Paris Fashion Week: Stella, Salma, and 3,000 Appointments

View Larger Map

Paris Fashion Week, according to Condé Nast Traveler's style director Mark Connolly, is one-half glam squad, one-half death march. To buttress his argument, Mark has assembled his doings from yesterday into one Google Map. His story starts below. Read it, then click above to follow Mark's journey from morning canoodling--from afar--with Salma Hayek at the Stella McCartney show to staggering into his hotel room overwhelmed (and "over-wined") the next day.

First, though, he had to get over his jet lag:

8:15 AM: First alarm call.

8:30 AM: Second alarm call.

8:45 AM: Third alarm call. Finally get out of bed. I've officially hit the fashion wall, the moment we all dread, when viewing another fashion show makes you want to commit hari-kari. Fashion fatigue has set in but I have a breakfast meeting at Angelina's with an agent prior to the Stella McCartney show, joy of joys!

Click the map above to see where Mark went from here.  Or, click here, for a larger version of the map.
