Il fait 30° dehors et vous aimeriez beaucoup, beaucoup, être à la plage. En attendant, c'est bien au bureau qu'il faut être.... et il faut bien s'habiller pour. 


Pour ne pas fondre devant son écran ou dans le metro, il suffit de s'adapter. On oublie la veste, les matières lourdes, les pantalons... et on profite pour être à l'aide dans une petite robe élégante mais fraîche. 

On privilégie des matières naturelles, comme le coton et la soie, les coupes confortables, les es couleurs sobres. On évite le gros imprimé ananas donc, tout comme les dentelles blanches et les robes trop bohèmes. Vous êtes au bureau, pas à Ibiza. 

Inutile de préciser, on surveille ce qu'on montre : ni trop court, ni trop décolleté, ni trop moulant ! C'est le gros piège à éviter absolument. Pensez Michelle Obama plutôt que Kim Kardashian et tout ira bien. 

Découvrez notre sélection et profitez de l'été en toutes circonstances !

Pas la peine d'être invité aux défilés pour jouer le jeu : à l'image de la ville, la Fashion Week londonienne est cool, vivante, accessible. Les événements spéciaux ne manquent pas, tout comme les nouvelles adresses.


Petit tour d'horizon sur les derniers spots londonien à ne pas rater le temps d'un week-end prolongé : 

Henrietta Hotel : l'équipe du Experimental Club s'est expatriée outre manche et a vu les choses en grand : hôtel, restaurant et club privé, le Henrietta est l'une des meilleures adresses de cette Fashion Week, en plein Covent Garden.

Malibu Kitchen : Fashion Week oblige, on prend soin de sa ligne et de son assiette. Avec sa cuisine californienne healthy et sa déco ensoleillée, le nouveau Malibu Kitchen a tout pour devenir le QG de la faune fashion. Petit détail, le Malibu n'est qu'un des neuf restaurants du nouveau hotel et club privé the Ned. Cela fait donc neuf fois plus de chances de croiser Rihanna ou Anna Wintour.

Petersham Nurseries : le restaurant-jardin qui a transformé la petite ville de Richmont en destination cool vient d'ouvrir une seconde adresse à Londres, là aussi à Covent Garden. Une vraie parenthèse Dolce Vita à quelques pas de la Somerset House, où se déroulent la plupart des défilés. Succès garanti, forcément.

The Red Rooster : le restaurant new-yorkais commandé par le chef préféré de Barrack Obama ouvre à Londres sa première adresse hors US. Niché dans le tout nouveau Curtain Hotel, le Red Rooster londonien mélange des classiques new-yorkais comme le Brunch Gospel, avec des nouveautés bien anglaises. Une cuisine du Sud des Etats-Unis à tomber en plein quartier de Shoredicth.

Sans Pere : Mal du pays ? Avec sa petite terrasse, ses mini-pâtisseries et sa déco cool et épuré, le nouveau café Sans Pere c'est le meilleur de la France en version London. On y retrouve aussi les incontournables locaux, comme les toasts à l'avocat et le flat white, le café au lait dont les londoniens ne peuvent pas s'en passer.

Michelle Obama sera extrêmement regrettée par les américains (et même par nous !). Un modèle et une inspiration pour tous, elle s’est montrée accessible et toujours positive.


Le présentateur Jimmy Fallon a donc invité des personnes à venir enregistrer un message d’adieu à Michelle Obama, la remerciant pour ce qu’elle a fait et le guide qu’elle a pu être pour eux.

Mais ce à quoi ces invités ne s’attendaient pas, c’était de voir l’ex première dame en chair et en os sortir de sa cachette après avoir écouté leur message avec émotions. Elle retrouve même l’une de ses anciennes camarades d’université ! 

Découvrez la vidéo ci-dessus.

American President Barack Obama has officially ended his 8 year term in office, and will now begin the process of moving out of the White House. His successor Donald Trump and his family will move in on January 20, 2016. 


Hollywood hotshots such as Tom Hanks and Jerry Seinfeld bid Obama goodbye in an adorable and moving video, which you can watch in our gallery above. It simply goes to show how truly influential he has been in the last eight years, and how dearly his warmth and equanimity will be missed. 

And if you are inspired by the presidential look, then don't forget to shop our edit below for the perfect suit for yourself!

Barack Obama gave his farewell speech last night in Chicago last night, the city which launched his political career. 


The speech was full of hope, but also of warning- that racism and inequality is still rife, stating "we are not where we need to be".  Continuing "If every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hardworking white middle class and undeserving minorities, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclave". 

Obama continued "If we decline to invest in the children of immigrants, just because they don't look like us, we diminish the prospects of our own children - because those brown kids will represent a larger share of America's work force". 

The President also shared some nostalgic sentiments, calling back to his 2008 campaign slogan of "Yes, we can", adding "Yes, we did". 

Obama and the crowd dabbed their eyes when he called his wife, Michelle "my best friend", and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr "a brother". 

See the best celebrity reactions in the gallery above, and watch the full speech...

Time Magazine just named Trump their 'Person of the Year', don't spit out your tea, this isn't a joke. The article, which you can read here, is very well written by Michael Scherer, and you almost find yourself understanding his point- but then it dawned on me, the main reason this article is palatable is because Trump's voice is barely heard within it. Which is odd, for a piece which is all about him. But no, instead what you can hear is logic, statistics, ideology and philosophy- with the odd quote from the President Elect thrown in for good measure.

It's easy to make something sound plausible or even positive when it's dressed up enough, statistics of unemployment and the Obama administration's failings try and persuade you that Trump's election is understandable. 

Scherer writes that Trump's campaign was "not a campaign about the effects of tariffs on the price of batteries or basketball shoes. He spoke only of winning and losing, us and them, the strong and the weak. Trump is a student of the tabloids, a master of television. He had moonlighted as a professional wrestler. He knew how to win the crowd. First he needed to define the bad guys. Then he needed to knock them over". 

This statement is true- Trump did play the media into his hand, he uses sensationalist language to win support, but this isn't the issue. Yes, it makes people feel defeated that such showmanship can win over actual merit, but the problem lies more in how and who Trump defines as 'the bad guys'. How he gets people to agree with him is a lesser issue, it's what he's trying to get them to agree with that is scary for a lot of Americans, particularly the minorities. 

Time magazine understand this fear, and the validity of this fear that many hold. But they also understand why Clinton's campaign, and its want to condemn this political darkness, was its biggest downfall. "By seeking to condemn the dark side of politics, Clinton's campaign may have accidentally validated it. By believing in the myth that Obama's election represented a permanent shift for the nation, they proved it was ephemeral. In the end, Trump revealed in these denunciations, which helped him market to his core supporters his determination to smash the existing elite". 

The article finishes on a note of uncertainty "the truth is no one really knows what is going to happen, up to and including the occupants of Trump Tower. 'It's a very exciting time. It's been an amazing time' Trump says, as the country still tries to come to terms with what he accomplished. 'Hopefully we can take some of the drama out'." 

This drama is unlikely to die down, because it was Trump who built his campaign on drama and won because of it. The phrase "you made your bed now sleep in it" springs to mind- because this climate he's created and egged on, where "white supremacists throw out Nazi salutes in Washington meeting halls for their President-elect" is now his mess to run. 

Scherer finishes with this line "It's an America of renewed hope and paralysing fear, a country few expected less than a year ago. Because of Donald John Trump, whatever happens next, it will never be like it was before".

On the surface this piece makes me angry, but when you reach the end it feels comforting- Trump is our person of the year, whether we like it or not, because he's the new president-elect of America. This is the truth, no matter how uncomfortable. 

Time Magazine naming Trump their 'Person of the Year' is apt. It's sensationalised, click-bait and misleading- just like Trump's political tactics.

Tom Ford, the designer/director, accidentally spilled tea all over the place when asked in an interview if he would dress the US's new first lady, Melania Trump. "She's not necessarily, uh, my image" he said to Joy Behar on The View about Melania, and admitted that he already declined an offer to dress her a couple years ago. 

 
He quickly amended his answer, giving a few more reasons he wouldn't dress Melania. Ford says he's a registered Democrat, that he voted for Hillary in the recent election, and that he's sad that she's not in the White House instead. Besides that, he noted that he didn't think it was appropriate for any public political figure to wear clothes as expensive as his. “Even had Hillary won," he added, "she shouldn’t be wearing my clothes, they’re too expensive. That's not a bad thing, they’re not artificially expensive, it’s how much it costs to make these things, but I think the first lady has to relate to anybody.” 

His line of reasoning drew some serious side-eye from the audience, as Joy pointed out that Ford has dressed Michelle Obama in the past. But Ford was not having it. "Michelle I dressed once, when she was going to Buckingham Palace for dinner with the Queen," he retorted. "I thought that was appropriate. I live in London, so that makes sense." As an afterthought, he added, "And it was an honor." He also talked about current and upcoming projects, including Nocturnal Animals. Ford stayed pretty neutral with his answer, but other designers have been more forthright about their decision not to dress Melania. 

Sophie Theallet, who has been dressing Michelle Obama for the past 8 years, issued a statement on Twitter about her own reasons. "As an independent fashion brand, we consider our voice an expression of our artistic and philosophical ideas. The Sophie Theallet brand stands against all discrimination and prejudice. We value our artistic freedom and always humbly seek to contribute to a more humane, conscious and ethical way to create in this world. I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady. The rhetoric of racism, sexism and xenophobia unleashed by her husband's presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by. I encourage my fellow designers to do the same." 

Sophie Theallet has been the most outspoken, but a source told People magazine that Sophie's not the only designer to shun the Trumps. “This has already been going on for months. Designers wouldn’t lend to Melania, Ivanka or Tiffany, so they either bought the items themselves or wore Ivanka’s brand." We'll have to wait to see if this trend continues, or, if like Carolina Herrera predicts, that designers will be won over by Melania in the end.

It seems like every other week, there is a mass shooting in the news. Just this week, a gun-wielding man injured 9 and killed 1 person on the popular Bourbon Street in New Orleans on Sunday, while another man injured 11 people with his car and a knife on Ohio State University campus on Monday. 


In fact, the Gun Violence Archive recently ran a study that showed that on average, a mass shooting occurs in the United States on 5 out of every 6 days. They defined 'mass shooting' as an incident that leaves 4 or more dead, not including the shooter. 

The problem has gained nationwide attention, and recent events have spurred President Barack Obama to announce “We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world.” In 2016, the June 12th massacre at Pulse (a LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando) which was the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, saw the tragic deaths of 49 people. (The deadliest massacres were back in the 1800's and 1900's, when white mobs and American troops killed hundreds of Native American and Black people in each of the Tulsa Massacre of 1921, the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890, and the Mountain Meadows Massacre of 1857). In 2015, there was the Charleston AME shooting, where a 21-year old white man killed 9 Black churchgoers in a racially-motivated hate crime. In 2014, a 22-year-old UCSB student committed the Isla Vista rampage, killing 6. 

In 2012, a young man killed 26 people, mostly children, at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut. In 2007, a Virginia Tech senior killed 32 other students on campus. And in 1999, two high school students at Columbine High School used four guns and two pipe bombs to murder 13 others. 

Mass shootings are not a uniquely American problem, but other countries have found much more success in curbing the shootings. In Australia, the 1996 massacre of Port Arthur killed 35, sparking national change. After the shooting, the country banned automatic and semi-automatics assault rifles and pump shotguns, created a gun registry, and established a 28-day waiting period for firearms. Since the 1996 policy changes, there have been 0 mass shootings in Australia to date. 

England has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the world. After the 1987 Hungerford Massacre, the country banned most semi-automatic long-barreled weapons, and after the 1996 Dunblane School Massacre, also banned most small firearms. Although there has been one mass shooting since then, which killed 12 in 2010, the shooter in that case used his own legally-owned guns. 

In Canada, guns are legal, but a 1977 ruling established a requirement for potential gun-buyers to get a background check before purchasing. While this has curbed killings, there have still been 11 mass shootings since the 1977 law - one of which was actually committed by a U.S. citizen, who brought his handgun to Canada - and the deadliest of which was a school shooting at the Ecole Polytechnique. The school shooter in that case was also a young man, who killed mostly women engineering students because, in his own words, he hated feminists. From 1995 to 2012 in Canada, all guns had to be registered, but each state dropped this requirement, eventually including Quebec because of a Supreme Court decision in 2015. While Canada does still struggle with mass shootings, it is a fraction of the problem in the U.S. 

In the United States, a study by the Guardian found that in the 20 deadliest shootings in 2015, most of the gunmen used their own, legally-owned firearms. President Obama, in an attempt to follow through on his campaign promises, has made several attempts to strengthen gun control laws. However, most of those bills died in the Senate, so there has not been much gun control reform in the past few years. From comparing U.S. laws to other countries' laws, how do we stack up? Tell us your opinion in the comments below!

In the wake of the November presidential election results, many Americans are taking to the streets in protest. In the past week, more than 200,000 people have started using the tag #NotMyPresident, the ACLU published a plan for impeachment, and tens of thousands of people are peacefully protesting in major cities. 


10,000 protesters showed up for Anti-Trump protests in New York, with more marching in Chicago, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco, Oakland, and more. A "Million Women" march on Washington is also being organized for Inauguration Day. President-elect Trump is a polarizing politician by any standard, but why exactly are so many people protesting these election results?

Well, a lot of it has to do with the American political system. The presidential race actually includes two votes: a popular vote, and an electoral college vote. The popular vote is by the people - 1 citizen, 1 vote. Simple democracy, right? Except that the president is not chosen by popular vote. Instead of being based off the popular vote, the president is elected only based on the electoral college vote. So what exactly is the electoral college?

The electoral college is a small group of private individuals. They are not voted in by citizens, nor do they work their way up to their positions. Instead, they are appointed by state legislatures, in closed-door meetings. In total, there are 583 electors from all 50 states. That means that only 583 people, instead of the 319,000,000 US citizens, get to decide on the president.

Most of the time, the electoral college vote and the popular vote turn out the same way - with a few notable exceptions. The only four elections in all United States history to have this conflict happened in 1824, 1876, 1888, and 2000. This year's election marks only the fifth time in the nation's history that the electoral college vote contradicted the popular vote. 

While there was some backlash on these occasions, it does not compare to the scope of this year's protests. In fact, these protests are completely unheard of for a modern American presidency, according to Douglas Brinkley, professor of presidential history at Rice University. 

Douglas stated that there have not been widespread demonstrations on this scale since Abraham Lincoln's election in 1860. After President Lincoln won only about 40 percent of the popular vote, protests across the country broke out spontaneously, he added.

The popular vote this year, while not entirely counted yet, is widely attributed to Hillary Clinton, who had literally 1,000,000 more votes than Trump - polls now put her at 61 million voters, and him at 60 million. Could this be what is angering protesters? 

Bernie Sanders, who lost the Democratic nomination to Clinton, had the following to say: "We have a First Amendment. People are angry. People are upset. And they want to express their point of view that they are very frightened, in very, very strong disagreement with Mr. Trump, who has made bigotry the cornerstone of his campaign. I think that people are saying, ‘Mr. Trump, we have come too far in this country fighting discrimination and bigotry. We’re not going back. And if you’re going to continue that effort, you’re going to have to take us on.’

Nevada Senator Harry Reid agreed with him, saying "If this is going to be a time of healing, we must first put the responsibility for healing where it belongs: at the feet of Donald Trump, a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate. Winning the electoral college does not absolve Trump of the grave sins he committed against millions of Americans. Donald Trump may not possess the capacity to assuage those fears, but he owes it to this nation to try.”

In the past few days, many people - most notably California Senator Barbara Boxer - have been calling for the end of the electoral college. According to Boxer, the electoral college is an "outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society." She added, "When all the ballots are counted, Hillary Clinton will have won the popular vote by a margin that could exceed two million votes, and she is on track to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama. This is the only office in the land where you can get more votes and still lose the presidency."

This is not the first time that Americans have tried to abolish the electoral college. In fact, a 1969 amendment to do so did pass the House Representative Committee, then was approved by President Nixon, but finally lost in the Senate, by only two votes. In fact, opposition to the electoral college is so widespread that in November 2012, Donald Trump himself tweeted, "The electoral college is a disaster for democracy" - garnering 96,000 'likes' and 138,000 retweets. After his nomination, Trump was quick to recount his earlier words, tweeting "The electoral college is actually genius".

In the divided nation, many disagree with the protesters. Robert Pittinger, a Congressman from North Carolina, said about the protesters "The grievance in their minds, the animus, the anger – they hate white people because white people are successful and they’re not." Ted Cruz agreed, stating that protesters are just "leftist agitators who crossed the line, who are trying to silence a voice they don't like."

Donald Trump responded to the protests, telling the nation, "Don't be afraid. We are going to bring our country back. But certainly, don't be afraid." When asked why people were protesting, he replied "That's only because they don't know me. I just don't think they know me." Police have been attempting to end the protests by using tear gas on crowds of men, women, and children, and arresting over 100 people nationwide so far.

Yesterday, the new First Lady Melania Trump and her husband, President Elect Donald Trump made their way to the White House to meet with current First Lady and President Michelle and Barack Obama (respectively). 

These two vastly different women appeared to enjoy tea together as their husbands glumly shook hands for an official photographer (Let's be honest, the photos of Mr. Trump and President Obama shaking hands aren't exactly what they'd look like had Senator Clinton won the election).

@realDonaldTrump tweeted yesterday, "A fantastic day in D.C. Met with President Obama for the first time. Really good meeting, really great chemistry. Melania liked Mrs. O a lot!" 

The torch will soon pass from one First Lady to another, and media outlets are already predicting Melania will fulfil the duties of First Lady as more of a Jackie O character than Michelle, Eleanor Roosevelt, or even Laura Bush.

We can only speculate whether or not this is due to Melania's glamorous background as a fashion model or because of her marriage to a billionaire tycoon.

Scroll right through our gallery above to see memorable outfits Michelle has sported throughout her time as First Lady, and looks worn by the new First Lady Melania as she supported her husband on the campaign trail!
