Of all the topics that continue to fascinate fashion-obsessed women, the most enduring always come back to the French. What is thatthing that French women have? How do they look constantly, effortlessly chic? What are their secrets? The obsession with Parisienne style continues to spawn books, YouTube series, podcasts and dedicated Instagram accounts (the latest @parisiensinparis, is a personal favourite).

Consistency and nonchalance. Hupperts decades-long commitment to outfit repeating speaks to the delicious paradox at the root of good style: You have to care, but you cant care too much.

Her clothes are always designer (usually Armani, occasionally Chanel) and always fit her like a dream, but she wears them with the indifference of a person who just threw any old thing on, oblivious to whether shes doing the school run or walking the red carpet at Cannes. French women seem to innately know what most women take decades to realisestyle is rarely about the clothes themselves, its about the attitude of the person wearing them. Attention to detail, self-awareness of what suits your own body and an appreciation for craftsmanship are simply accoutrements.
