*This is the TOR lipstick from Uslu Airlines – developed by 11 straight guys wanting to find the perfect lipstick colour for women. Which, first of all, is pretty sweet of them to try. Secondly: they succeeded. That colour really is perfect. I love wearing it. James likes seeing it. Thanks, guys!

*I adore Gucci Westman’s apartment on T magazine‘s “Profile in Style”. I also wouldn’t mind her top to toe Céline look.

*”The lady makes Joan Collins look like a backpacker.” Jess Cartner-Morley on Victoria Beckham in the Guardian. Love.

*If there’s a better picture of Anna Wintour out there, I don’t even want to know about it: A brief history of the front row on Nymag.

*”The I-got-drunk-at-a-Caribbean-party corsage.” Of course, no analysis into how we talk about fashion would be complete without the indispensable wisdoms of Michael Kors.

*New York! No, Paris. No, New York. Or maybe Paris? All I know is that I want the “Paris versus New York” book of illustrations.

*Have you seen this? HAVE YOU SEEN THIS? I must’ve watched this video a dozen times last week and it just keeps getting better: Emmanuelle Alt and Mademoiselle Agnès lipsynching to Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”. It’s two parts ridiculous, one part fabulous and altogether the best thing you can watch when you need a pick-me-up. Oh, and the newly launched Paris Vogue‘s website, which the video was made to promote, looks pretty great too. I might have to watch that video again now…

Have a great weekend!

    Danke, diese Front Row-Fotos sind so unfassbar gut. (Der Lippenstift allerdings auch…).

      Oder? Ich LIEBE das Bild von Anna Wintour. Alle anderen aber auch. Und den Lippenstift musst du haben. Du musst!

    Ich MUSSTE auch (Tor haben), ich musste mich aber auch erst daran gewöhnen – bit too orangy, no? – No. Tatsächlich perfekte Farbe, hats off, guys und Danke, Marlene. Hope you’re well!
