What better way to celebrate the 1789 French storming of the medieval fortress and prison, The Bastille, then at a French inspired fete at the Jane Hotel. The evening was hosted by Tarajia Morrell and Emilie Jean, with sponsors including The Smile, Cafe Gitane and Nouvelle Garde. Emilie Jean dressed festively as Marie Antoinette, with other guests decked out as French guardsmen. Adding some extra spice to the evening were a group of French Cancan dancers who looked like they fell straight out of the movie Moulin Rouge.

Hors d'oeuvres were provided by Cafe Gitane with specially themed Bastille day cocktails. Those also in attendance to celebrate Bastille Day were Annabel Vartanian, Lorenzo Martone, Charlotte Ronson, Zani Gugelmann, and the City's Erin Lucas. More photos below:
