Moving to New York Made Garance Doré Gain Weight

Today, Garance Doré wrote one of her longest blog entries ever. No, it was not about pocket squares, or Scott Schuman, or a cool way to cuff one’s pants; it was about how moving from Paris to New York gave her a muffin top.

[At first] it was cute to be the only Parisian at a table of New Yorkers. They would watch me rip another piece of bread off, order a glass of wine and a dessert and ask me what was the secret of those Parisians who stay thin despite such a devastating diet.

And I’d just laugh saying that everyone in NY is just too skinny, that they have to live a little and no, I don’t work out at all cause I have so many other fascinating things to do in my life. Like smoking a few cigarettes, just to name one. And I’m perfectly fine with my little muffin top, thank you. I was perfectly happy that way.
