The Gilded Life

My best fashion moment was in 1996, when Karl took over the entire first-floor Imperial Suite for his couture show, to observe the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mademoiselle Coco's death.  He had two shows that brisk January day, and between them Naomi Campbell, Shalom Harlow, and Kate Moss came to my room--a simple one with two armchairs and the bed in a neoclassical alcove--and took naps.  Karl and I walked in to find them all lined up asleep under layers of fine pique sheets, like fairy princesses, false eyelashes still in place.

  1. I really enjoyed this Vogue spread, fabulous looks and gorgeous hotel :)

  2. I have to admit I've been attracted deeply by the noble andgorgeous pictures.
