Gabrielle Choo at home for the holidays…

AT HOME WITH GABRIELLE & CHRISTOPHE CHOO

Recently returned from Paris where they attended the international and aristocratically star-studded Bal de Crillon débutantes ball, Beverly Hills real estate agent Christophe Choo and his sublimely charming wife Gabrielle-Duchess von Schoeneberg, graciously invited Beverly Hills Resident Magazine for a quiet moment At Home to discover why Beverly Hills remains one of their favourite cities in the world.
