Les Ambassadeurs

A brunch at Les Ambassadeurs is the perfect thing to fortify one before a day of exploration, and this legendary 18th century rococo room at the Crillon certainly sets the mood for our next intended destination – Versailles! Les Ambassadeurs has drawn high society and artists alike to its hallowed tables since the nineteenth century – and now as ever, it continues to delight and inspire.

Yes, I’m wearing my favorite Gucci leather jacket again, but we were only in Paris for a couple of full days – we’ll try to mix it up a bit more on our next trip! I’m also wearing a shocking pink shirt with contrast white collar and cuffs by Turnbull and Asser, black pearl cufflinks by Seaman Schepps, gray Maison Martin Margiela jeans, belt in black patent leather with silver leather trim and grommets by Gucci, Tom Ford loafers in black and saddle leather, KVA for Oliver Peoples sunglasses and my fragrance is Creed Windsor.

    Another fantastic shot of you in an opulent setting ! I just adore these images you are posting. I found one I had printed out stuck in a book about Palm Beach last night… it was you standing in a vignette at the Chinese Porcelain Company… I will frame it ! Very inspiring and beautiful. Thank you.

    A one hundred % perfect ensemble, cleverly juxtaposed amidst the grandeur of the Les Ambassadeurs. Accessories, particularly the shoes, all work. You have a very refined, yet modern eye for details. I’d like you to wardrobe me one day!
