Royal Pains

The French rep for being snooty snobs is not entirely unfounded. In the world of high-end couturiers, Parisian designers have always held an air of superiority over their American counterparts. That rift is explored in documentary Versailles ‘73: American Runway Revolution, a look into the revolutionary runway shows held at the palace in 1973 that served as a showdown between a home team including Dior and Givenchy and such visitors as Oscar de la Renta and Bill Blass.
