Nous Aimons les Français

Maybe it’s my vow to read Proust this year, but I find myself filled with such yearning for France and all things French which is why the 2008 Winter edition of  T Magazine caught my interest.

Beginning with the cover story on French actress Eva Green who appeared alongside James Bond in Casino Royale, perfecting that very proper British accent right before betraying him. There’s also a portfolio of Gallic stars, including Carla Bruni, or Madame Sarkosy if you prefer, Vincent Cassel and the euphoniously named Clémence Poésy. Elsewhere, Cathy Horyn profiles Balmain’s Christophe Decarnin whose brand of louche glamour has the style world enamored; Daphne Merkin interviews the art-world provocateuse Sophie Calle; Christopher Petkanas remembers the decorator Madeleine Castaing; and Catherine Deneuve muses on her favorite trench coat.

An exclusive video of the designer Agnes b. and a slideshow of the singer Sylvie Vartan’s life in pictures prompted me to renew my passport.
