1. Géraldine and Garance posted their video from Hyères today. (In French, but with subtitles.) Hyères is the annual fashion festival in southern France where people like Viktor & Rolf and Charles Anastase were discovered. And I was there also!
I’m really hoping that Sandra, the winner of the prize for best fashion designer, becomes famous because then I can say that I shared a cab with her on the way to a really horrible club called Domino. (This is true, and it’s even funnier if you have seen Domino.)
Like everyone I talked to that weekend, I'm a little in love with Peter Bertsch though. He should have a show someday, like Isaac. Watch the video, you'll see!
2. If you read French, Sened has been blogging from Cannes all week. Apparently the new Tarantino is “Pas mal, mais bon.”
3. Also, Clotilde looking so French (her hair! perfect!) on the Today Show. And Ann Curry pronouncing “herbes” with a silly French accent. P.S. For those of you following at home, Clotilde and I did indeed get to hang out when she passed through Chicago last weekend. She wore red patent leather flats--"I wore them for you," she said--and we went to Paul Kahan's Avec, the more casual little sister to Blackbird. We liked it. Don't worry, despite the name, it's American Contemporary! I didn't take her somewhere French!
