Colette (Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, 28 January 1873 – 3 August 1954) was a French novelist nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. She was also a mime, an actress, and a journalist.

WILLY: She married Henry Gauthier-Villars (1859–1931) or "Willy", his nom-de-plume,a well-known author and publisher, and her first four novels — the four Claudine stories, Claudine à l'école (1900), Claudine à Paris(1901), Claudine en ménage (1902), and Claudine s'en va (1903) — appeared under his name. Colette and Willy separated in 1906, although it was not until 1910 that the divorce became final. She had no access to the sizable earnings of the Claudine books — the copyright belonged to Willy —

GIGI: In 1944 she published what became perhaps her most famous work, Gigi, telling the story of sixteen year old Gilberte ("Gigi") Alvar. Born into a family of demimondaines, Gigi is being trained as a courtesan to captivate a wealthy lover, but breaks with tradition by marrying him instead.

PALAIS ROYAL: she had an apartment at the famous address, where many of her books were written, at the end of her life she was bed ridden but would have visitors such as Gide, De Beauvoir, Cocteau and even Capote went to pay his respects.
