Audrey Hepburn had it. Grace Kelly had it. Louise Canova does not. Elegance, that is. Nor does she have the answers to get her life, her looks or her marriage back on track. Then one day she discovers a faded hardback in a second-hand bookshop. Elegance, on A-Z of style written by French fashion expert Madame Antoine Dariaux, is a revelation. From Accessories to Zippers, there is nothing that Madame cannot advise upon, including types of husband (and how to manage them) and shopping with girlfriends (don't).
When Louise takes the book to heart, her lite is transformed. But as her old self begins to disappear, it is clear there is more to true elegance thon she bargained for. Looking the part is only the beginning.
