No posts for a few weeks and then like buses three in one week!
I just had to share with you pictures of Ines de la Fressange in the latest edition of French Vogue that I downloaded last night.
She is such a zeitgeist figure that like the days of the supermodel all you need is the first name.
I refer to her as the posher French version of Jackie O.
She is from a patrician background but has a streamlined style and despite her privilege she has had to endure public grief with personal affairs being national news in France.
So it seems natural but almost a bit tardy that this edition of
French Vogue was almost dedicating most of the issue to her.
As you can see, it wasn't just a retrospective
to her illustrious career but looking the way she does
she still rightfully earns her place in the pages.
Most civilians could be photo-shopped and injected with
the best collagen around and still not look like this.
There was a lovely collage of her personal photos from various stages in her life.
There was also a pictoral reference to her Chanel days that ended up in a rift as Karl didn't approve of her being the
Marianne of France which he considered rather common.
I love a woman who dared go against the Kaiser.
She also has friends that imparts her with further glamour and cultural wattage by lunching with
Princess Caroline and Victoire de Castellane.
But all is well again and this was a nice gesture to show she has no feelings towards Karl by donning a classic Chanel jacket.
