A Chic Philisophe
France’s ‘most influential intellectual’: Elisabeth Badinter, is officially the most chic Philosophe I have ever seen. She was fifteen when she read Beauvoir for the first time, dresses in a uniform of cashmere sweaters & the only jewelry she wears is a horseshoe pendent on a gold chain.
Being an intellectual in France does have rock star status after all.
I love her for piercing through ambiguity in life.
Her latest book: Le Conflit: La Femme et la Mere
