Destinations: The Grand Palais, Paris



YSL (and many others) held its Spring 2008 show at Paris' Grand Palais (which reopened a few years ago after a 12 year restoration -- it was closed when I was there last).  Not breaking any news by pointing out this architectural gem, but thought it was worth highlighting.  According to The Frog Blog, it's the largest existing ironwork and glass structure in the world since London's Crystal Palace burned.  It, like La Tour Eiffel, was built for the 1900 World's Fair, and was meant to be torn down.   If you watch the YSL show, note that first great Blade Runner-cut jacket.
