PARLEZ VOUS: Two fashion figures have been honored as being among the highest achieving members of Britain’s French community. As part of the Français of the Year Awards, whose winners were announced Thursday night at South of France house in Mayfair, Roland Mouret was named Artist of the Year, while Geoffroy de la Bourdonnaye, chief executive officer of Liberty, was named Businessman of the Year. “I have always held France very close to my heart, despite being a U.K. resident,” said Mouret. “As everyone knows, us French are sometimes considered too proud, but winning [this award] I think makes me justifiably so.” Raymond Blanc was also named Chef of the Year, while soccer player Nicolas Anelka, who plays for London’s Chelsea team, was named Sportsman of the Year. Previous winners at the awards, which are now in their third year, include Nicole Farhi and Eva Green, who were named Entrepreneur of the Year and Artist of the Year, respectively, in 2008.
