{editorial} Vogue - Checking Out: Kate Moss at the Ritz Paris

Bellhop Nicolas Deschamps balances a Roger Vivier silk-and-feather pump on his cap.

Aprils' Vogue contains a stunning editorial of princess Kate Moss donning springs most precious, and might I say {as is not normally par for the course} wearable, couture.  I don't know if it's the pink and gold interior of the Ritz {which I hope is not touched during this super renovation that it's about to undergo}, or the French 76 {wonderful suggestion Kate} talking, but I might actually be in love with these pictures.  Enjoy! XX
p.s. fuck j.lo.  Kate should have been Aprils cover girl.

The Ritz Paris kitchens, once headed by the legendary Escoffier when the hotel opened in 1898, house a team of 80 chefs and staff, who prepare meals for the two–Michelin star L’Espadon, the Bar Vendôme, and room service {as an ex-server, I applaud Vogue for including these hardworking, handsome gents}

 “Gianni’s [Versace] shows were amazing—and sooo convenient. Walk downstairs, go to work: Love that!” says Moss, with housekeepers Khadidja Fakri and Lollie Bacete (standing). Dior Haute Couture embroidered silk dress. Headpiece created by Julien d’Ys
