CHATEAU D'HAROUE

Sometimes, the best things don't come in small packages. They come in exquisitely overwrought, mind-blowing packages of stunning proportions. Castle-sized proportions. The beautiful French Château d'Haroué is hosting Three Great Creators, the work of Cristobal Balenciaga, Hubert de Givenchy, and Philippe Venet from May 7 to August 17, 2010. Forty - 40! - haute couture evening gowns will be on display, including Givenchy's black duchess satin gown from Breakfast at Tiffany's, and Balenciaga's mink-trimmed wedding dress for Queen Fabiola of Belgium. But perhaps the most surprising detail of all is that this collection has been curated and arranged by the great Givenchy himself, now 83 years old. Located in the Lorraine region of France, the breathtaking architecture and grounds of Château d'Haroué would be enough to woo any vacationer (and the stunning interiors include the largest collection of French royal furniture in private hands). But a castle full of couture, chosen by one of France's greatest couturiers? Genius! 
The original LBD:  Givenchy's Breakfast at Tiffany's Gown, worn by Audrey Hepburn.

Oh, that would be a wonderful site to see! I visited this Chateau years ago while studying with my school in France, but it was not filled with stunning clothes then...

Also jumped over to your Target pillow post. The pillow is perfect for a client's room, I'm stopping by Target tomorrow to see if I can find one. Thanks! Janell

Queen Fabiola's beautiful Balenciaga dress is in my top two or three favorites. Though it was quite heavy, she was a champ through the FOUR hour of church service and administrative ceremony.
