Inés de la Fressange, 54 years old, ambassador of style for Roger Vivier, muse of Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier. And now, she is the incarnation of the Parisian chic for L’Oreal Paris, whom she represents in Cannes festival. She is so cool, read here her ideas about beauty and style:
The Wall Street Journal called you “voluptuous” but you look pretty much the same to me as you did 20 years ago on the Chanel runway. How do you keep yourself in shape?
Winston Churchill always said the best exercise is no exercise so let me put it this way; I do as much exercise as Churchill! And I never do Botox or plastic surgery either. I went to a beauty salon in July for a day and swore I would go back every day in September, but I haven’t been back since.
Why did Gaultier choose you to be in his show this time?
I think he wanted to show that he is working for women, he is at their service, if you like. I like the fact that he didn’t try to disguise me or make fun of me in some way, by making me wear black nail polish like the other models. I was wearing my own kind of makeup and my own hairstyle. I just went like myself. It was a charming message in the middle of a very sophisticated collection.
