Leggy models in lovely lingerie, accompanied by well oiled men and a diminutive French rapper. What a fun way to wind up Festival Mode et Design 2011.

Lingerie shows. Never given to the most fashion forward of occasions, medical but nonetheless the annual Oh La La Défilé Lingerie has become something of a highlight for Festival Mode et Fashion.

Check. I was right and the boyfriend was very pleased.

But what I hadn’t bargained for was the presence of a very enthusiastic (small) French rapper. Not to mention some supremely well oiled male models in spotty socks who got the biggest cheers of the evening. What fun!
