TOASTING THRASH: A petite medal of the French Legion of Honor was pinned to Becca Cason Thrash’s Roland Mouret dress when she welcomed guests to the party celebrating her honor at Meg Goodman’s magnificent Houston estate. “This is a baby version of the medal for the madame chevaliers because the medal is so big and heavy it would weigh down your dress,” Thrash explained, spreading her fingers wide to approximate its size. “The French — they think of everything — except air conditioning and garbage disposals!”

A series of her closest friends toasted Thrash at the elegant poolside soiree. “When we were leaving Paris I asked Becca, ‘Where are your ribbons?’” recalled her husband, John Thrash. “I pinned it on her. We have never experienced Charles de Gaulle Airport the same way. We were whisked through. I wondered, how much do these cost? I’d like to have one.”

Cason Thrash earned the highest French honor by raising millions for the Louvre Museum.
