PPR Founder François Pinault Made Grand Officer Of French Legion Of Honor

Who was made a Grand Officer of the Legion of Honor this week? François Pinault, that’s who.

The PPR founder received France’s highest civilian decoration on the same day his daughter-in-law Salma Hayek was named a Knight of the Legion of Honor. Just don’t take this to mean PPR is being favored over LVMHBernard Arnault received the same honor back in July. That said, we wonder if François-Henri is jealous.

Anyway, other fashion folk were honored as well! As per WWD:

Designer Jean-Claude Jitrois and Elisabeth Ponsolle des Portes, president of French luxury goods association Comité Colbert, were declared Officers of the Legion of Honor. Among those made a Knight of the Legion of Honor in the annual list were: Mexican actress Salma Hayek-Pinault; Christian Courtin-Clarins, chairman of Groupe Clarins; Marianne Romestain, president of Gérard Darel; Nathalie Tribouillard-Chassaing, managing director of Leonard; Philippe Louvet, international human resources director of L’Oréal Research and Innovation, and designer Philippe Venet.
