When in Paris go to the Palais Galliera, it was recently restored. There is a superb exhibit of 60 creations from Azzedine Alaia. The dresses are gorgeous with cut close to the body to accentuate the curve of the back and the sexiness of the roundness of the bottom!
Then cross the street and go to the Palais de Tokyo to admire some 140 shoes made by Roger Vivier, an amazing display of bird-like shoes, a canopy of feathers, rustle of taffetas sails, a poetry and romance shoes and elegant pointed shoes and bottiness. Roger Vivier was more of a sculptor and inventor than a shoe creator. You could even fly to Christie’s China and bid on Diamond Dust Shoes by Andy Warhol.
