Mademoiselle Lili loves Paris – the museums, the architecture, the pavement cafés, the savoir vivre, the flair of the elegant hotels and, of course, fashion, fashion, fashion.

With her insider column “Paris, mon amour,” Mademoiselle Lili reports for La Biosthetique from Paris, which has been her chosen home for five happy years. 

Art From Hair

Everything Charlie

Charlie Le Mindu creates art from hair and completely overturns our expectations of hairdressing. Mademoiselle Lili is always amazed at what he makes out of hair.

The Paris Fashion World

Everything beige

The Paris fashion world is a parallel universe where things have different locations and names. When everyone is crazy for Fashion Week, Mademoiselle Lili thinks about Loïc Prigent's collection of verbal comedy and laughs

Heute couture

Glitz and Glamour

Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent: if you'd like to experience a different kind of fashion in Paris this autumn, you should swap shopping for a museum. Mademoiselle Lili stood in line too.


Through the back door

A code word, a tiny red door, a walk through the cold room or a laundrette - secret bars, known as speakeasies, are the new trend in Paris...


Right or left?

The Seine divides Paris into two banks - but the term Rive Gauche or Rive Droite means more than just a geographic location. Mademoiselle Lili adjusts the compass.


A roundabout tour of Paris

Even if you haven't yet visited Paris, you can immediately think of at least three sights that you would like to visit at some point. Mademoiselle Lili knows other worthwhile alternatives.


The City of Love

Hardly any other city is known for its incredibly romantic reputation as Paris. Love is supposed to jump out at you on every street corner like a playful puppy... 

Fashion Week Locations

Fashion tells you a lot about a city

The time has come: at the end of February, fashion is once again the order of the day in Paris. Mademoiselle Lili looks forward to discovering places that are otherwise hidden from the public eye.

La Parisienne

The superwomen

Fashion designers, film directors and international women are constantly talking about the irresistible Parisiennes and their unmistakable style. Mademoiselle Lili has put in quite a bit of practice.

Afropunk Festival

Black on white

The Afropunk Festival in Paris is a showdown of diversity and creativity - Mademoiselle Lili is looking forward to a two-day event full of visual and acoustic fireworks.

Hair & Religion

The long and short of it

At her last hair appointment, Mademoiselle Lili realised that she had become rather conservative about her hair. So, she racked her brains about a big topic: hair and religion.


Paris is a box of chocolates

In Paris seduction lurks on every corner - in the form of patisseries and chocolatiers. Mademoiselle Lili dives into this sweet life and asks where all the lovely calorie bombs end up.
