Lessons in Sex Appeal, by Carine Roitfeld.

1. Don't work too hard when you're young.
"It's like when you squeeze a lemon too hard, you run out of juice. Me, I have plenty of juice."

2. If you have figure flaws, move around a lot so people don't notice them.
"If you don't have perfect ankles, still you can move your legs in a certain way and look very sexy."

3. Don't do drugs or hit people.
"I don't want pictures with violence, I don't want drugs, I don't want horrible things like that."

4. Also, cigarettes are so last year.
"Me, I don't smoke. Smoking can be a beautiful gesture for a picture. But it's easy — it's too easy — to make a beautiful picture with a beautiful girl smoking a cigarette. And what is the picture saying, when you have a beautiful girl and she has a beautiful outfit and a beautiful handbag, and a cigarette? No. We have to find a new gesture, I think. Because smoking, it is not good for you. Or for your teeth."

5. Take your clothes off.
"I like to have something every month that is — how you say? — not politically correct. A little bit at the limit. Sex, nudity, a bit rock 'n' roll, a sense of humour. That is very French Vogue."

6. Draw style inspiration from ugly outfits you see in airports.
"Sometimes, when you go to airport and look at the people, you see the worst looks — but the worst looks can give you more ideas than the best looks."
