Hav­ing spent some time – but nearly not enough – in France and de­vour­ing al­most ev­ery book on what makes the French tick, I’m as cu­ri­ous as any other Queens­land woman who strug­gles to pull off that ef­fort­lessly el­e­gant look that seems to be in the Gal­lic genes. English ac­tor Char­lotte Ram­pling once said: “French women have been made beau­ti­ful by the French peo­ple – they’re very aware of their bod­ies, the way they move and speak, they’re very con­fi­dent of their sex­u­al­ity.” But what is the truth be­hind the stereo­types – you know the ones, that French women don’t get fat, never have plas­tic surgery (they just age well), and can wear jeans and a white T-shirt and look like a su­per­model? In this week’s Qweek­end, Su­san John­son speaks with Paris-based au­thor Marie-Mor­gane Le Moël ahead of her up­com­ing Bris­bane visit and dis­cov­ers that all is not as it seems. What a blessed re­lief!
