Bonjour from one of my favourite cities where the 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. This time I spent a lot of the day twirling around Place de Trocadéro in this stunning Jill Jill Stuart chiffon gown
. The iconic spot is truly one of the best locations for an Eiffel Tower photo with the perfectly placed Trocadero fountain in the foreground, and of course I wish we had gone before sunrise to avoid all the other tourists but there’s always a next time!
Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris

An extension of La Galerie, L’Orangerie
restaurant is an atmospheric spot overlooking the famous Marble Courtyard at Four Seasons Hotel George V. As the hotel’s third signature gastronomical restaurant, it offers a new culinary experience that is in perfect harmony with the four seasons of the year. Chef David Bizet’s menu exemplifies the traditional French contemporary cuisine “of elegance, refinement, femininity and respect for nature.”
In truth, L’Orangerie nails the harmony of fresh and bold in their food pairings, with many outstanding courses such as the scallop brushed with caviar, the wonderfully poached langoustine and their delicious pigeon piece. The service is always first-class and sets you up for the day with a smile. Thank you for such a brilliant evening!
