Forget Michelle Obama’s European tour, it was Britain’s very own Pippa Middleton who was causing a media frenzy on her visit to Paris recently. After enjoying a short break in Madrid, Pippa swapped the Spanish capital for the French where she watched Rafael Nadal defending his French Open tennis crown at Roland Garros.
Pippa has been in the spotlight since her sister Kate Middleton married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in April this year, and she seems to be handling the attention incredibly well.
Britain’s latest style ambassador Pippa was spotted shopping, and later soaking up the nightlife in the popular Saint Germain district. The trendy Saint Germain area is a favourite for many famous faces. Stars like Kate Moss, Victoria Beckham and Lenny Kravitz have all been spotted there.
Saint Germain – A Parisian shopper’s paradise
Designer labels can be found on almost every corner. But Saint Germain is not just about the latest fashion. Shopping here can be an all round wonderful experience. You’ll find everything from cute boutiques to quaint little bookshops, and when you’ve finally worked up an appetite you can dine at one of the districts many cafes and restaurants.
Cheap flights to Paris depart from most UK airports and if you do decide to visit the Saint Germain district be sure to keep your camera close to hand as you might spot a celebrity or two. Also look out for the summer sales, which start on June 22nd and last for nearly 5 weeks.
