PARIS — There isn’t a Chirac effect — at least not yet.
Even as anti-French sentiments fester in the U.S. and Britain over the strident comments against a war with Iraq being made by French president Jacques Chirac, French fashion and beauty executives continue to downplay any potential impact on their businesses. They express disbelief about any boycott of French fashion and urge a broader, long-term perspective on Franco-American relations.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
