Praise for French Women Don't Get Facelifts

“Like a fabulous friend sharing her secrets, Mireille divulges, encourages and inspires. And she does it with joy.”

Pamela Druckerman

“French women have incredible style and confidence. Mireille is an inspiration and her book is a must-read for any woman wanting to look better and ultimately feel more beautiful.”

Bobbi Brown

“French Women Don’t Get Facelifts is [...] ostensibly as light as a meringue but actually as satisfying as Guilano’s recipe for duck with caramelised mango [...] It’s a “no” not only to the scalpel and Botox needle, but also to fad diets and costly anti-ageing serums [...] It’s a Oui, Oui, Oui to facials [and]diets “where nothing is restricted but everything is encouraged in moderation”.”

The Times

“C'est magnifique!”

Today (US)

“It's hard to resist a chance to tackle the wrinkles in your self-esteem with Guiliano's wholly engaging take on how women of 40 and upwards can "attack" the ageing process with "attitude and style", whether through skincare secrets and fashion tips or the role of relationships and the importance of relaxation. Mais... it's about so much more than botox. I was completely won over by it.”

Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller

“With her charmingly conversational tone, Guiliano walks readers through the mental and physical steps of aging with attitude, covering everything from cosmetics to spiritual life.”
