Paris Says Chill Out With The Love Locks Because Selfies Are More Romantic

Paris

Paris is getting fed up couples placing padlocks on the Pont des Arts railing and tossing the keys into the river to demonstrate their undying love for each other. Romance is great and all, but the locks accumulated over the years until they weighed in at 45 tons and caused the bridge to collapse in June. The bridge had to be evacuated and closed. When the Pont des Arts became so covered in locks that there was no more space, couples moved their antics to other bridges and even started to put locks on the Eiffel Tower. French ecologists are starting to get really worried about the pollution effects of all those nasty keys that were thrown into the river. Keep reading »

A Fierce Spin On The Famous French Motto Spotted In Paris

A Fierce Spin On The Famous French Motto Spotted In Paris

Spotted in Paris: No doubt the work of a diehard member of the BeyHive, someone armed with a can of spray paint graffitied the side of a building with this play on the French motto “liberté, egalité, fraternité” (“freedom, equality, brotherhood”). Parfait! [Cosmopolitan]

The Soapbox: Pharrell Curates Women As Objects In Parisian Art Show

Yoko Ono’s breasts, a model’s ass, and a vagina are front in center at an art show in Paris. It would be just another day in the art world if the person behind it wasn’t one of hip hop’s greatest assets. Which begs the question: Does Pharrell Williams have a woman problem?

The Oscar-nominated musician was recently tapped to curate a modern art show at Galerie Perrotin in Le Marais section of the City of Lights. I was rather excited to check it out on the recommendation of a friend. The show is called “G I R L,” taking its name from Pharrell’s recent album. The themes, according to press coverage in the art world, are a celebration of femininity and of women.

The exhibit featured 37 artists — 18 of them women, including Tracey Emin, Cindy Sherman, Sophie Calle. Marina Abramovic, and pieces by the Guerrilla Girls critical of women’s exclusion from the upper echelons of the art world. Yet upon entering the gallery featuring more than three dozen pieces of art curated by Williams, I felt safely uncomfortable, if that makes sense. Keep reading »

I Want To Go To There: The Sparkling Turquoise Pool Hidden Underneath Paris

This serene scene isn’t a buried relic from the Roman Empire or a magical underground fairy beach (which was my first thought, honestly), it’s actually a reservoir buried under one of the busiest, most crowded cities in the world. Built in 1874, the tank lies undisturbed beneath the streets in the south of Paris, and still supplies about 1/5th of the city’s population with fresh, clean water. It’s obviously closed off to the public to maintain its pristine quality, but oh, what I wouldn’t give to go for a dip… [MNChic]

Kim wore a $20,000 gown modeled after a Faberge egg given to Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton. (No, I’m not making this up.)

Kristen Stewart Paris Couture

Kristen Stewart showed up at the Paris Haute Couture shows in this bold black and white ensemble, comprised of itty bitty leather shorts, a white boucle jacket, super smoky eyes, and her signature scowl/smile (oh K.Stew, never change!). As tempting as it is to write off this outfit purely because of the gratuitous fingerless leather gloves, I actually think Kristen looks totally, totally fierce. What say you?

What do you think of Kristen's look?
