  Monday Morning Mirth  

Tripping around the Runways online, one can see the most amazing fashions…But one can also Meet the People behind the scenes, the gurus (Tim Gunn, anyone) who breath life into the diaphanous.
Leave it to the Parisians (but of course) to lead the way off the stage and into the neighborhoods with an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, Madame Pompadour herself: Suzy Menkes…

trip the Roberto Cavalli boutique
Just Cavalli 50 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008

can you whisper Rockstar? Read on boys & girls…


Menkes’ wonderful tour of a Marie Antoinette exhibit at the Grand Palais in Paris (see it if you’re in Paris until June 30th). Do not miss the wall of hairstyles by Leonard.


Suzy explores the Phenom of the other Mme. Pompador we keep seeing around town at the opening of Fendi Paris…

    Sigh…today’s post is a lot more fun than work. I find myself agreeing with Ms. Menkes when she says: If you are going to take of all your underwear, you want to be pampered!”

    Oh, to be so young, beautiful and RICH to do this kind of shopping!!
