Charlotte - Style & fashion

Bonsoir, my name is Charlotte. My mother, ex-model for Saint-Laurent, is American but I’ve lived in Paris since I was 4 years old. Since my mother was often abroad for fashion shows, my French grandmother, a dressmaker for Chanel, taught me the way to become a real Parisian. Today, I’m a wedding-planner and my husband directs a famous fashion magazine. I don’t have to tell you that I have a front seat at all of the fashion shows and I’ve developed a good general culture about fashion. Although I’m the personal shopper for my friends, my strong points are marriage and elegance.

In terms of fashion, their tastes are pretty conventional. The results below might just surprise you.

Ecco il condensato e lo spirito di una delle più belle e originali riviste che siano mai state create. Si chiama ÉGOÏSTE ed è rigorosamente stampata in bianco e nero… Fin dal 1977, anno della sua prima apparizione in edicola, quarantuno anni fa, sono usciti soltanto 18 numeri! Appena si sparge la voce che un nuovo numero di ÉGOÏSTE è in vendita, se non siete dotati di velocità supersonica per recarvi ad acquistarlo all'edicola più vicina, non lo troverete più: è già esaurito!

Jeffrey Leatham and the Four Seasons George V and its flowers have been bound together. Their story cannot be separated, even though Jeffrey Leatham is now artistic director for the George V.

Angled long stemmed roses. Hydrangeas preening for the guests. Every kind of flower in every imaginable design. At night, literally hundreds of candles are magically lit and scattered among vases throughout the hotel.
