Ines Legion d' Honneur

French style icon Ines de la Fressange is to receive the Legion d' Honneur award. The ceremony will take place in Paris on the 18th. There is apparently a certain controvercy as to wether she is "worth it". LOL! There are very few women who epitomise French style, a certain insoucience and Joie de Vivre more than Mme de la Fressange.

On October 2007 I have written a post about Mme de la Fressange with photos of her and her daughters at home. Some time earlier this year I found that she had graciously posted a comment to my post! Now if that is not gallic courteousness, I do not know what is.

I first read it in this post, then checked it on the web. You may want to read this article in The Times and that one, too.

Felicitations, Madame. Avec mon eternelle admiration!

Oh Irene, you and I have so much in common. Ines de La Fressange was my hero as a child. This was a model with a brain and a sense of humor: I was mesmerized by her. Of course: she was everything was not: Tall, lanky, dark-haired, self confident and fearless. If Bill Murray can get the Legion d'honneur, then by Golly, so should she!
