La Mode retrouvée, (#ExpoGreffulhe) the new must-see fashion exhibition at the Palais Galleria, a true gem in West Paris.

This exhibition focuses on the wardrobe of Élizabeth, the Divine Countess Greffulhe, née Élisabeth de Caraman-Chimay (1860-1952), whose beauty and elegance was one of the main inspirations for Marcel Proust and the fashion designers of her time.

On display at the Palais Galliera, there are some fifty models bearing the labels of grands couturiers such as Worth, Fortuny, Babani, and Lanvin.

“I have never seen a woman as beautiful as she” (Proust)

Countess Greffulhe was the epitome of elegance, with glorious outfits to match. This is the first time ever this wardrobe is displayed.

Proust himself wrote to Montesquiou: “There is no single part of her to be found in any other woman, or anywhere else for that matter. The entire mystery of her beauty is in the glow, above all in the enigma of her eyes. I have never seen a woman as beautiful as she.”

Come enjoy a mise en abyme of priceless dresses that belonged to the Countess in a trompe-l’œil scenography at the Palais Galliera.
