Outdoor pop-up restaurant draws around 12,000 smartly dressed diners.
Thousands of elegantly dressed Parisians clad all in white dined under the night sky on bridges around Paris last night (June 12) in an unusually chic take on the flash mob.
Organisers said 12,000 to 13,000 people – who managed to score one of the coveted invitations – participated in the 26th “Dinner in White” (Diner en Blanc), which raises money for cancer research.
The “mob” came dressed in elegant, wide-brimmed hats, dainty lace gloves and three-piece suits in varying shades of white, ecru and beige.
