Va Va Voom
At an automobile contest called Chantilly Arts et Elégance Richard Mille, neither arts nor elegance were ever likely to be in short supply. The fourth year of festivities at Château de Chantilly was held this September and lived up to its reputation, with the watchmaker kicking off proceedings with the inauguration of an exhibition dedicated to Le Massacre des Innocents by Baroque artist Nicolas Poussin. Singers and dancers from Chantilly led the way for guests around the park en route to the exhibition. Over 16,000 guests attended the two-day fair, with 90 classic cars competing in the Concours d’etat and almost 800 in the Grand Prix des Clubs. One of the many, many highlights was a celebration of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, comprising a display of around 30 of its top cars throughout the years, all of which have taken part in Le Mans 24 Hours.
