ST. TROPEZ, FRANCE
Synonymous with sex, sun, and sand, St. Tropez retains the cachet it snagged as the backdrop for Roger Vadim's Bardot-boosting early movies. Topless bathing first took off (ahem) at Pampelonne beach, and while French women do it with incomparable élan, do check out (surreptitiously) the stunning wives of the Russian oligarchs jostling for the best spot at the beach clubs.
Rub suntanned elbows with: Leather-skinned Lotharios, pert-breasted starlets, and golden-era glamour-pusses. And Naomi Campbell, of course.
Best way to cool off: A Bellini, Riviera-style: fresh-squeezed orange juice, Champagne, and a slug of Grand Marnier.
Beach chic: The outfit you wore to the Caves du Roy last night? Wear it again—even the silver platforms and cowboy hat.
Where to bed down: The Hotel Byblos is a byword for louche jet-setters and the ladies who love them: Mortgage the house and book a suite.
