French Madame in Mykonos, Greece

Remember when I created an imaginary Christmas wish list in 2013? Remember I hoped to see Santorini and the rest of Greece in 2014?

Well... it happened! Following the law of attraction, I guess you could say
it manifested in my life (as well as a few other things on my wishlist).

Before I show to you the stunning Santorini, here are my vacation photos of Mykonos,
which was just as beautiful!

I love that Mykonos city is right by the water and has a few sandy beaches.

All of the luxury yachts and cruise ships were a pleasure to see.

I also visited Rhodes, Athens, Napflion, and Katakalon.
And am embarrassed to say I'm booking another Greece getaway in October to Crete!

Couture Fashion Week in Paris

Twice a year, Paris transforms into the glitterati capital of the world
and showcases Couture fashion of the leading designers.

Unfortunately, not receiving any invitation ;) to the shows,
I'm making a show right here on FrenchMadame.com!

Let's start with my favorite:

Every pieces is as stunning as the other. I love the Chanel suits, but the train of the wedding gown is truly magnificent!


Next, a little Italian flavor:

In a New York State of Mind

For some reason my mind keeps wandering to my New York trip I took a few years ago.
I've been watching several NYC-based movies (The Great Gatsby, You've Got Mail) and
television series (Sex and the City) to relive some of the scenes that I actually saw in real life.

Help!
I'm desperate for traveling back to the States, and my plans to re-visit
change every year... :(

I guess for the upcoming year, I'll have to satisfy myself with my pictures from 2009.
Here's what I miss:


The vivid Times Square.

The gorgeous sceneries and views in Central Park.

Beautiful street view from the Plaza hotel.

After reporting about the 2014 Met Gala, I miss the Metropolitan Museum.

And its American Wing in it.

I miss quirky SoHo.

And stopping by Tast-D-Lit (several times a day).

And Crumbs Bakery.

But most of all, I miss the iconic view of the city skyline - which has never left me.

Have you been to NYC, French Madame followers?

The Best Dressed at the 2014 Met Gala

That one night where fashion's finest come together in New York City, at the Metropolitan Museum
was just last Tuesday evening.

I find that the attendees are usually better dressed than actrices at the Oscars.
More risk-taking, more glamour, more couture...

Here are my favorite 10 looks from the evening.


#1 Dita von Teese in Zac Posen

#2 Chloe Grace Moritz in Chanel Couture

#3 Suki Waterhouse in Burberry

#4 Charlize Theron in Dior Couture
