Puttin’ on the Ritz

I flew to Chicago for a meeting Sunday afternoon and instead of connecting to the wifi and doing work, I relaxed and read my new magazines.  One of my favorite spreads in the April issue of Vogue featured Kate Moss in the Hôtel Ritz in Paris.  It was shot by photographer Tim Walker who is known for creating fantasy photos and this feature is no different.  I found a few of the images on his website but it’s definitely worth picking up the issue for the full story.  The Ritz is closing for renovations so Vogue took the opportunity to have fun just like they did at The Plaza with Sarah Jessica Parker before it also closed for renovations. I’m hoping in this case that the Ritz doesn’t change its iconic decor too much.  I’ve always dreamed of staying at the fabled hotel and I want it to look just like these photos.  Anyone know where I can find some pink bubble bath?

    I’m sure a little cupcake red dye would make you a fab pink bath. if we ingest it it’s safe to soak in? don’t quote me on that one.
