Join French fashion journalist, style icon, and author of The Art of Sleeping Alone (her memoir about practising celibacy at age 27 for more than a decade), as she discusses fashion as a means of exploring authenticity, and what selfies can teach us about ourselves. The former fashion editor at ELLE who became an Instagram sensation in her 50s shares what social media can teach us all about the pleasures of being more comfortable and confident in our own skin.

This programme is made possible with the support of the Embassy of France and includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
