Across the street from the Petit Palais, the Grand Palais was built for the World Exhibition of 1900 as was the Eiffel Tower. For years, the extraordinary glass dome roof of the Grand Palais was broken and leaking so much, the space inside could no longer be used for exhibitions. Heating costs, too, were prohibitive. The glass roof is now repaired and there was a music and light show inside last night.
At the Petit Palais, there was an exhibition of fashion in hommage to the late YSL … until late last night.
