Front Page Celebrations
While I was slaving at my computer, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was dining on pasta with black truffles in New York and Prince Albert of Monaco married Charlène in a religious ceremony. The activities of Nafissatou Diallo were not disclosed. Above, a red carpet for Nicolas Sarkozy and all the guests. Sarkozy is in a slightly better position now to win in 2012 even if DSK returns all white-washed.
Below, wedding guest Bernadette Chirac, wife of Jacques, speaks with the former empress of Iran Farah Pahlavi. It's been a while since I've seen a photo of her.
There were all kinds of rumors in the days preceding the marriage about Albert having sired another child. He already has two "illegitimate" children, one by an American woman and the other by an African woman from Togo. Charlène appeared to be on the verge of calling it all off, but apparently changed her mind. The Royal Palace strongly denied the rumors. The Grimaldi children (not Caroline so much as Albert and Stephanie) certainly thought nothing of having babies out of wedlock. When celebrities do it so freely, it's hard to tell young people that they don't have the same rights.
There are loads of pictures at Le Parisien.
