Hubert de Givenchy, Kenzo and Azzedine Alaïa aren’t known to make the rounds on the party circuit, but they were part of an all-star turnout last week in Paris when Bettina Graziani was presented with the medal of Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters.
In presenting the honor, Frédéric Mitterrand, France’s minister of culture and communication, told Graziani: “You became the emblem of a certain French idea of fashion.” Discovered by Jacques Fath, Graziani served as a model for designers such as Chanel, Valentino, Lucien Lelong, Givenchy and Alaïa, and inspired lensmen like Robert Capa, Henry Clarke, Irving Penn, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Pierre et Gilles.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
