I would never say no to a party, particularly one hosted by Longines at the Chateau de Chantilly in France! Their gala dinner set in the main hall amongst the likes of Raphaels (& the rest of the duke’s massive art collection) was of course an opportunity to dress to the nines in Gucci and practise my French (thankyou iTranslate).

(Thank you Prue for an unforgettable evening).
The grounds of the Chateau (built circa 1528) inspired Marie Antoinette’s Hameau de la reine in the Gardens of Versailles. Lucky for the gala attendees the Prince Henri d’Orleans (duc d’Aumale) put the Chateau & his art collection in his will so it would become a museum (& place to party).
