I was wondering why Bernard Arnault wife was not at the show - she usually attends all of them by his side. Apparently, things are not going fine between him and his second wife (speculative gossip since the New York mag and the site who originally posted it have now removed their articles). I wonder if Conlene thinks she Bernard is a possibility for her. Perhaps someone should inform her he tends to like accomplished smart women he doesn't go dumspter diving like Albert does. Also contrary to what her flunkies tell her, Charlene doesn't have the body type for the arm candy role some wealthy men prefer. From NY mag:
The Daily Says Bernard Arnault Is Having an Affair With Virginie Mouzat
By Hilary Moss 7/3/12
Apparently, "the fashion world ... is abuzz" about the LVMH CEO and Le Figaro editor's relationship, which, if true, could be slightly problematic because Mouzat writes about some of the brands owned by Arnault. As for Arnault's wife, Hélène, she "reportedly walked out on him last December for a man half her age," the Daily adds. The iPad newspaper seems to be the only one with such a story (we even hit Google.fr), but combing through Getty, we came across a photo of Bernard and Hélène at Louis Vuitton's fall 2012 show in March. However, Hélène was missing from yesterday's Raf Simons debut — Bernard sat between Princess Charlene of Monaco and his daughter Delphine.
Update: The Daily has removed the article from its website.
His two oldest children, daughter and son that were at the fashion show, are not the children of his second wife Helen. Helen is a concert pianist that he married after his divorce (they married in 1990 only eight months after their first date). He has three children with Helen.
