L’Officiel is by far my favorite French publication.  It does a stellar job of covering fashion, culture and home and it always gives an inside glimpse of very interesting, well-traveled, stylish sophisticates such as Carolina Herrera-Baez.  Last September the magazine did a profile of her in her home in Spain and I nearly died when I saw the photo of Carolina and her sister, Patricia, sitting under gigantic hand-painted plates hung on the wall.  But then, I turned the page and saw the photo of her and one of her sons (she’s married to a Spanish bullfighter) decked out in blue and white, sitting on a beautiful sofa beneath an inspiring pattern of roosters and birds and foliage.  Exquisite.
