I am quite amazed by this colour. Is it brown? Is it beige? It's Etaupé and just as chic and french as its name. Claudia Schiffer is paring it with her Gucci bag and Sergio Rossi shoes.

Found it

The new it girl Pippa Middleton recently made it for a day out in the Talias Tale dress by French connection. The label is available online and in several department stores around the world. And the good news is so is the dress retailing for 80€ it is as elegant as it seems.

Sunday Brunch at Ralph's

Ralph's - 173 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris, France

The it place in Paris on sunday's is now Ralph's. The restaurant is owned by Ralph Lauren and is located on the 6ème arrondissement in Paris right next to the brand's store. It is the celebrity meeting point since it opened last summer and definitely the place to go for a sunday brunch or the best american burger. In winter time you can confortably sit inside next to the fireplace while in summer time the terrace and its amazing cushions are the place to be for at least a couple of hours. The only downside to it? Make sure to book in advance as there is no way to get a table without a reservation. But it is worth the wait! Have a nice Sunday!

She will be replace by Clare Waight Keller who is also leaving her post as artistic director for the bristish brand Pringle of Scotland. Another announcement that contributes to the very unstable environment that the fashion world is immersed in the last couple of months.
Also in the news is the rumor that the maître Pierre Cardin is looking for a buyer for his  tremendous empire that includes his fashion line.

Inspired by...Alexander McQueen

When I saw Pippa Middleton at the royal wedding I immediatly recognised the inspiration behind her look... Cameron Diaz's dress at the Golden Globes in 2009. The white dress is definitely a bridal version of the actress's award dress. One thing is sure... the dress nailed it twice as they both looked stunning.

Here comes the Cannes Film Festival

The Chanel croisière fashion show took place yesterday in the Antibes (close to Canne) and was once again attended by several Karl Largerfeld muses as Blake Lively, Rachel Bilson, Clemence Poesy and Vanessa Paradis. Definitely a fashion statement both inside and outside the runway.
