We can all admit that when it comes to elegance and chicness, we look to French women for inspiration. They have this certain je ne sais quoi that compels people to pay attention — but with minimal to no effort at all. And so when we had the chance to get tips from French creative consultant Julia Restoin Roitfeld, who is the new face of APM Monaco, we grabbed it — along with the many style nuggets we'll make sure to use for navigating our lives this year.

What were the highlights of your 2018?
I felt that 2018 was a great transition year in many aspects for me, both personally and professionally. Firstly I moved again, which is always an exciting thing for me, and I have also started to work on my own brand hoping to launch it in 2019. Going to Australia on a road trip to celebrate the New Year was also a great way to end 2018.
How do you best describe your job to someone?
I like to describe it as a Fashion Creative Consultant. I think because I also do modelling jobs, people often forget that I am also a creative person. I studied at the Parsons School of Design and my very first job was in an Advertising Agency before even modelling and working as a freelance consultant.
