Dries Van Noten receives the l’Ordre National des Arts et des Lettres from Jack Lang, President de l’Institut du Monde Arabe

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Tonight was poetic, magical and emotional, Dries Van Noten was decorated with the l'Ordre National des Arts et des Lettres by Jack Lang, President de l'Institut du Monde Arabe. Everything was perfection and I was honored to be able to share this really sweet and touching moment. Dries received the decoration not for what he has done in the past but for what he will do in the future.

After Dries was decorated a dinner of endless delights was served. Pictured above is Gert Voorjans cutting one of the many deserts. 

Bless him,
