“Never trust a woman who doesn’t like to eat. She is probably lousy in bed”
Federico Fellini

La Cantante  hace sólo una semana estrenaba melenita corta. ¿Has tirado de extensiones, Beyoncé?

Eighty years ago this month, Levi Strauss & Co. forever changed women’s fashion with the introduction of Lady Levi’s® jeans — the world’s first jeans made exclusively for women.

Adriana Lima for Versace for Riachuelo Campaign

"Tengo 99 problemas, pero mi trasero no es uno de ellos". Esta es la leyenda en el sexy body que se ha puesto la cantante Beyoncé para uno de los posados que ha compartido en su web bajo el epígrafe "Mi Vida"
I got 99 problems but my back(a...) is not one of them."


When I translated Mean Girls into the French  language, you seemed très excited.
So what better way to combat workweek ennui than with another classic—Cluelessmade into French memes.
 enjoy, and use the quotes yourself if you like...I hope not sporadically!
PS: In France, the movie's called "Les collégiennes de Beverly Hills."  Ça va?

Wait a minute I love Josh

Beauty is something  women think about often.
It’s not a question of vanity, it’s about pleasure.
Beauty is a ritual.

Lips or Respect....???

How about Respect with lips(smiles)

When you blow your candles of your Birthday cake
you are supposed to make

a wish....mine was quite simple- see the Jewish Princess play at center court at
Wimbledon........y no son sueños guajiros, not  pipe dreams.....very plausible.

Victoria's Secret or Chanel? Chanel of course.......

There was a time when we sent the undesirables to islands. Now you have to buy an island just to get away from them.

Been there done that

Love of the Babushka - Babushka Chic


Paris, Tuileries Garden, Vicki Archer

Reading these tongue in cheek questions-not-to ask-in-Paris

I thought you would have a giggle over them.

Where is Note-er-dayme?
It’s Notre-Dame de Paris , not the football university.

Can I get this to go?
Takeaway is still a bit of a no no in Paris

Dressing on the side? A skinny latte?
French cuisine is usually about more not less.

Where is the Eiffel Tower?
As if you could miss it :)

Invalides, Paris, Vicki Archer

Is the Tour de France in town right now?
It’s a once a year race and every Parisian knows exactly when and where.

Where can I buy a beret?
Wearing a beret is not what we want to do.

What perfume are you wearing?
French women may not share their innermost secrets with a stranger.

Can you take one more photo of me jumping at the Trocadero?
Done and done.

rue Cler, Paris, Vicki Archer

Should my streetwear always match the bistro chairs?
I couldn’t resist snapping this guy on rue Cler in the 7th… perfect colour co-ordination :)

A little fun 
Have you got any embarrassing Parisian questions that we could add to the list?

Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz

While I thought I'd seen it all in the way of custom Hermès, I've never laid eyes on the likes of Abdulaziz's Birkin, hand-studded by  Eddie Borgo. Ditto the travelling beauty salon she rolls with. I am  talking enough Oribe to stock Andy LeCompte and enough Tom Ford to supply the counters at Bergdorfs. But we mean, what else would you expect from one of the first buyers (we're talking in the entire world) to latch onto everyone from Erdem,Prabal GurungMary Katrantzou and Jason Wu? And if this is what she brought for a week in Paris.


Privet!! I’m in the mood for style that doesn’t fit the definition of ‘ordinary’. Today is all about a particular street style look from the Ukrainian model Mila Krasnoiarova. I’m dubbing this look ‘Félin Sauvage- aka french for cool cat’, It’s her features, and makeup that appear so fierce, and so catty.
I can’t stop staring at her top, it’s unique, sporty, edgy, cool cat.

The adventures of Peepy and Lady Lee..........

a little take on Japan-日本,

In Japanese, there’s a magic phrase that softens requests, expresses gratitude, opens doors and makes everybody feel good. The phrase is よろしくお願いします(yoroshiku onegaishimasu) and, you guessed it—there’s no exact English translation.

Yoroshiku onegaishimasu defined (kind of)

The simplest, quickest and easiest way to understand yoroshiku onegaishimasu is that it means both please and thank you. It’s used to make a request and also to thank the person, either before or after they do it for you. 


Fat Grafting to correct hollows of Upper or Lower Eyelids

Structural fat grafting can be performed on upper eyelid hollows, to smooth hollows under the eyes, to fill sunken cheeks, for filling sunken hollows under eyes eyes and is often used for blepharoplasty correction when too much skin and or fat has been removed in an eyelid surgical procedure. Fat Grafting requires specialized training and specialized surgical inst

some of the best, some of the chic and some of the beautiful in the world!!!!

"Les Plus Dorés" - “the most golden

   HH Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned 

Sheikha Mozah looks absolutely amazing in Black.

It is so cool that Sheikha Mozah had this M sign (stands for Mozah of course) on her Dior couture when Bill Gaytten was the creative designer of Christian Dior .

Deggou El Toboul is the first track to be officially released from the new album for The Queen Of Stage Myriam Fares. The scenes of this music video are real...




Jcrew in Paris

JCrew arrives in Paris!

Not one, but two shops opening early next year, March to be exact for all the ladies out there! But you know the best part may be the mens store opening a few months later. I love the mens shirt, and really, SO French. Unbuttoned down to there, and more than likely paired with a cool pair of women’s tailored slacks and some flats.
Double the good news for Parisians, and double the wardrobe.

Black & Tan

Love the sweater tied as a scarf.


This image, from the November issue of Vogue, makes me smile.

First controlled touchdown on a comet nucleus

45 and rocking it! Miss-Glow Jennifer Lopez flaunts her incredible abs in tiny cropped top. Quite spectacular when you think that she once has delivered twins. The proof that dance is one the best anti-aging.

I am sure you did not know... but, supermodel Gisele is the older of her fraternal twin by five minutes. Patrícia now acts as her older sister's manager. Easier to trust your manager when it stays in the family. But again, I know a few stars that were betrayed by their relative-manager.

We will endure
The world may smolder,
But we will endure
Despite our foes
Who crave our destruction.
We will endure!

We will endure
We are an eternal people.
No matter how wretched
The season, the hour,
We will endure.
