resist a chance to tackle the wrinkles in your self-esteem with Guiliano's wholly engaging take on how women of 40 and upwards can attack the ageing process with attitude and style , whether through skincare secrets and fashion tips or the role of relationships and the importance of relaxation. Mais... it's about so much more than botox. I was completely won over by it.' Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller
