I made my way to the military parade on the Champs Elysées yesterday, and it was very impressive and beautiful. Especially the Republican guard.)

Oh dear, Ludy! That is a bit harsh, is it not? I don't take this 100% seriously and I realize that being French means that this day has more depth for you, but really.


It's ok, I just felt like raving about the parade...) Nothing personal.

Indeed, bedamn Eva Joly.

Back to the subject, yes indeed. As far as I know, it was a very original uniform, designed by Gustave III himself : a tad yellowish and somewhat flashy.
