Ralph Lauren honoured with the Chevalier de la Legion d’honneur

The award capped a week of success in the French capital for Lauren. Yesterday, he presided over the official opening of his largest store in Europe, and new French flagship - a six-floor, 13,000 sq. ft emporium on the fashionable Boulevard St Germain. The building, which dates back to 1866, and was formerly an embassy and a hotel, showcases all of the Ralph Lauren men’s and women’s collections, as well as a watch salon, a vintage floor, and a new restaurant called, appropriately, Ralph.
Surrounded by his family - wife, Ricky, daughter, Dylan, and sons, Andrew, and David, who was accompanied by his long-term girlfriend, Lauren Bush - Ralph Lauren welcomed a host of stars and celebrities to a black-tie dinner in his new restaurant, including Marisa Berenson, Gerard Depardieu, Michelle Yeo, Abbey Lee, the editor-in-chief of French Vogue, Carine Roitfeld, and the veteran French actress, Anouk Aimée.
