Book review: Paris Through a Fashion Eye

Filled with Megan's stunning, detailed illustrations, Paris: Through A Fashion Eye reveals the city as you've never seen it before. In 2008 Hess illustrated the New York Times number one selling book Sex And The City - written by Candace Bushnell. These places pictured and elaborated on are for the most part for the rich, famous, and celebrated, and although the 'average joanna' would probably not be physically prevented from stepping foot in these places, would still likely hesitate to enter just from the sheer exclusivity of the establishments. From people-watching on rue Saint-Honoré to cocktails at the Ritz, this is Paris at its most chic. Registered in England and Wales. What is proffered here can be found in any travel guide and surely online in abundance. So if you want to see what Sophie Monk would look like in designer gear in Paris, have a gander.
