Garance Doré Thinks New York Gym Freaks Are ‘Insane’


The fashion blogger, who is relieved to be back in Paris, writes: "I swear, I know tons of people who get up at 6 a.m. to go running! Even me, I’ve thought about doing it! Of course it didn’t happen because I’m utterly lazy!!! MY GYM OPENS AT 5 IN THE MORNING!!!!!!! Are people totally insane or what? And get this, the control freakitude and search for physical perfectitude never ends! Calories are indicated on EVERYTHING! A cookie, that’ll be 500 damn calories please!!! And Starbucks is paranoia-land. You really don’t want to know how many calories are in a Frappucino [sic], trust me on this. It would never be like that in Paris. Well, okay, maybe in my Paris. You get croissants, cigarettes, and spend your day on the café terraces. Yep, no guilt either. So some day I’ll have to give you a play by play from my gym. We’ll crack up together." [Garance Doré]
