New Years 2012 Champs Elysées

Today I went to see Diane Krüger (Troy, Inglorious Basterds) light up the Christmas lights on the Champs Elysées. I didn’t think I was going to actually get to see her but I ended up getting pretty close. Thanks to a little bit of climbing skills shuffled a few feet up a light poll in order to see above everyone’s heads. She pressed a button that turned on all the lights on the whole street, and a volcano-like thing shot tons of silver confetti up in the air. It was a pretty cool sight to see. Afterwards she headed towards a building across the street where I suppose she was having a party, an exclusive party of course.

Aujourd’hui je suis allé voir Diane Krüger (Troy, Inglorious Basterds) allumé les lumières de noël sur la rue Champs Elysées. Je ne pensais pas que j’allais la voir mais en fait j’ai été assez proche. Grâce à quelques compétences en escalades je suis monté un lampadaire et je pouvais voir ci dessuis les têtes de tout le monde. Elle a appuyé sur un bouton qui a alluminé toutes les lumières sur toute la rue, et un truc comme un volcan quoi a erupté avec d’argent confetti en l’air. Etait carrément cool à voir ça. Après elle a traversé la rue et elle est entrée dans un bâtiment ou je suppose elle a fait la fête, une fête exclusive bien sûr.

  1. Marion Cotillard did the unveiling of the window displays at Printemps (I think) this week too. Is it just me, or does this whole celebrity-lighting-thing seem weird? There isn’t something comparable in the US is there? It’s possible I’ve forgotten.
