Introducing Audrey Diwan

A free spirit who's never in one place for long, Caroline de Maigret meets inspired and inspirational women from around the world, exclusively for Lancôme.

Meet Audrey Diwan, the 34 year-old screenwriter, journalist and co-author of Caroline de Maigret’s book “How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are”.

Why Audrey? “Audrey sets me off laughing more than probably anyone else in the world -- with everything from her own funny little expressions, to the way she sees things and how she talks about her daily trials and tribulations. She just fascinates me, especially with how she seems to balance 15 different jobs, her professional life and her children (who she looks after wonderfully) all with a sense of talent and ease. When others find themselves overwhelmed with work, she just continues to take everything in stride with her very own characteristic ease. It makes me really happy to see and I feel so privileged to have her in my life.”

Audrey’s take on beauty: “If Diana Vreeland was known to say ‘I love artifice’ I’d also add “as long as it’s not too noticeable!’ I think that beauty comes down to experience and the experience of beauty. Every woman should have the right to be able to change, to experiment, to reinvent herself and to make herself different, otherwise life would be quite boring.”
