Last night I got to attend the ELLE: Les Nouveaux Talents De La Mode' First Promotion Presentation at the Ministere de la Culture in Paris as a photographer for Getty Images. I had a "moment" when Jean-Paul Gaultier walked in....then Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Alber Elbaz, Agnes B.....you get the picture! Editor in Chief of ELLE Magazine Valerie Toranian was hosting the event with the French Minister of Culture Frederic Mitterrand. I would like to thank my colleague Julien Hekimian for noticing my look of wonder and offing to photograph me with my fashion hero. As I stepped in for the picture Jean-Charles de Castelbajac stepped in with us (AWESOME!) and as the image was about to be snapped Valerie Toranian asked if she should join. Champagne bébe!
