Inès de la Fressange Légion D’Honneur

  • Pin it

Given that the distinction “Legion of Honor” is awarded to those who contributed to the glory of France ever since Napoléon Bonaparte established it to be so in 1802, today’s choice of “Légionnaires” is at least strange.

Inès de la Fressange’s contribution to the glory of France is not quite obvious to me. Of course she’s famous, of course her face is easily recognizable for having been a Chanel model (now she’s in charge with communications at Roger Vivier), but where’s “la gloire” in all that?
