At the close of Paris Fashion Week on October 3rd, Harper's Bazaar Editor-in-Chief Glenda Bailey was presented with the insignia of Chevalier dans L'Ordre des Arts et Des Lettres. The award, which was established in 1957 by the French Ministry of Culture, is designed to recognize an individual's contributions to arts and literature.
Also present at Bailey's celebration were designer Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton, Alexander Wang, and Lanvin's Alber Elbaz, who presented Bailey with the medal (PS: We love that photo of them, top center—they're so cute!).
Fashion and creative luminaries previously awarded the Chevalier include Yohji Yamamoto, director Ang Li, the amazing Tim Burton, Philip Glass, and William S. Burroughs (also, Kylie Minogue and Shakira).
