At the Paris Fashion Week with Constance Benqué


Constance Benqué is head of the « Women Luxury » department at Lagardère Active Publicité, which includes all of ELLE magazine editions.

As Fashion Week begins in Paris, Constance gives us her addresses and tips to survive this intense week in style!

Three words to describe yourself ?
I have the honor and the heavy task of leading the ELLE brand in France and around the world.

Your battledress to face a day of Fashion Week ?
Black trousers, a light Zadig & Voltaire sweater with an Isabel Marant jacket and Dior boots. I try in vain to copy the girls from the magazine’s fashion department...

Where to grab a quick lunch between two fashion shows ?
Their cuisine is not very light, but I love the Bellota Bellota restaurant rue Jean Nicot in the 7th arrondissement.

During this buzzing week, where would you go if you had an hour to spare ?
I would go get my nails done at Vernissage avenue de la Motte Piquet or at Christophe Robin's hair salon rue Bachaumont, to see Marie, who always takes good care of me!

If you need a boost during the day ?
A green juice or a glass of white wine.

What do you think Paris Fashion Week has in addition to the others ?

What advice would you give to make it even more attractive ?
Offer a beautiful piece of jewelry from Stone Paris after each show.

The perfect place to relax after Fashion Week ?
My bed, in which I watch Homeland with my children, or a dinner at Le Duc in the 14th arrondissement.
