OOH LA LA!

YES, JUST SOMETHING ELSE THE FRENCH GET RIGHT...like baguettes and a 35 hour work week.

Coinciding with the Holiday/Resort CurveNY Designer Lingerie and Swim Show™--- La Mode de France and Fashion Show Producer, À Suivre staged a hot, sassy sexy lingerie show on Monday night...





















NOTE: Though Victoria Secrets and the glossy swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated seems to capture most of the media attention on this side of the Pond...trust off, this is the REAL DEAL.

France's top brands served us luscious ensembles that sashayed down the runway, grouped by themes---like "So Seductive," "So Groovy." "So Exotic," "So Gorgeous," etc.
























What separates the aforementioned companies' collections is that many of the luxe fabrics used are unique and proprietary. Many companies still make their underpinnings in French factories too---as the skill level to manufacture these pieces is very high. After all, there is little room for error.























Kudos to the models who walked well and actually had real curves...not the typical catwalker.










































HILARIOUS: M2 Lounge, the locale of said show, is conveniently located next to the strip club, Scores. Bet the latter got so motivated customers from the former.

















SPONSERS: Thanks---Le Wine Shop, Petrossian, Volvic
