A truly unique keepsake and collectors鈥?item to be treasured.聽聽</strong></p><p>鈥楩or the nearly seven decades of her reign, Her Majesty The Queen has used clothing to create a powerful visual identity that transcends fashion and has made her perhaps the most readily identifiable person on the planet. Angela Kelly, building on the work of the great designers and milliners who have worked with Her Majesty through the years 鈥?including couturiers Sir Norman Hartnell, Sir Hardy Amies, and Ian Thomas, and milliners such as Simone Mirman and Freddy Fox 鈥?brings her own imagination to bear on an iconic 鈥榰niform鈥?that suggests continuity and tradition, and ensures that the wearer is always the most visible person in a room or a crowd.鈥?lt;strong>鈥揂nna Wintour, Vogue</strong></p><p>When Angela Kelly and The Queen are together, laughter echoes through the corridors of Buckingham Palace. Angela has worked with The Queen and walked the corridors of the Royal Household for twenty-five years, initially as Her Majesty鈥檚 Senior Dresser and then latterly as Her Majesty鈥檚 Personal Advisor, Curator, Wardrobe and In-house Designer. As the first person in history to hold this title, she shares a uniquely close working relationship with The Queen.<br /></p><p>In <em>The Other Side of the Coin</em>, The Queen has personally given Angela her blessing to share their extraordinary bond with the world. Whether it鈥檚 preparing for a formal occasion or brightening Her Majesty鈥檚 day with a playful joke, Angela鈥檚 priority is to serve and support. Sharing never-before-seen photographs 鈥?many from Angela鈥檚 own private collection 鈥?and charming anecdotes of their time spent together, this revealing book provides memorable insights into what it鈥檚 like to work closely with The Queen, to curate her wardrobe and to discover a true and lasting connection along the way. </p><p>鈥楾he book documents the unique working relationship between Her Majesty The Queen and the woman who has been her Personal Assistant and Senior Dresser for more than two decades: Angela Kelly. It gives a rare insight into the demands of the job of supporting the Monarch, and we gain privileged insight into a successful working relationship, characterized by humor, creativity, hard work, and a mutual commitment to service and duty. Angela is a talented and inspiring woman, who has captured the highlights of her long career with The Queen for us all to share.鈥?鈥?lt;strong>Samantha</strong> <strong>Cohen, Assistant Private Secretary to The Queen (2011鈥?018)</strong></p><br />

Inspired by Paris, this lighthearted and deceptively wise contemporary memoir serves as a guidebook for women on the path to adulthood, sophistication, and style. Jennifer Scott鈥檚 self-published success is now a beautifully packaged and fully illustrated gift book, perfect for any woman looking to lead a more fulfilling, passionate, and artful life.<br /><br />Paris may be the City of Light, but for many it is also the City of Transformation. When Jennifer Scott arrived in Paris as an exchange student from California, she had little idea she would become an avid fan of French fashion, lifestyle, and sophistication. Used to a casual life back home, in Paris she was hosted by a woman she calls 鈥淢adame Chic,鈥?mistress of a grand apartment in the Sixteenth Arrondissement.<br /> <br />Madame Chic mentors Jennifer in the art of living, with elegance and an impeccably French less-is-more philosophy. Three-course meals prepared by the well-dressed Madame Chic (her neat clothes covered by an apron, of course) lure Jennifer from her usual habit of frequent snacks, junk food, sweatpants, and TV.<br /> <br />Additional time spent with 鈥淢adame Bohemienne,鈥?a charming single mother who passionately embraces Parisian<i> joie de vivre</i>, introduces readers to another facet of behind-closed-doors Parisian life.<br /> <br />While Francophiles will appreciate this memoir of a young woman鈥檚 adventure abroad, others who may not know much about France will thrill to the surprisingly do-able (yet chic!) hair and makeup lessons, plus tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe with just ten useful core pieces.<br /> <br />Each chapter of <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>reveals the valuable secrets Jennifer learned while under Madame Chic鈥檚 tutelage鈥攖ips you can master no matter where you live or the size of your budget.<br /> <br />Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring <i>Parisiennes </i>will learn the art of eating (deprive yourself not; snacking is not chic), fashion (buy the best you can afford), grooming (<i>le no-makeup look</i>), among other tips.<br /> <br />From entertaining to decor, you will gain insights on how to cultivate old-fashioned sophistication while living an active, modern life. <i>Lessons from Madame Chic </i>is the essential handbook for a woman that wants to look good, live well, and enjoy that Parisian <i>je ne sais quoi</i> in her own <i>arrondissement.</i>
