The ruthless and sexist world of fashion described in a sparkling and humorous style.

At eleven years old, Diane is the muse of a children’s clothing brand. On the eve of an appointment with the famous fashion designer Luca Volpone, a huge pimple appears on her nose. This will be the occasion for her to understand that she is a disposable product and that the future of a supermodel is not hers.

Press

“Clémentine Beauvais attacks the clichés that condition the lives of young girls with an infectious enthusiasm. Her tone is cheerful without ever being sententious.”

Le Figaro littéraire.

“Full of humor and spice, a novel that realistically depicts the world, sometimes too bright, of fashion and its glitter.”

Le Dauphiné libéré.

“This very funny novel with a very positive message is a real favorite!”
