My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A lovely novella written by Colette.
The book tells the funny story of a teenager who lives with her grandmamma and Aunt Alicia. She is raised in order to become a stylist “coquette”.
And then Gaston comes up: is she going to marry him or not?
A movie Gigi (1958) was made based on this book. Starring: Leslie Caron, Maurice Chevalier, Louis Jourdan. Directed by Vincent Minelli.
According to Wiki Colette is directly credited with the discovery of a young, unknown Audrey Hepburn, whom the elder chose on sight to play the eponymous Broadway lead in Gigi.
There will be a new production of the play Gigi on Broadway 2015.
