RUNWAY MAGAZINE. 13 June. Prix de Diane 2010

The most of the hot event of the summer it's Prix de Diane on Hippodrome of Chantilly. Ladies in hats gentlemen are in smokings like in all good times :-)))))... all good times - so classy, so fabulous.
The Prix de Diane, sometimes referred to as the French Oaks, is a Group 1 flat horse race in France which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Chantilly over a distance of 2,100 metres (about 1 mile and 2½ furlongs), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.
The event was inspired by the Oaks Stakes in England, and it was named after the mythological goddess Diana (French name Diane). It was first run on May 18, 1843, and it was originally restricted to horses born and bred in France. Its distance was set at 2,100 metres, which is around 300 metres shorter than that of the English Oaks.
Voila - the history :-). Until now we enjoy it! I'll keep down on page the video for a while - such wonderful memories...

I'll keep video from this evening too :-)))). So enjoyable evening.

RUNWAY MAGAZINE. May-June. Henri IV and Metterrand, Gentils Hommes in Senate, and Nocturne Rive Droite

14 May. 400 years Celebrating King Henry IV.

Henry IV - one of the most famous kings in the history of France, well-loved for his quote about “chicken in the pot”, renowned for his white plume and known by the legendary nickname, “the Green gallant”, Henry IV was also the King of the Edict of Nantes, which granted Protestants the freedom to worship - a monarch keen to reconstruct the kingdom that had been devastated by previous wars.
2010 is a year to pay tribute to Henry IV of France and Navarre, who was assassinated by Ravaillac upon leaving the Louvre Palace in Paris, on 14th May 1610.
A number of events are scheduled throughout the country during this anniversary year. The most fancy event was Illumination show in front of monument of Henri IV on Pont Neuf in Paris in presents of Minister of culture Frederic Metterrand, Louis XX Bourbon-Parme (if France was still kingdom he could be the king), Princess Constance de Bourbon-Parme, Prince Charles-Emmanuel de Boubon-Parme, Prince Jean de France Duc de Vendôme and fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.

On previous picture you may see Frederic Miterrand, Louis XX.
And now splendid photo below of all celebrities who were presented:

22 May. Club Dinner in Senate of "Gentle Men".

Parisian club of "Gentle Men" - Cercle des Gentils Hommes exists for quiet long time and has reputation of private club who involved with Orders de Malta, claim chivalry and focus on the preservation of traditional moral, historical, cultural and represents the European nobility, taken in all its branches. The specificity of the Circle is to admit, in addition to members of the old French nobility, those of the nobility conferred by the sovereign heads of houses, or by a foreign authority legitimate, and those of the nobility continued.
I like to be there surrounded by knights of honor and Russian Princes. It's definitely what every Princess wants to be cared by wonderful men around :-).

2 June. Nocturne Rive Droite 2010

I believe I should be precise from this event in June - the most of wonderful event in France about art. It's firework of art in Paris actually. Would you imagine all over the streets you have red carpets, all galleries are open, everywhere champagne, friends, artists. It happens ones a year around one week. One day - left side of Seine and another day - right side of Seine... Fascinating :-).
Every year I enjoy it so much.

Wonderful events of 2010 with RUNWAY MAGAZINE

So, my dear friends. Let's start from the very fancy event - LE BAL DE PARIS even it actually happened 5 December 2009. Anyway I think it's a good start.

Le Bal de Paris exists 15 years in Paris. And this is very fancy event. Last year it was absolutely splendid. I was directing Paris Fashion Academy Award during the evening. Fascinating.

After there were several wonderful balls but they were at the end of the 2009. I fancied the most Ball de St Anges organized by Baroness de Saint Didier. It was exactly at my birthday. The orchestra were playing "happy birthday to you".
Then it was another lovely ball but stop!
I decided to start this RUNWAY MAGAZINE blog from 2010. So.... I leave wonderful past where it belongs - in the past, and now we are moving into splendid future :-).


So the New Year 2010!

In April 2010 we had absolutely wonderful event Le Bal des Princesses organized by Daniel Marie Rouyer. So wonderful that all Paris still keep talking about. This event passed several blogs, our dear Medias mentioned it not ones. Great success :-))). 2000 wonderfully dressed Princesses and Charmings were dancing there event after midnight :-).
I'll keep and this video for a while in main page, so you can see how wonderful it was.
