When Vicky Tiel’s autobiography, It’s All About the Dress, came out last year, I read a glowing review in The Wall Street Journal and told my friend, Ed Baynard, that I wanted to buy it. He laughed and said that Vicky was an old and dear friend. Turns out they were ex-pats in Paris together in their early 20s and Ed helped Vicky and her then business partner, Mia Fonssagrives, open their first fashion boutique in St Germain. Vicky and I have since become friends and I could sit and listen to her stories for hours and hours…and have!! When Vicky was recently in Paris, I asked if she would give us a “day in the life” recap of her trip because Vicky is a fashion foodie, too! Her book is filled with recipes received first-hand from the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren.
And be sure to tune in this coming Tuesday, April 25th, for Vicky’s fashion collection debut on HSN.
