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!

Get kornered!

Korner, The Serum

The danger of writing a Paris fashion blog is that it turns into a Colette fan blog! Granted, Colette are probably the most interesting retailer in Paris, have the sweetest collaborations, and are the recognised arbiters of cool; but I’ve decided to promise myself only to include them for something really exceptional. I haven’t been in there for a while now, so yesterday I was beside myself to see they’re selling Korner skincare! Korner is the secret weapon used by Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts. Their serum is a dream product, and one that I am happy to tell you to go out and get asap!

One-Stop Beauty!

Autour de C R

Continuing a sort of beauty train of thought – I adore the way Autour de Christophe Robin feels so entirely intimate and confidential. You may well run into Catherine Deneuve, John Galliano, Penelope Cruz, or Kylie Minogue; but everything is made to feel so relaxed and friendly! You can also book manicures with Bastien Gonzalez, and facial treatments with Joëlle Ciocco; former model, Dorothy Barrick, even sells a capsule collection of her handbags, along with some seriously cute vintage finds! I think I might be happy to live there! 😉
