French women shop for "Mr Right"


(REUTERS) - French shopaholics hitting the streets of Paris could now be going home with a man in their shopping baskets.

Nestling in the heart of one of Paris's main shopping districts, the 'adopt-a-guy' (adopte-un-mec) boutique opened its doors this week promising a high-end shopping experience for any Parisians searching for Mr Right.

Eligible bachelors dressed in quirky costumes posed in mock toy boxes -- a whole row of Kens waiting to meet their Barbies.

Meanwhile crowds of women browsed the boutique to see what was on offer, posing for photos with guys who caught their eyes.
