The 1967 French film Belle de Jour presents an elegant Catherine Deneuve as a frustrated wife of a successful physician who decides to spend her afternoons working at a brothel. Some people are busier than others! Although the story shrieks implausibility, her clothing is tailored perfection. The Roger Vivier pilgrim flats she wears throughout the film are still produced today, however the price ($350-$500) is prohibitive. My love note to Vivier is a little pink painting.
