Michelle Yeoh was bumped up from Chevalier to Officer in the Legion of Honor by French president Nicholas Sarkozy at the Elysee Palace. Her fiance/boyfriend/main squeeze Jean Todt was in attendance hobnobbing with Mrs. Sarkozy, better known at Carla Bruni.
Michelle Yeoh had the ribbon and medal of the Legion of Honor Chevalier pinned on her chest a couple of years ago by the French ambassador to Malaysia in a less formal ceremony at the French embassy in Kuala Lumpur.
The next stop for the globetrotting Michelle will be Taipei where she will help Dior CEO Sidney Toledano open botique next week.
