Another 'moment', beforehand, occured just as my friend and I entered the lobby from the 'back' entrance connecting to the parking garage -- which also happens to be right next to the artist's exit. Who shound emerge but Gillot, dressed down but striking. Recognizing her, I stopped my friend, who then saw her as well, and we stood (likely making the same stupid starstruck face) as she passed not more than a few feet by us. I think we were the only ones to recognize her, making the moment even more serendipitous.
Those of you in New York have much to look forward to!
Why did you not speak to her, tney all speak very good English and are friendly and approachable, and welcome your interest.
I was thrilled to run into them ALL at Midway security as my group was heading back to Toronto and they were going to Washington. Spoke to Vincent Chaillet, Nicolas Le Riche (children in tow) and Aurelie Dupont (also children in tow). I was tempted to say "you are a GODDESS" to Aurelie, but was more restrained.
