Guerlain - La Petite Robe Noire

 After our photo session we went inside Maison Guerlain.
 The special La Petite Robe Noire exhibition by graphic designers, Kunzel and Deygas was on.
 Have you seen the video for La Petite Robe Noire?
 It's Guerlain's nouveau addition to the perfume collection (formerly only available to private clients). I promise you it's delicious. I loved seeing the designer's work-in-progress sketches.
 If you'd love to have a super GLAM photo portrait of yourself shot in Paris, fabulous fashion photographer, Carla Coulson is now doing private portraits.
 You can see before/afters here thanks to a little help from makeup/hair/lighting artists + Carla's arts.
 Carla is shooting her divine portrait sessions at tres luxe Hotel Lancaster on the Champs-Elysees and around Paris. I peeked in just before my meetup.
 French Girl will go Shanghai for 2 weeks so I'll be Paris house-sitting end of April. I hope to catch a glam photo shoot with Carla (croise les doigts/cross the fingers). If you'd like a glam portrait of your pet painted in Paris email me.

  5. You did a wonderful job on both of those paintings.. really captured Shanghai's personality. She should be really happy. How fun to be going back so soon.

  6. Shanghai looks just like a little dog I know...sweet. Great portraits you did, Carol. Sounds like you're having fun--when do you move to Paris?

  7. He's looks like a Parisienne chien. Very pampered and he eats macarons. I'm going to post photos of my two darlings on my blog. They are Japanese Chin.

  15. Once the word gets out that Paris Breakfasts is moving to Paris (long overdue, by the way)I think you should be greeted as you come up out of the subway by that hunky rabbit, and his wheelbarrow, and be paraded around town.

    I think I need to commission a Wilson print in front of Laduree.
