HOW DOES A BEAUTY ICON RELAX?
“During summer, I go to my house in Saint Remy de Provence! I love the scent of Fig Trees in the garden, when I see those trees blooming, I immediately feel on holiday… For Christmas it would have to be in the mountains in Switzerland when we are sure that there will be snow! We have been renting a splendid chalet in Verbier for many years so we always feel so at home there. My husband and I sail with our family in the Mediterranean Sea in summer as well. It is gorgeous and so peaceful!”
“I also love to go to the Nuxe Spa rue Montorgueil in Paris or the Mandarin Oriental Spa in London.”
WHAT’S SHE READING THIS SUMMER?
“I love true stories about powerful women and this summer I think I am gonna love the biography of Eleanor Roosevelt.”
Eleanor Roosevelt: First Lady Et Rebelle by Claude-Catherine Kiejman
“whether it is relaxing at home with my family, walking from gallery to museum, reading a book or listening to opera, I make sure to make some space for my family and my pleasures.”
