If you ever doubted that the French owned je-ne-sais-quoi chic, then check out the new book 75 Parisiennes by lensman Baudouin (yes, one word, like Madonna). A freelancer for Elle, Grazia and Le Monde, the Frenchman shot a crew of Parisians in their own environs over a six-year span. And these aren’t your usual oft-photographed It girls; every turn of the page brings a new discovery — not to mention an impressive peek into the City of Light’s kaleidoscopic culture and style. In a world of ubiquitous street-style photography, where every pose melts into the next, Baudouin’s artfully arranged compositions are a breath of fresh air — witty, visually stunning and each one utterly unique.
