A wonderful 'Paris Rouge' moment. Le rouge est parfait!

Laurent, does she wear the red "scarf" all the time or is this a special occasion? Lovely with that moody gray "Paris " sky! :)

I've never seen this statue with a scarf of any color.

The scarf was put on thé statue last december 1st for the international day of AIDS fight. It has been left since then and I don't know for how long.
