Saturday's French-themed evening in Logue Library wouldn't be authentic without complimentary berets and oh-so-chic cigarette holders ... awaiting the addition of those little white candy smokes of yesteryear!
Not quite artists along the Seine, but pretty close, as caricaturists captured every alumna for a complimentary portrait.
