We know this all sounds too French, too dreamy, too perfect to actually be true—but it is. This summer, Dior rounded up some of their favorite gals, packed them into an old-school train (banish all thoughts of Penn Station or the Long Island Railroad—this was not that kind of train), and drove that train straight to Arles, in the South of France, for the annual photography exhibition Rencontres Arles, and to fete Dior’s outstanding beauty line. Oh, and the man behind it, the equally outstanding Peter Philips.
And lucky for us, Sonya Esman offered to bring us along on the journey. Watch her video below of what happened on the trip, and click through the images to see what exactly was going on with that parrot.

“When we arrived to Arles, we were both taken aback and thrilled to find a parrot casually chilling in the trees at our hotel. I had two parrots growing up, so my nostalgic ways were satiated.”
