DESHABILLE IN DIVA STYLE: Remember it was a Parisian fashion designer who first introduced the bikini and the French actress Bridget Bardot who made those tiny tiny strings so popular. Wear It In Paris this Summer at Paris Plage like the Diva Does enjoying the man-made beach built by trucking in tons of sand covering the quay’s along the Seine! Beaches are spread across three spots (Louvre/Pont de Sully, Port de la Gare and Bassin de la Villette). http://next.paris.fr/english/visit/flagship-events/paris-plages/rub_8208_stand_34146_port_18969
