Ihre wahre Identität war über sechs Jahre lang eines der bestgehüteten Geheimnisse der englischen Literaturszene und führte zu zahlreichen Spekulationen bezüglich der Autorin hinter dem Pseudonym. Die Geschichten aus ihrem Blog erschienen ab 2005 auch in Buchform und wurden 2007 für die Fernsehserie Secret Diary of a Call Girl adaptiert. (de)
  • Belle de Jour est une ancienne call-girl et écrivain de Londres, née le 9 novembre 1975. Après six ans d'anonymat, elle a révélé en novembre 2009 pour The Sunday Times qu'elle était le Dr Brooke Magnanti, spécialiste en neurotoxicologie et épidémiologie du cancer au Bristol Initiative for Research of Child Health. En 2003 elle a travaillé pendant quatorze mois comme prostituée à 300 £ de l'heure pour une agence d'escortes londonienne, alors qu'elle rédigeait sa thèse de doctorat. Sous le nom de Belle de Jour, le Dr Magnanti a tenu un blog qui a eu un grand succès, Belle de Jour: diary of a London call girl qui en 2003 a été choisie par The Guardian comme son blog de l'année. Elle est l'auteur de trois livres parmi lesquels The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl. Son pseudonyme est une référence au film Belle de jour, lui-même adapté du roman de Joseph Kessel, Belle de jour. (fr)

Her first two books were UK top 10 best-sellers in the nonfiction hardback and nonfiction paperback lists. In 2007 Belle's blogs and books were adapted into a television programme, Secret Diary of a Call Girl starring Billie Piper as Belle, with the real name Hannah Baxter. In November 2009, fearing her real identity was about to come out, Magnanti revealed her real name and occupation as a child health scientist. (en)
  • Belle de Jour é divulgado como o pseudônimo de uma ex-garota de programa londrina, na realidade, trata-se da pesquisadora britânica Brooke Magnanti. Com o nome Belle de Jour (a bela da tarde) ela mantém um blog famoso, Belle de Jour: diary of a London call girl que em 2003 foi selecionado pelo The Guardian como blog do ano e que deu origem a dois livros publicados tanto no Reino Unido quanto nos Estados Unidos. O nome vem do livro de Joseph Kessel Belle de jour de 1928, e do filme homônimo de 1947 estrelando Catherine Deneuvee dirigido por Luis Buñuel. Em francês "Belle de Jour" é traduzida literalmente com "beleza do dia" em oposição à "femme de nuit" ou "belle de nuit", mulher da noite (referências comuns a prostitutas). "Belle de jour" é possivelmente uma referencia aos rendez-vous a luz do dia feitos por qualquer garota de programa, incluindo a própria Belle de Jour. (pt)
