The Chateau of Versailles remains forever the emblematic symbol of Louis XIV, whose reign lasted for almost half a century. It is recognized as one of the most beautiful works of art of the 17th century France. The most symbolic of the rooms is no doubt the Hall of Mirrors. During the next century, under the reign of Louis XV, the Chapel and the Opera were completed. The Chateau ceased to function as the seat of official power in 1789 with the French Revolution. This program presents a tour of the many rooms and works of art inside of France's national treasure. The Orangery at the Chateau of Versailles was designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in the 17th century.

For over a year, you can follow live the restoration of a key feature of the gardens of Versailles, the Latona fountain, on http://latone.chateauversailles.fr/en. More than a simple trade, the work of a fountain engineer involves a rich heritage of traditional and artisanal techniques passed on to each fountain engineer by his predecessors.

Lee is a South Korean minimalist painter and sculptor. The 77-year-old has created a variety of artworks made of stone and steel that are being displayed in the gardens of Versailles palace. And all of them are entirely new. Some even have an unusual size to correspond to the spaces in the gardens. That includes this imposing 12-meter-high solid metallic arch sculpture that's enclosed by two giant rocks. Over the past few years, the Versailles gardens have showcased works by other artists as well. But Lee Ufan's work is like no other. The exhibition will continue to run until November 2nd.

When African American models such as Bethann Hardison, Pat Cleveland, Alva Chinn, and Billie Blair boarded the plane to Paris in 1973, they had no idea they would help change the course of fashion and pull off its biggest coup. The 1973 Grand Divertissement at Versailles became history and legend for pitting the crème de la crème of French couture fashion - Givenchy, Dior, Ungaro, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin against upstart American designers Halston, Oscar de la Renta, Anne Klein, Stephen Burrows and Bill Blass. It was not only the first time French and American designers were shown together but it smashed the glass ceiling loudly and irrevocably for ethnic models in high fashion across the globe.
