PARIS — The fifth annual Rives de la Beauté event, which highlights the link between the City of Light and beauty, began here today.
The five-day happening involves four walks spanning different parts of Paris — including the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, Rue Saint-Honoré, plus the Marais and Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhoods — and encompassing boutiques, museums and conferences. It’s all meant to reflect beauty’s multifaceted character and how it is connected with other disciplines, such as fashion, literature, film and art.
