You love fashion and Paris loves you back, but if you can't face the schlep over to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, you don't probably have to; much closer is the Musée Galliera, the city's biggest fashion museum with 90,000 items housed in the 19th Century palace of the Duchess of Galliera. However, with no permanent collection on display, the place is only open for its temporary exhibitions which last between four and six months each.
The large and diverse collection includes essential pieces from all the major couturiers spanning three centuries, including not only dresses (obviously) but also jewellery, walking sticks, hats, shoes, bags, fans, umbrellas and more. There is also a specialised library for research purposes.
Alain Bernardin founded the Crazy Horse Saloon in 1951, drawing creative inspiration from American striptease.
An institution for night owls, the Crazy Horse Saloon is know for its teasing but tasteful topless dancers, and has been carefully renovating its image over the last few years, with guest spots by stars such as Carmen Electra, Dita Von Teese and Pamela Anderson.
A succession of sassy and glamorous images, Desires combines chic and sensual. Zula Zazou, Jade Or, Psykko Tico or Nooka Karamel will take you into an universe where aesthetics is sometimes combined with humour without ever abandoning the codes of the house.
