More beautiful than the fall-winter collections

Le Pont Alexandre III. C’est magnifique.

Designed by architects Joseph Cassien-Bernard and Gaston Cousin and built by engineers Jean Résal and Amédée d'Alby, it was inaugurated 110 years ago and is now a historic monument.

Cherubs, nymphs and lions. Stone, steel and gold gilt. Beautiful.

  1. I just love the architecture of Paris...all periods, too.
