Well it was hot and it was sunny so the ladies of Chantilly, which is in the Oise département of the Picardie région of France, dressed for the temperatures with bold colors and light fabrics. Just 25 minutes outside Paris, this area is the epitome of French sophistication and all things chic.
Alexa and Sophia Pessoa display once again effortless show style
It was such a contrast from Hickstead and I really admired the elegance of all the spectators who came from all around Paris to watch. The French can have this effortless way of dressing that I fell in love with, the first time I visited Paris. It was the same in Chantilly with beautiful dresses and crepe blouses as the garments of choice. Light fabrics were essential with the high temperatures and sophisticated back drop of Chateau de Chantilly. The atmosphere just screamed silk!!!
