Alber Elbaz Awarded for His Impact on Paris


LANVIN creative director Alber Elbaz has been honoured by the city of Paris for his impact upon it. The designer was awarded the coveted Grande Médaille de Vermeil de la Ville de Paris by Parisian Mayor Bertrand Delanoë this weekend at a ceremony within city hall.

Elbaz thanked Chloéhoncho Ralph Toledano for "opening the doors to Paris" by recruiting him from Geoffrey Beene to Guy Laroche, and to Lanvinowner Shaw-Lan Wang for welcoming him eight years ago as her creative director, WWD reports.

"There's so many things," Elbaz enthused when asked what he most loved about the City of Light. "It's a dream city and it's a city of dreamers. I will be original, and I will say Parisians!"

And rightly so......his designs from clothing to accessories are truly impeccable!

Style Icon: Iris Apfel

This eighty-six year old lady is the epitome of style. She wears big, bold jewelry and beautiful ornate clothing. So popular is she, that a book was written about her titled: THE IRREVERENT IRIS APFEL: RARE BIRD OF FASHION. The book contains clothing and jewelry that is absolutely breathtaking. I like the fact that she has and revels in her "individual style". She does not follow the "fashion path"....she has created her own.

Gracious Beauty Audrey Hepburn

I think that she will always be remembered most for her role in Breakfast At Tiffany's, but from what I have read about her, she was a beautiful person inside and out. Here is a quote that was spoken by her that I think sums up the type of person that she was...."never let yourself grow up believing that anybody if different from anybody else.....love each other and do what you can for your neighbor".

"Lady Day"

Billie Holiday gave new meaning to singing a song.
