OBAMAmania at the Palais Royal

The French Press Agency AFP is showing a review of the year in photographies on the iron gates all around the Palais Royal until the 15th January. The US elections are represented on the upper part where you get closer to the old National Library. This is quite the reason for any good Obama enthousiast to jubilate in front of election night pictures, or to make fun of John McCain giving a speech at a deserted warehouse.




Poor McCain surrounded by his friends the boxes...

Now if this pic were any more high-def, you'd really get scared off old people's faces


Aww, isn't she a cutie?

Oooh yaah, I can seeah Russia from mah house! Dooontchaknow!


Oh and in case Michelle Obama is still in need of an inaugural gown, why not check out the vintage creations at Didier Ludot, who's putting his best Balmain dresses on display. Nothing better than high fashion from 1967!


And this Palais Royal art dealer even has more souvenirs for the Obama enthousiast!


So come on down here and rejoyce!

    A little bit of Jackie Kennedy nostalgia ...

    That Balmain is gorgeous. Too bad I'll miss the boogie-ing at the Palais on January 20th.
