FASHION CAMPAIGN: French politician Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, a candidate to become mayor of Paris, hit the campaign trail on Sunday morning before taking in the Céline show.

She said she handed out pamphlets about security and taxes to get a dialogue going with constituents ahead of the vote next March. “This is the way to campaign. I start early,” she said. “I also knock on doors.”

Kosciusko-Morizet, who is with the center-right Union pour un Mouvement Populaire party, said she also attended the Yang Li show. “I like creativity,” she said. “This is just for the pleasure of the eyes.”

The 40-year-old Kosciusko-Morizet was an environment minister under former president Nicolas Sarkozy, and is known for her sleek fashion style. She wore a Dior pantsuit to the show.
