The Grandeur of Versailles

The grandeur and opulence of Versailles is hard to articulate in words and easier with sounds, in particularly, gasps or 'oohs and ahhs'.  My life changed forever when I visited the Gardens of Versailles. I could have spent days wandering the impeccably manicured gardens and laying beneath the perfectly sculpted linden trees while the heady aroma of roses filled the air.  That being said, it is only fitting that the fashion world would be just as captivated by its beauty and use both the gardens and golden chateau as a backdrop for photographic masterpieces.  These images shot separately in the interior and exterior are extraordinary works of art, from the gilded interiors to the urns in the Orangerie that act as a pedestal to display couture gowns. Gazing at these images means that it is going to be a great weekend!
