I loooove this photograph. So Parisian, so polished, so glamourous.

But on closer inspection, I think it might be impossibly chic.

While I often ride around in stiletto heels, I’ve never yet managed to ride in a pencil skirt without splitting the back seam in a very unladylike way. You’d better hope that the models’ skirts were extra stretchy.

Still, it gives me a bit of inspiration for some movie-star makeup and 40s elegance for my next cycling outfit.

What do you think?
