At the time of posting this blogpost about Michelle in Paris making her Lancôme video... I knew the guy was her boyfriend but it was only recently that I found out he is Swiss.
Well it turns out that he is in fact a model, a former Mr Swiss candidate, from the canton of Valais.
A truly international relationship, Michelle an American with Vietnamese roots and Dominique, a Swiss with Swiss/Italian/Austrian roots, they met in Paris and now Dominique moved to Los Angeles to be with Michelle.
