When it comes to people and street scenes, Paris is hard to beat. Here are some photos from my summer in Paris...

Paris is indeed, a lovely and romantic city - - - vibrant street scenes.
BTW, is there a particular name of the architectural design like say in photo #3?

It's usually referred to as Haussmann Classicism as the dominant style along Paris' glorious boulevards, however that building you singled out deviates to a slightly more individual style, probably because it was designed to grab attention as a hotel or theatre etc. It actually looks like the Hotel Athenee which is an iconic, luxurious hotel of the city, but not sure.

It does look similar to the Athenee but this is Hotel Le Bristol on the corner of Rue Matignon. A gorgeous hotel nonetheless and a highly recommended restaurant.
