Well, it's Fashion Week in Paris and I pretty much missed out on all the action. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that half of my wardrobe comes from Lands End and the other half from Eddie Bauer. At any rate, I did have my first celebrity sighting this afternoon when I spotted Natalie Portman, of Star Wars, Cold Mountain, and Garden State fame, walking her Yorkie around Place de la Concorde. There were some serious fashionista types in crazy heels coming out of the Hôtel de Crillon but Ms. Portman was just minding her own business, wearing jeans and sneakers. No entourage, no sunglasses, and no handbag the size of the Titanic. I also saw French actress Miou-Miou shooting a movie in the Marais last week but since someone else had to point her out to me, I can't really claim sharp eyes for that one.
