WITH HONORS: The French sure love their fine linens and sheets. On Wednesday night, Joan Carl, chairman of D. Porthault, was granted a Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur by the French government. France’s president Nicolas Sarkozy personally chose Carl to receive the award, which was given to her at the French Residence in Washington, D.C. “Thomas Jefferson said, ‘France is every man’s second country,’” Carl said after the iconic red lapel was pinned on her lapel. “How right he was.
