The first time I visited the Chateau de Versailles, I was overwhelmed with its beauty and history, and was mesmerized with its Baroque style and sheer decadence! I felt like I belonged there and sensed a strange connection to its past, bringing tears to my eyes. Each time I travel to Paris, I feel I must visit Versailles and bathe myself in its opulence — as if I’m breathing in the essence of an ‘autrefois.’
In 1999, after the storm damage occurred in Northern France, I even ‘adopted’ a tree at Versailles — a program for the re-planting of 10,000 trees; ‘my’ tree is along the Allée de la Reine in the Trianon Gardens, and so, I am represented through nature, at the very place I love.
I hope you will enjoy the linked DIOR fashion video — as it shows beauty of style — both in fashion and in its chosen location!
