Céline Kaplan is an icon as a French Public Relations. Her clients include ERES, Ladurée, The Webster Miami, among other esteemed international brands. While I was in PARIS, I of course asked Céline for her insider advice. Here is her list of musts in Paris for any chic visit:

EATING

Restaurant CLAUDE COLLIOT, 40 Rue des Blancs Manteaux

21, 21 Rue Mazarine

Ladurée for the best French macarons in the world, as well as chocolate making classes (by appointment only but worth it, absolutely decadent). 21 Rue Bonaparte

La Grande Epicerie de Paris (part of the bon marche) is the most amazing world food ever, with the best wine cellar in Paris. A dream – from the best indian spices to rare sauces to exotic fruits to GOLD MUSTARD (like liquid gold). It’s a show stopper. 38 Rue de Sèvres

SHOPPING

I love the Caspule collection of Erès at the Madeleine store designed by LAURE HERIARD DUBREUIL launching today – the windows are amazing.

Christophe Robin Salon The best colorist in the world at Le Meurice Hotel. 228 Rue de Rivoli

Francis Kurkdjian Store If you have the budget, go for a bespoke fragrance.

The NEW SHOE department at the Bon Marché – AMAZING selection and the architecture is under a verriere like the grand palais – flooded with light.

AND the Bon Marché “no appointment needed” pedicure and manicure service – just as good as in New York.

The Porte de Clignancourt vintage flea market on Sunday.

Bring back from pharmacies the CHARCOAL pills to clean your system and coup d’éclat ampoules for last minute face lift.
