Why You Should Make Like Chrissy Teigen and John Legend and Get to Marrakech, Morocco

A week ago, Chrissy Teigen, husband John Legend, and their daughter Luna arrived in Marrakech, Morocco. Teigen announced their vacation on Instagram, posting a photo of herself (clad in a marigold-colored Zero + Maria Cornejo design) with Legend and captioning it simply, “Marrakech!” Throughout the week, they rode camels, ventured into the medina to take in the sights of the spice market, and lounged in a garden, instantly catapulting the Moroccan city to a new It destination. It was the adoptive home of Marisa Berenson and French designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé, who donated their Jardin Majorelle estate to the late designer’s eponymous foundation after his death; it remains a fertile spot for design inspiration, with its bold colors, rich history, distinctive spas, and strong links to fashion — the nation is known for both its tanneries and silver work. See the best and brightest of Marrakech, Morocco on Instagram — from Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, and more — here.
