How glam can you get?!

How glam can you get? Some inspiration from the opening sequence of Lipstick the movie (1976), starring Margaux Hemingway and Anne Bancroft. Ooh la la!

A charitable thought

Sonia Rykiel Carré d’Espoir

Leading up to Christmas is always a fun time to go to charitable auctions in Paris! The combo of fashion designer/celebrity + charity always works wonders, and has the added advantage of making everyone feel good!

Tomorrow evening Dessine l’Espoir will be holding their vente aux enchères featuring 20 designers like Sonia Rykiel and Alber Elbaz, in an effort to raise awareness and support for their charitable actions throughout Africa. Fashion cares? Sold!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Miss France in 2008

Le Calendrier des Miss France 2008

A calendar of Miss France? In any other country this would be a cheesy addition to an automobile garage or a men’s sporting facility, but in France Peter Lindberg snaps the former Misses France and Yves Saint Laurent dresses them! This is good. This is how it should be.

Le calendrier des Miss France, au profit de l’association ELA qui lutte contre la leucodystrophie. Available now in FNAC and from Nov. 23rd in kiosque.

Night Cravings

Restaurant Le LUP

How many times have we moaned about needing a place on the left bank (aside from sandwich grecs! Eew!) to get a late-night bite to eat! With a fabulous nights-only formula, Le LUP is sure to attract all the hot Germainophiles.

Le Lup, 2-4 rue du Sabot, 75006 Paris, Tel. 01 45 48 86 47, M° Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Today’s gossip!

Claude Chirac

It’s not often that news emerges sending fashion, business, and political tongues a-wag, however former first-daughter Claude Chirac is certainly not your average potential employee! According to market sources, Chirac will shortly be named as the newest Director of Communications at PPR, reporting directly to François-Henri Pinault himself. We look forward to seeing what this means for the retail and luxury-goods conglomerate! 

Citoyen, Citoyen!

I’m happy to report that being a good citizen of the world (from France) just got a whole lot easier! I, like many others I’m sure, am always wondering where the nearest bio market is, and would be happy to know where to buy fair trade goods in Paris!  Especially with Christmas approaching! Last year’s Opération Noël was a huge success, and thankfully this year’s edition has just launched, on Le Marché Citoyen. Log on to find bons plans and original gift ideas, whether they be bio, équitables or solidaires!
