Simone de Beauvoir



I saw this film on TV the other night about feminist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir. She would have been 100 years today. Not only a brilliant writer/thinker but also a great dresser. I'm taken with her way of wearing headscarves in particular which I plan to copy ;-) And I WILL finish reading The Second Sex. Sometime.

I saw the movie yesterday, un grand film que je garde précieusement sur mon enregistreur numérique. The dialogue, music and images of this film are fabulus.

Mme de Beauvoir was a brillant woman. Satre refused the litterature nobel prize in 1964 probably in respect for Mme de Beauvoir who was a mentor to him.
