'Valentino'

By Sezz    
Thanks for your comments and votes on my pictures from Versaille, more to come from there but thought I'd have a break from them today.

This was taken in Paris on the Avenue Montaigne, a very stylish part of town Wink Amongst many other classy motors, I was drawn to the reflection in the door of this Daimler - the shop front of 'Valentino', had to take a quick grab shot as the doorman did not look too impressed!

For more than a century, avenue Montaigne has been an ultra-exclusive quarter, exuding hushed chic. In the second half of the 20th century, its image has been considerably embellished and transformed by the presence of high fashion institutions like Christian Dior, Valentino and Chanel, celebrated jewelers, Bulgari and Henry Winston - as well the plush Plaza Athenée hotel, which is the favoritepied-à-terre of a good many European and American barons, Brazilian millionaires, movie stars, royalty and heads of state.

Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.

Regards - Sarah, from an extremely wet and dull corner of Kent x
