Walk Like Chanel in Paris
Avenue Montaigne was originally called the allée des Veuves (widows’ alley) because women in mourning gathered there.
Today we mourn the loss of pre-2020 shopping, but you can still take a virtual walk in a famous street, dominated by the Chanel boutique.
Marlene Dietrich lived at 35 Avenue Montaigne. At 25 Avenue Montaigne, you will find the Hotel Plaza Athenee, where Grace Kelly stayed.
L’Avenue Restaurant at number 41 is a favourite of Kate Moss. You will find Dior at 30 Avenue Montaigne and finally Chanel at number 51.
