A Fressange Look

ROGER VIVIER designer Bruno Frisoni is so thrilled that his muse, Ines de la Fressange, has been awarded France’s Legion of Honor that he has sketched a special portrait of her to mark the occasion.
Having been named a Chevalier of the Legion, de la Fressange joins the prestigious ranks of former fashion world recipients – among them Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino and Suzy Menkes – and is the first model to make the list.
Maître Georges Kiejman, a pre-eminent attorney in France and former Minister of Justice under François Mitterrand, awarded her with her medal at a private ceremony within Roger Vivier’s Faubourg Saint Honoré boutique yesterday, for which she wore a Prada suit teamed with Roger Vivier shoes and accessories.
