SERENDIPITOUSLY, right after posting my Bastille Day commentary, I spotted a style piece in the New York Times (“Aging Gracefully, the French Way” by Ann M. Morrison; July 15) that observes just how adept Frenchwomen are at resisting time’s ravages. My favorite person quoted: Leslie Caron, now 79. At eight years old, I adored her 1953 film Lili.
