This classified French monument historique has been in the Beauvau-Craon family since it was completed in 1732. The current proprietor, Princess Minnie de Beauvau-Craon, is a direct descendant of Prince Marc de Beauvau-Craon who in 1720 commissioned the architect Germain Boffrand to build it in the remote countryside near the Moselle and Meurthe rivers. A while back I was invited by the Princess’ daughter to visit the chateau and be a guest at the opening of the old school couture Givenchy, Venet and Balenciaga exhibit. Apart from meeting the chic Princess and having a feast for my eyes whilst walking around I had the immense pleasure of meeting Hubert Givenchy himself. I am rarely star struck. But I skipped a breath when I met him. He is tall, handsome and a very elegant man. And there is the association of course to his muse Audrey Hepburn. I think that today we sadly only rarely have the pleasure of meeting men and women that are elegant in character, manners and appearance. Why? Is it because our pop culture is selling us their packaged version of “fast-food” idols? And thus the youth thinks this to be model of lifestyle to aspire to? It’s as if there is a general consensus that Madame Hepburn or Monsiuer Givenchy types are not sellable? Is vulgarity cashing in nowdays? Is it because our lifestyle is becoming busier and faster and people don’t have time to stop, think , observe and appreciate subtlety? Is there way too much information and lots of people are getting lost or have lost identity? Is our civilisation evolving or regressing to cave men esthetics?(ie. Kardashians) I could go on and on with questions. Let’s leave at this and the beautiful history and tradition that Chateau d’Haroue brings with it into our century.

I popped into Hom le Xuan’s showroom in Gstaad today. This Paris based interior designer, furniture and landscape designer of Vietnamese origins creates incredible furniture sculptural pieces and gives a magic touch Franco-Asian touch to interiors. In his own words he looks for ” artisanal symbiosis instead style fusion”.
Promenade 79, Gstaad from 15th December until March 4th

Vogue On is an influential and covetable series of short books from the fashion bible Vogue, celebrating the defining fashion designers of the last century. The first four books in the series illuminate the significance of Elsa Schiaparelli, Coco Chanel, Christian Dior and Alexander McQueen, each pioneers of their time, and draw extensively on the Vogue archive, the definition of portraiture and fashion illustration.

Peter Lindbergh – Known and the Unknown, Milan, Gallery Carla Sozzani – 6th September-4th November 2012Leave a comment
This year the Serpentine Pavillion is designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei the celebrated Chinese artist. I’ve been going every year now and this year’s party was really good- loved listening to Azealia Banks live.
She rocks and also the interior of the Pavillion was made of cork which is quite something. Since this is an art event I wanted to go all out- and I did- in a SS2012 Nicholas Oakwell Couture gold sequin dress with an ostrich feather white skirt and white collar.
You can see my outfit from the evening and all the others on this link on Vogue UK http://www.vogue.co.uk/spy/celebrity-photos/2012/6/27/serpentine-summer-party/gallery#/image/25
My shoes were my Nicholas Kirkwood and the clutch is from the Fall 2012 Anya Hindmarch collection.
I wrote about this bag earlier on my blog- it’s such a little jewel. Read on for some more looks from the Nicholas Oakwell Spring Summer Collection Read more
